Pop star John Legend (43) and model Chrissy Teigen (36) have been happily married for more than nine years. It sparked on the set of a music video in 2006, but Legend is now at odds with his behavior at the time. "I think I was more selfish at the time," he said on the On Purpose with Jay Shetty podcast. "I wasn't a good partner at the beginning of our relationship. Even though I was very much in love with her and really looking forward to being with her. I was still selfish. I was in my mid-20s and not ready to be the committed partner be who I am now."
The daughter Luna (6) and the son Miles (4) have emerged from the marriage with the 36-year-old. Two years ago, Teigen had been pregnant for the third time, but she lost her son, Jack, at 20 weeks to a pregnancy complication. The model and the musician went public together at the time and spoke of a miscarriage. She corrected that statement in September, speaking of an "abortion to save my life for a baby who had absolutely no chance". In early August, the model happily announced that she was pregnant again.
Legend said on the podcast that he was able to learn a lot about Teigen's personality, which helped him appreciate her even more. "How she reacts to stress, how she reacts to life, how she can find a joke in even the craziest of situations... even in grief she's able to find humor," he added.
