If John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are your favourite celebrity couple, you may not want to hear how they were nearly over forever.

But according to Legend, it's a bleak reality we almost had to face.

The 'Love You Now' singer, 38, who started dating Teigen more than a decade ago, has revealed that he once tried to break up with her at a time when he was feeling overwhelmed by work.

"I was really stressed and busy," he told The Guardian.

"I was just like, 'I'd just be happier single right now,' and she was like, 'No'."

Fans everywhere are thankful Teigen's stubborn approach worked and their relationship was back on track within half an hour.

"She pushes me to be funnier," he continued, "not because she's trying to, I think it's just being around her. And to be bolder."

The stars met on the set of Legend's single 'Stereo' in 2007 when the Sports Illustratedmodel was cast as his love interest.

They tied the knot in Lake Como in 2013.

They now have a 16-month-old daughter, Luna.
