Chrissy Teigen met John Legend in 2007 and admitted that it was not love at first sight. They met on the set of his 2007 music video 'Stereo'. "I’m not going to lie. We hooked up. [And then when he went on tour] I left him by himself for a while. The worst thing you can do is try to lock someone like that down early on, then have them think, There's so much more out there. I played it cool for a long time. Never once did I ask, ‘What are we?’ Marriage was never my goal, because I've never been very traditional. I was just happy to be with him" she told Cosmopolitan Magazine.
