What Keeps Chrissy Teigen and John Legend at Home on Monday Nights
It’s an age-old debate among couples: to go out or not to go out? In John Legend and Chrissy Teigen‘s house, though, that’s never a question on Monday nights. The married couple of four years have a very special tradition for the start of the work week.
“John really loves going out to dinner, but I’m a homebody. I like to cook and watch bad TV,” Teigen, who announced her second pregnancy in November 2017, tells Brit + Co. “He’ll never pass up an opportunity if I’m like, ‘Let’s go out to dinner.’ He just gets so excited.”
With every rule, there is an exception. “He’s a homebody on Monday,” Teigen shares. “He likes Vanderpump Rules. That’s our night: Vanderpump Rules and Summer House.”
When they do make it out, Teigen, who shares Luna, one, with Legend, opts for a pregnancy body-flaunting ensemble. “Right now, my go-to is a long robe and a Wolford Fatal Dress,” she says, adding that her bump is her favorite part of being pregnant (“I love not having to suck it in.”). Her comfy-meets-sexy choices aren’t exactly what her husband prefers, however. “He likes leg. And to touch a back,” she shares. “But at this point, he’s just happy to go on dates.”
Finding one-on-one time might get even harder, as Teigen just added another line to her resume. The Sports IllustratedSwim model slash Lip Sync Battle host slash Cravings cookbook author joins Pampers as their creative consultant for the brand’s new Pampers Pure Collection, a gig she calls a natural fit. “There were so many things that didn’t feel right until Pampers because, for us, we use it,” she shares. “It makes things so much easier when you already know and love a product. You don’t have to lie every day about using, like, a waist trainer. If it were anything else, I’d feel like I was shilling it.”
As creative consultant, she’ll collaborate with designers (she’s partial to the llama print), R&D, and marketing. “I love being involved with products that I love and know and trust,” she says. “That is truly is the dream of mine, to be able to enjoy work every day.”
