Newlywed, song muse, red carpet siren — we’re guessing Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Issue cover model Chrissy Teigen knows a little something about romance.

Her husband John Legend gave a glimpse into what probably goes down at the Teigen-Legend house with his hot Grammys performance of “All of Me” (a love ballad he wrote and performed for his bride at their September wedding in Lake Como, Italy). Yes, they’re kind of adorable.

To spread a little Valentine’s Day love, Teigen shared her top holiday tips with PEOPLE. (For more details, stay tuned to her hilarious Twitter — from the looks of it, we’re guessing there’s going to be a Vermont Teddy Bear involved on Friday.)

Though she had us at “chocolate.”

Chrissy Teigen’s Valentine’s Day Dos and Don’ts


Start the morning off right. Don’t just wait until dinner to start getting your Valentine’s Day on! Take that how you’d like.

Be cheesy. I like cheesy. Flowers. Chocolates. Candlelit dinner. The entire day is cheeseball. Just go with it.

Refrain from social media. No Twitter, no emails, no cell phones. Just you two tonight! (I know, look who’s talking.)

Let him or her know how you feel, and how special they are to you. Even if you are the kind of couple who think of it as a “Hallmark holiday” (which it totally is), it’s still a wonderful thing to do.


Just sign the card. Write something meaningful! Hell, skip the card and go for the handwritten note. D’awww.

Overspend. It’s more of a “Thanksgiving” than a gifty “Christmas.” Give thanks and acknowledgement of the love in your life!

Dread it if you’re single! Some of my best Valentine’s Days have been “Galentine’s” Days. No offense, Johnny!

This is an old picture of her.

She is NOT Pretty or Smart. Why is she Relevant?

The joy of being single on Vday……no disappointments, no expectations, no one to annoy you and no one to love. Boo hoo. To be alone and content is hopeful and blissful. To be lonely in a marriage is pure misery. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!!

Chrissy is absolutely beautiful and I love her personality. She’s sarcastic, so if you understand sarcasm she is hilarious. She is also a great cook and is always herself. I love her!!

Marcia on

I don’t get her.

Amanda G. on

She’s such a sweetie!
Pleeeease, have kids soon. They are going to be so adorable!!! I love both her and John.

She is a classy lady. Those with nasty comments are clearly just jealous. She is successful, funny, smart and has a sexy husband and some people cannot stand it. I personally rather enjoy her candor and think she is stunning!

I think John Legend is very talented, but I have a hard time seeing Chrissy as anything more than his trophy wife. She always comes across as immature and vapid. I have nothing against models, and some of them are smart, savvy businesswomen. But Chrissy isn’t one of them. She’s just trying to milk her marriage to John for her 15 minutes of fame. And she’s certainly not qualified to give romance advice. I wish she’d step out of the spotlight for a bit.

Geez, people, are all of you in that bad of a mood, who of you does she have to be pretty for? And what does she need to know anything for? Is it really that hard to happy for someone? I am pretty certain she is much prettier than most who has bashed her on this blog, just don’t read the darn article.

Shes just not attractive… no jealousy here…just dont find her attractive at all

Guest on

No, no one is jealous of her. Her sense of “humor” comes across as rude and makes her sound stuck up. She is not classy at all, especially broadcasting to all when not wearing underwear. It seems she pays the press to add the word “model” in front of everything describing her. It can’t just be wife of John Legend. Has to be the “model” wife etc. How shallow can she be? Every time I see her in the press I cringe. Opening her mouth makes her sound more self serving and brainless than she already is!! I don’t see this marriage lasting – so she can keep her love advice !!

I have a do for this attention seeking slore who cannot seem to shut her yap. Stop cussing like a sailor, it shows you have very little class! Check her twitter feed and see for yourself
