Chrissy Teigen reveals the 'number one reason' why she'll never divorce John Legend
They're the modern definition of couple goals and by the sounds of it, we don't have to imagine a world where Chrissy Teigen and John Legend aren't always in our lives.
The couple have been married for four years, but together for 11, and Teigen said there is no way they will be splitting up after already overcoming obstacles like IVF treatments and postpartum depression. The Sports Illustrated model (31) has been vocal about her struggle with depression after giving birth to their first daughter Luna (16 months) and said she hopes to expand their brood with her "beautiful person", adding: "He’s just everything."
Although he admits to now-famously breaking up for one day a few years into their relationship, they seem pretty rock solid. "I told him the number one reason we are not getting divorced is because I refuse to see another woman with my baby," she joked to Us Weekly.
In the interview, the social media superstar and cookbook author praised her long-term love for being so supportive during their toughest moments. "I got very, very lucky," she said.
"I don’t know who else could put up with all the **-t we are constantly dealing with. Kids, friends and work are hard, but John is the easiest part of everything."
And she spoke candidly about her experience and eventual diagnosis of postpartum depression.
"I lost all interest in everything. I couldn’t get out of bed. I kept all my pajamas in the pantry because I didn’t want to go upstairs," she explained.
"I think the key for us was finally understanding what was happening and getting help. Sitting with John, our doctor pulled out this book and was like, ‘Do you have these feelings? Would you be happier tomorrow if you didn’t wake up?' And yes, I probably would be. That’s a big deal. I didn’t realize how bad it was until I was out of it."
Earlier this year, Oscar-winner Legend also touched on Teigen's depression, telling Buzzfeed: "It's tough. You see someone's mood decline and then stay in a darker place for a while and it's a challenge for you. ou don't know if it's you, if it's something you did wrong, or what you can do to help."
But he said that by seeing professionals and learning how depression works he was able to provide better support to his wife.
"You know it's not your fault, it's not your wife's fault – she didn't do anything wrong to make her feel this way, it's sometimes just how your body works," he added. "You just have to help each other, support each other, and you'll get through it."
