Love at first sight? More like lust at first sight. John Legend got very candid about meeting his wife Chrissy Teigen.

The pair met on the set of the 40-year-old singer’s shoot for his ‘Stereo’ music video. His model wife appeared in the video back in 2006 to play his love interest.

In an interview with Access Live Opens a New Window, Legend said of that time:

“It was at least lust at first sight for both of us and then, you know, obviously it developed in that day and that moment. We had instant chemistry that day and then we started dating not long after that and here we are, married with two kids.”

Legend continued: “I don’t know what counts as our first date because we hung out that day and night, and then hung out. That’s as the kids say,” the crooner said. “And then we started going on trips together not long after that because we didn’t really live in the same city. I was living mainly in New York, she was mainly living in L.A. and so we would just meet.”

While the couple “hung out” with no strings attached since then, the only started dating in 2007. Legend went on to reveal that they eventually fell in love on their first trip to Italy.

“She would come meet me out on the road. We would go on little trips together. We went to, like, Mexico. We went to Italy. I’d say that the time we fell in love was our first trip to Italy and so we ended up getting married there, and we go back there almost every year. … Italy is, like, our love spot.”

Now, Legend and Teigen are happily married since 2013 and are parents to daughter Luna and son Miles.
