- Chrissy Teigen opened up to Good Housekeeping about her relationship with John Legend, who she’s been married to since 2013.
- The cookbook author revealed that she and Legend don’t get into disagreements too often, but she’s learned from their past fights.
- “I’ve learned to listen to what the other person is upset about and try to make sure that I’m doing everything to not let that same, dumb fight happen again,” she said.
- Teigen added that she and Legend balance each other because she gets “very passionate and loud” while the singer is “a diffuser.”
“I’ve learned to listen to what the other person is upset about and try to make sure that I’m doing everything to not let that same, dumb fight happen again,” she told Good Housekeeping during an interview.
“It helps that John and I fight very differently,” Teigen added.
The “Cravings: Hungry for More” author also said that she and the Grammy-winning singer balance each other out on the rare occasions when they do get into disagreements.
“I get very passionate and loud, and he’s very much a diffuser,” she said. “But in the end, we’re both apologizers; we don’t like to dwell on the same thing. A lot of our fights revolve around – we don’t have them often – scheduling, communication, or ‘You told me this, but I was holding Luna [their daughter], and I was baking cookies at the same time, how was I supposed to listen to this and have a conversation?!'”
In the past, the couple has spoken openly about their disagreements. Back in 2016, Teigen revealed that she and Legend “got in the biggest fight at Kim and Kanye’s wedding that you’ve ever seen in your whole life.”
Teigen explained that she was worried that Legend’s performance at the 2014 event would take the spotlight away from the newlyweds.
“You know when you think everything’s about you? I was like, ‘We ruined the wedding and everyone noticed’ and everyone’s like ‘no, not really, nobody noticed,'” she said.
More recently, the mother of two called out Legend for his use of the word “simmer” and sparked a Twitter debate about the meaning of the cooking term. Legend told the Daily Beast that he believes simmering refers to a low temperature, while Teigen says it’s specifically about the “little pops of bubbles” that happen with the water.
Despite small quarrels and playful trolling online, the couple, who met in 2006 and got married in September 2013, has revealed other keys to making their relationship work.
While Teigen was experiencing postpartum depression following the birth of her daughter, she revealed that Legend would go out of his way to do things that made her happy, like going to Medieval Times and wearing a goofy hat. She also said that he “cooked seven days a week” when she was pregnant.
