Chrissy Teigen and John Legend tear up while talking about their love for each other
The entertainment industry has become a battleground of late: beleaguered with carcasses of relationships past. I mean, we weren't even over Anna Faris and Chris Pratt's separation (or that of Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan's for that matter), when Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson abruptly called it quits last month.
Thankfully, in this midst of all this, we have had one shining beacon of hope: Chrissy Teigen and John Legend. And if you weren't already convinced that the pair are Hollywood's most adorable couple, then their heartfelt and tearful tributes to each other on stage at Glamour's 2018 Women of the Year Awards will have only served to cement this.
Taking to the stage to honour his wife as one of Glamour's Women of the Year, John began by introducing himself as Chrissy's trophy husband, before adding that while he is a Grammy award winner, it is Chrissy who is the star, as well as the heart and soul of the family.
John also acknowledged that he isn't the only person who adores Chrissy. "Everywhere I go, I meet people, fans, who used to ask me for an autograph or tell me how much they love my music. Now the number one comment I get from people who used to be my fans is how much they love Chrissy. She gets bigger cheers than I do at my own concerts."
Recognising her heart, honesty, humour, beauty, style, and passion for food as a few of the many reasons why she is so beloved by the public, John touched on her ability to inspire in a world dominated by social media.
While acknowledging the many pitfalls of social media, he remarked that without it, "I think the world may have missed out on Chrissy’s full awesomeness."
"She would have never fully shone the way she does if she were filtered by publicists and handlers. Chrissy’s biggest impact may be the way she proves that just by being the person you are, you can make a difference."
"She’s been named the mayor of the Internet by some," he continued. "She’s been blocked by the sh*ttiest person on the Internet. I don’t have to say his name. If you speak up about the things that you believe in, whether it’s immigration rights, postpartum depression, or the joys of chicken pot pie—and if you do it authentically and without presumption, you can enlighten another human being, you can brighten people’s day. What a gift that is. And what a time to do it, right now, when it’s so important to amplify voices of reason, not shut them down."
John teared up as he welcomed his wife to the stage to accept the award, and the pair embraced after he confessed that he is amazed by the woman she's become.
How adorable, right?
After comically snatching the award from her husband's hand, Chrissy said that while she was "ready to be the light-hearted one", she was taken aback by John's tearful speech.
Choking up herself, Chrissy said that although she jokes about it a lot, she "truly has the most incredible husband on the planet."
"You are our everything," she asserted, before thanking her husband for his constant support. "You completely made me a woman. We’ve grown together. Our family’s grown together. Our careers have grown together. This is so sappy, I’m sorry, I hate it. I didn’t cry during our wedding. I hate you John," she jested. "I really do."
Where can I get myself a John, eh?
