Chrissy Tiegen covers Cosmo, reveals John Legend once broke up with her

Cosmopolitan - December '16 - Newsstand

Modeling is obviously second nature to Chrissy Teigen, so it’s probably no surprise that she looks absolutely stunning on the cover of the December issue of Cosmopolitan, which will hit newsstands on November 8. Side note: I covet that silver gown. The 30-year-old model, who shared pictures of her adorable daughter Luna’s first Halloween this week, (and also an amazing recipe for roasted pumpkin seeds) spoke with the magazine about her marriage to singer John Legend. John and Chrissy she met in 2007 on the set of his video for the song “Stereo.” If you watch the video, you can see that the chemistry is definitely there. They have been happily married since 2013.

But, as Chrissy told Cosmo, the couple’s love story almost had an abrupt ending. Their union was almost over before it began – all over what was probably a case of the sniffles. As Chrissy tells it:

Early on in the relationship, I was on tour with him and he’d gotten sick. He was feeling really bummed and stressed out. He was like, “I can’t be in a relationship right now.” That lasted for one day. Literally, a day. I knew it came from a place other than us not working…I always joke, “Remember when you tried to break up with me?” He’s like, “Yes, sorry. Big mistake.”

Chrissy also revealed that she wasn’t the first model John courted. From what she says, it seems like the modeling world is a small one, as she’s encountered some of his exes – and she is completely okay with that.

I didn’t know it, but John used to be a notorious modelizer. To me, he was the sweetest teddy bear. What’s funny is that I get along with everyone he’s ever been with. I end up really liking them. After I see them, I’ll tell him, “Oh, I was on-set with your ex today—it was fun!” … It was before me, so it’s fine.

If you want to know more about Chrissy and John’s relationship and, according to the magazine’s teasing cover headline, “the bedtime ritual that keeps her marriage hot” (for me, it’s brushing my teeth, but I know that’s not a worthy tip for the pages of Cosmo), pick up the December issue of the magazine on Tuesday. I might buy it for the article on how to get a good night’s sleep myself.

    This isn’t new info. If you follow HONY they talked about breaking up for a day in their photo caption. I believe this was when Brandon was photographing at the Met Gala but I cannot remember.

  2. Clare says:

    she is a beautiful woman, but she looks kinda crazed on that cover…

    • Cool Character says:

      She does look a little crazy in the eyes.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Yeah, judging by that cover, modelling isn’t second nature to her.

    • pinetree13 says:

      LOL I was just going to say, her body looks amazing in that dress but her face looks SCARY! Like she looks like she’s about to say “Heeeerrreee’sssss CHRISSY!!!!!!!!!!!!!” while holding an axe. I don’t know why they picked that photo.

  3. Locke Lamora says:

    They’re both still incredibly annoying. Does she have anything other to talk about apart from her husband?

  4. Shell says:

    Men are such whiny babies when they’re sick. Glad to know it’s not only my hubs.

    • Wiffie says:

      There’s a case of man flu that just finished over here. Wish i got it instead of whatever sickness i got, because i still had to do the 19 hour stay at home mom workday coasting on 2 hours sleep, but he got to call in to work and take five hour naps for 2 days. 🙁

      Next time I’m trying to catch the Man Flu.

    • swak says:

      Used to make my ex stay in the bedroom and not come out, except for the bathroom and food. That way I didn’t have to deal with it.

  5. jerkface says:

    I want to break up with her too and I don’t even know her.

  6. KL says:

    I love her, but that’s a terrible cover photo.

  7. Jade says:

    She is not photogenic…l suspect she’s the kind of person who looks better and more captivating in person.

    • pinetree13 says:

      I have always thought this! Like she’s never seemed pretty to me even on that show she hosted but I figure she must look better in person as some people do. Odd to be a model when you’re not particularly photogenic?!

      • crtb says:

        Never understood her appeal. I don’t find her pretty and she comes across as a fame whore who has to always put herself in the spotlight because we might forget her. She is married to a great looking talented guy with a beautiful baby. I wish she would enjoy her life and not feel the need to spotlight her every move and opinion. She doesn’t come across as very smart.

    • ronaldinhio says:

      I find her stunning but far from what we expect or have been fed as typical ‘beauty’

    Love her, love her husband, and I think their daughter is adorable. I like that they are both confident in each other and their relationship. That said, her posture (slouched shoulders), combined with wrong (or none at all it seems) support under the dress, makes the whole look sloppy-looking. Which is too bad, because her makeup, hair, and that dress are just on-point. I hate the slouched weird poses they make women do on magazine covers. Why can’t they be shoulders back and proud? Bad posture can make a great outfit look horrible!

    She is so butter face.
