But while she may have all of him now, Legend tells LA Confidential it wasn’t a case of love at first sight for him and his model wife:
“I’m more cautious than that. I wasn’t like, ‘This is the woman I’m going to marry from day one. For me I’m the kind of person who needs to grow into that feeling. It was probably a couple of years in when I could already see us being together forever.”
Over time, the Grammy winner realized he had found his muse:
“The more you know someone, the more you’re inspired by your relationship. I grew up just learning what it means to be in love with somebody… because I had never really been in love before. I guess you have to grow enough to be able to write that song with sincerity and authenticity.”
And for inspiring everyone’s favorite ballad, we all owe Chrissy a big “thank you.” Head to LA Confidential for the rest of his interview.
