Chrissy Teigen’s reason for never divorcing John Legend is too good


We can always rely on Chrissy Teigen to deliver a dose of refreshing honesty.

From celebrating her stretchmarks and sharing her struggle to conceive (she used IVF) to opening up a dialogue about her battle with depression and anxiety, she’s never been one to hold back from the truth.

And Teigen, who has a 16-month-old daughter with Legend, has never been one to shy away from mocking her husband on social media, either.

From calling him out on Twitter for not answering his phone during the earthquake in Los Angeles, to sharing a Snapchat video of him attempting to untangle her necklaces after a night of drunken partying at the Grammy Awards, to acknowledging all those social media babies that look like him, Teigen has turned teasing John Legend into something of an art form.

“I try to deprecate him because he’s so perfect,” she told Us Weekly.

So, when someone asked Teigen why she’ll never call it quits on her marriage, we weren’t surprised that she had a typically hilarious answer up her sleeve.

“I told him the number one reason we are not getting divorced is because I refuse to see another woman with my baby,” she deadpanned.

All joking aside, Teigen went on to acknowledge how lucky she is to have found a partner as respectful and supportive as Legend.

“I got very, very lucky,” she said. “I don’t know who else could put up with all the shit we are constantly dealing with.

“Kids, friends and work are hard, but John is the easiest part of everything.”
