John Legend has reflected on his marriage to Chrissy Teigen, ahead of their ninth anniversary next week.

Heart host Jamie Theakston pointed out that John and Chrissy were recently on holiday in Lake Como, Italy, the venue for their wedding nine years ago.

“I think it’s good to fall in love with someone you really respect and like, and enjoy being around.”

“Someone you trust, and someone who will be great as a partner, who will raise children, and I’ve found that person, and we’re good!”

The couple are parents to Luna, six, and Miles, four. Two years ago, they lost their son Jack, through Chrissy’s pregnancy.

John said they were “very excited” about the new arrival and tentatively revealed that the baby will be expected “early next year.”
