Chrissy Teigen & John Legend's Valentine's Day Video Wins The Holiday, Hands Down
There are some couples whose love seems impossibly perfect, who embody #relationshipgoals on a daily basis, and who encourage the world to believe that there truly is someone out there for everyone. And one such couple has to be Chrissy Teigen and John Legend. From their incredible wedding to the birth of their daughter Luna, the couple have always had an enviable relationship and both seem like genuinely nice people too. So it shouldn't come as much surprise that Teigen and Legend's Valentine's Day video is a hands-down winner that perfectly captures everything you love about their relationship. If you didn't already, prepare to want what they have.
Released on the holiday, the couple star in an extra special video for LOVE Magazine. Throughout it, Teigen wears beautiful lingerie and heart-shaped sunglasses, changing her outfits regularly, color co-ordinating herself with the hearts that float across the screen. Legend watches as his wife serenades him with his classic song "Ordinary People," which has never seemed more appropriate than now.
Considering they're in a committed marriage, publicly supporting each other, and raising their family, the lyrics of "Ordinary People" feel as though they're about Teigen and Legend's relationship, even though the song was recorded in 2004 and the couple didn't meet until 2007.

Since "Ordinary People," Legend has taken the opportunity to write about his wife and dedicated 2013's "All Of Me" to her. Since he's had the chance to serenade her in his music videos, it's so apt that, on Valentine's Day, Teigen gets to serenade her husband. Miming the lyrics of "Ordinary People," Teigen owns the spotlight, and the couple's chemistry is amazing, especially when the model sings the words directly at the person who wrote them.
In hindsight, Legend's "Ordinary People" feels like a premonition, a prediction of the future relationship the singer would go on to have with Teigen. Which is why it's so satisfying to watch Teigen serenading Legend. With lyrics like, "This ain't the honeymoon, we're passed the infatuation phase," it's obvious that these two are in it for the long haul.
