John Legend locked down his relationship with model Chrissy Teigen this week, proposing to her in the Maldives. After dating for four years, the two are now engaged. Just about everyone is familiar with Legend’s work, but Teigen might require some introduction. She’s a model, best known for her pictorial in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Needless to say, Legend has done well for himself. Not that we’d expect any less from a nine-time Grammy winner. Here’s a gallery of some of Teigen’s best pictures to give you an idea of what he’s working with.
Born in Utah, Teigen is of Thai and Norwegian ancestry.
She appeared in the SI Swimsuit Issue in 2010.
Despite frequently being photographed in a bikini, Teigen has said that she's terrified of swimming.
Teigen previously appeared on Deal or No Deal as one of those models holding the briefcases.
She is friends with fellow model Brooklyn Decker.
Teigen, a big foodie, maintains a blog where she frequently writes about her culinary experiences.
Among the dishes she has posted: bacon stuffed chicken breast, deep-fried turkey and catfish. Gotta love a woman with taste.
We love her for other reasons, too.
Teigen is a dog lover and often posts pictures of her canine friends on Twitter.
She also posts pictures like this one.
