I was ready to just sign a piece of paper. But when it actually happened and I was up there, I started crying, of course.”
5. Chrissy Teigen Said She Will Never Leave Legend
Over the years, the couple has had their ups and downs, even combating cheating rumors, but Teigen told Us Weekly she will never leave her husband. She explained that, “I don’t know who else could put up with all the shit we are constantly dealing with … I told him the No. 1 reason we are not getting divorced is because I refuse to see another woman with my baby.”
