John Legend, who’s real name is John Roger Stephens, is a crazy talented Grammy and Golden Globe winning musician. Legend has been married to model, cookbook author and television personality, Chrissy Teigen, for four years, but they’ve been together for 11 years, which is a huge feat in Hollywood! Chrissy and John are one of the cutest celebrities couples as they are constantly gushing over one another in interviews and on social media and a decade later still cannot keep their hands off each other! Here’s a look at 10 things you didn’t know about John Legend and Chrissy Teigen’s relationship:

8. How They Met

John and Chrissy Teigen got married back in 2013 after they’d been dating for seven years! The superstar couple met in 2006 after Teigen, who was a catalog model at the time, showed up for a casting call to be in a music video. She was eventually cast in the part as Legend’s love interest in the video for his single, “Stereo.” In an interview with Cosmopolitan she recalled their first encounter: “I walked into John’s dressing room to meet him, and he was ironing in his underwear. I said, ‘You do your own ironing?!’ He said, ‘Of course I do.’ I gave him a hug.” They spent 14 hours together working on the video shoot and afterwards went back to his hotel to grab some In-N-Out burgers. “I’m not going to lie. We hooked up,” she admitted, but she also said she gave him his space and the two took on a casual relationship, texting back and forth or talking on the phone. She also couldn’t help but notice him showing up on red carpets with other women on his arm. “I let him be himself for a while. The worst thing you can do is try to lock someone like that down early on, then have them think, there’s so much more out there. I played it cool for a long time. Never once did I ask, ‘What are we?'” she said.

7. The Song “All of Me” Was Written About Her

John Legend’s hit song “All of Me” on the 2013 album Love in the Future was an overnight international success and is credited as the biggest hit of his career. The song sat at the top of the charts for weeks and was the best selling song in the United States in 2014. What’s best about this record? It was written in dedication of his now wife, Chrissy, and she’s even featured in the music video which was shot in Italy just days before their wedding. He wrote it back in 2011, but it wasn’t released until 2013.  Not surprisingly, the song holds some tender sentiment to Chrissy — she cried the first time she heard it! In an interview with Vibe, she said, “It’s not just a song to me. It’s so personal for me. I don’t really listen to it like a song. I listen to it as like ‘oh, that’s my husband he’s singing about us.’ It definitely resonates with a lot of people and a lot of people love it and get it. I think it’s a very honest love song. A lot of them are flowers and butterflies and I think ours is kind of more realistic and he’s showing obviously my smart mouth, my curves and edges.”
