John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's relationship are such #CoupleGoals so it's hard to imagine a world without them. 

But according to Legend, they nearly weren't #CoupleGoals.

The pair started dating more than a decade ago but it's been revealed that he once tried to break up with her 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’.”

Luckily Teigen's approach worked.

“She pushes me to be funnier,” he says, “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, and they tied the knot in Lake Como in 2013.

All we can say is thank goodness they didn't ever break up!!!!!!!
