We’re blushing

John Legend is a lucky man! In honor of the singer's 40th birthday, his wife Chrissy Teigen posted not one, not two, but THREE Instagram posts to send well wishes to the “most incredible man.”

“Happy 40th birthday to the most incredible man. The best father, hardest worker, best lover, best friend I could ever imagine,” Teigen wrote in the caption. “Every day I am grateful for how much you love us and how much you both say it and show it. You are one of a kind. I am grateful to your family for creating and raising such a pure, sweet, brilliant man. The world has been blessed by your 40 years on this planet.”

The text was accompanied by a series of photos of Legend with Teigen and their daughter Luna. Teigen wrapped up the post by saying how much she loves her husband and suggesting he already got his gift.

“I love you,” she said. “ I showed you that this morning BOOYAHHHH.” We’re blushing.

Legend seemed to be at a loss for words and, as pointed out by Instagram account Comments By Celebs, the “All of Me” singer only commented back “booyah.” The one liner apparently didn’t sit well with Teigen who clearly pulled out all the stops for her man—you don’t write a paragraph on social media for just anyone. In response, she said she was going to return the lingerie she presumably purchased for the occasion. “Gonna return this la perla,” she replied.

Fortunately for Legend, Teigen clearly didn’t stay fake mad for too long and posted two more galleries to Instagram. The next one was exclusively a series of Legend with their son Miles, which the model captioned, “carousel for miles and daddy! #happy40.”

The next set of photos was just of the happy couple showing off some of their cutest moments. In the caption, Teigen wrote, “love you for 40 more and into eternity,” alongside a heart emoji.

Like the gentleman he is, Legend took to his own page to thank everyone for his birthday wishes. He reflected on his 40th year professionally and personally.

“Thank you all for the birthday wishes today,” he wrote. “It's been a wonderful year, and I feel so grateful for all 40 years of my life. This year has been especially awesome. I love my growing family. Luna is so special and I love being her father and watching her personality blossom. We welcomed Miles to this world and I see so much of myself in him and can't wait to see who he becomes.”

He naturally gave a special shout-out to his wife as well. “Chrissy is the superstar I always knew her to be,” he said. “I'm happy that more and more people around the world are realizing this too.”
