Despite how things may look on social media and in the public eye, no couple has a perfect relationship 鈥 not even celebrity couples. Kristen Bell recently revealed that Dax Shepard once dumped her for another woman before coming to his senses (phew!), and Blake Lively will be the first to admit that her marriage to hubby Ryan Reynolds is far from a Disney flick, saying, 鈥淚 love my husband all of the time. But I don鈥檛 feel butterflies and rainbows all the time.鈥

Now, John Legend is opening up about the fact that he and Chrissy Teigen, too, once narrowly escaped a breakup, no doubt thanks to his wife鈥檚 hilarious response.

In an interview with The Guardian, Luna鈥檚 dad reveals he once tried to end things with his partner of nearly a decade 鈥斅爋nly Teigen wasn鈥檛 exactly having it. 鈥淚 was really stressed and busy,鈥 he says of his state of mind at the time. 鈥淚 was just like, 鈥業鈥檇 just be happier single right now.鈥欌 Oof!

His now 31-year-old wife, however, wasn鈥檛 too worried, or if she was, she certainly didn鈥檛 show it. 鈥溾橲he was like, 鈥榥o.鈥欌 Oh. Em. Gee!

Girl鈥檚 assertiveness paid off: As Legend recalls, the couple was 鈥渄ating again鈥 less than an hour later.

The model shared her own version of the story with Cosmopolitan back in 2016, saying, 鈥淭hat lasted for one day. Literally one day. He was like, 鈥業 can鈥檛 be in a relationship right now鈥 Remember when you tried to break up with me?鈥 she asked him, to which he replied, 鈥淵es. Big mistake.鈥

While she admitted to the outlet that they still have their fights from time to time (鈥淲e fought a lot more when I wasn鈥檛 working as much. I was the one left at home and worried about him going to after-parties. He would be tagged in photos and I would be like, 鈥榃ho is that girl? Just jealous. But then, he doesn鈥檛 even like those parties that much鈥), it appears to be pretty smooth sailing these days between the longtime lovebirds.

Thank goodness: How ELSE would we troll adorable tribute posts, like this one the Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award-winner posted just four days ago proclaiming of his wife, 鈥淣o filter necessary? Awww!
