John Legend has revealed how he fell in love with Chrissy Teigen. During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the All of Me singer gushed about the Sports Illustrated model.

Legend confessed that the 30-year-old model's sense of humor made him fall in love with her. He 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 humour," he added. "We would talk on the phone, and I started to fall in love with how engaging and witty and funny she is."

The 37-year-old singer and Teigen started dating after they met on the set of Legend's 2007 music video Stereo. They got engaged in December 2011, and married in Lake Como, Italy, in 2013. The couple welcomed their first child together on 14 April. 

"And I think that's when I really started to know that this was the kind of person I wanted to be around a lot," Legend said. "Once we started spending more time together between tour stops and all this other stuff, we realised we had such a connection - and then it blossomed into a marriage and a baby."
