In their 13 years together, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have both celebrated a number of individual accomplishments. This year alone, Legend became a coach on The Voice and earned the title of People's Sexiest Man Alive, while Teigen joined NBC's new competition series Bring the Funny as a judge and launched a cooking website based on her cookbooks. But the two are perhaps most loved as a singular unit. They have two very cute kids together. They're politically engaged. They troll each other on social media as often as possible — much to the rest of the internet's delight. As a celebrity couple, they are truly the gift that never stops giving.
That being said, 13 years is a quite a long time — especially by Hollywood standards. And their entrance into the public lexicon as Everyone's Favorite Celebrity Couple arguably didn't start until they joined (and became active users on) Twitter, which for Legend was in 2008 and for Teigen was 2009. It's possible, then, that even the biggest Legend and Teigen stans don't know the origins of their relationship — or all of the milestones they've hit over their last decade. So, now seems like as good a time as any to review.
