John Legend had nothing but sweet words as he celebrated his wife of six years, Chrissy Teigen, on her 34th birthday.


The world revolved around Chrissy Teigen yesterday as she turned 34. While everyone was glad to celebrate the former model and cookbook author, no one was more excited than her famous husband, John Legend.

Legend took to Instagram to shower praises on his woman and the mother of his two-kids with a candid portrait of Chrissy wearing an elegant gold kaftan and staring sweetly at the camera.

In the caption, Legend gushed about how he loves Teigen more than ever as he was celebrating his "Queen's birthday."


He also spoke about how grateful he was for the life they built before thanking the model for "making every day so amazing." Fans and celebrities alike including, Kris Jenner, rushed to the comments section to wish Chrissy a happy birthday.

According to PEOPLE, John's shoutout to his wife came on the same day she shared a photo of herself posing with friends dressed in a onesie covered with pictures of Legend's Sexiest Man Alive PEOPLE cover.

The printed ensemble, which was used to clap back at trolls who were against Legend's title, garnered a lot of buzz as the "All of Me" crooner himself described it as "stunning" in the comments section.

Chrissy and John have always shared a love that makes them the envy of many since their wedding in Lake Como, Italy, on September 14, 2013.


While it might seem as though theirs is the perfect love story, Style Caster reports that it wasn't love at first sight when the couple first met in 2007 on the set of the musician's music video "Stereo."

Legend once confessed in an interview that he didn't start having feelings towards Chrissy until much later when they hooked up and began texting and calling for about a year. 


Speaking about the early times of their relationship, Legend said:

"I fell in love with her over the phone because she is good with those 140 characters. At the beginning of our relationship, we were texting a lot, and I started to see her sense of humor. We would talk on the phone, and I started to fall in love with how engaging and witty and funny she is."


The EGOT winner popped the question during a Christmastime trip to the Maldives in 2011, and two years later, they tied the knot. 

The birthday celebration comes after Chrissy clapped back at critics who trolled her for having "chefs and nannies."


According to E! Online, Chrissy shared a photo of her kids with three employees on Black Friday in the spirit of Thanksgiving and wrote that she was "grateful for the people that make our dysfunctional home functional."

However, one user was quick to come at her writing,

"'AKA' thankful for my household staff of chefs and nannies.'"


Not letting the negative vibes hold much weight, Chrissy defended her clap back queen title and replied the troll,

"Literally just said that, but you sure got me."

Chrissy and John are proud parents to two children, Luna Simone, 3½, and Miles Theodore, 18 months.
