Washington D.C. [USA], Nov 13 (ANI): Singer-songwriter John Legend and Chrissy Teigen gave us major power couple goals when the musician got emotional while honouring his model-wife at the Glamour's 2018 Women of the Year Awards and shared all the reasons why he loves his wife.
The 39-year-old singer opened up about all the reasons why he and everyone else, can't help but adore Teigen, reported E! Online. "I have a career in the music business, but we all know who the star of the family is. She's the heart and soul of the family too... But I'm not the only one who loves her. Many millions of people who aren't married or related to her love her too," he said.
Talking further about the amount of love she receives, he said, "The number one comment I get from people who USED to be MY fans is how much they LOVE Chrissy. She gets bigger cheers than I do at my own concerts. They love her!"
The 'All of Me' singer continued speaking about his lady love and listed the endless qualities that fans adore about his wife: her beauty, honesty, passion and loving personality.
"I think the world may have missed out on Chrissy's full awesomeness if it weren't for social media. She would have never fully shone the way she does if she were filtered by publicists and handlers," he said.
He expressed that Teigen's biggest impact "may be the way she proves that just by being the person you are, you can make a difference. Being who you are, unapologetically, you can make a difference".
In an emotional moment, he shared how humble Teigen is even after selling a national bestseller and becoming a television host. He said, "In her Glamour profile, she talked about a time when we were at this big event and she was crying in a dressing room because she felt so overwhelmed by the illustrious company she was in. We were celebrating the TIME 100 and she felt like she didn't belong. How could she be worthy of the likes of Oprah, Christine Lagarde, Michelle Obama?"
He got teary-eyed towards the end of the heartfelt speech and said, "Well, I'm here to say that you belong here. I think it has become very clear to Glamour magazine and to many millions of people around the world that you are more than worthy of this honor tonight."
The 32-year-old model, who looked like a vision in an angelic white dress, then took the stage to receive the award. She said that she was blown away by John's emotional speech. "John didn't even cry when I was giving birth," she jokingly said while addressing the crowd.
The much-in-couple first started dating in 2007 after meeting on the sets of John's song 'Stereo'. They later got hitched in Como, Italy. (ANI)
