Singer John Legend was named 2019’s Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine on 12 November, while serving as a judge on the TV show The Voice.
Legend, 40, was introduced as the new titleholder by 2017’s Sexiest Man Alive, Blake Shelton, 43.
Chrissy Teigen promptly gushed about her husband’s success on Twitter, following People labelling Legend the sexiest man alive.

The singer has told the magazine he was thrilled to receive such a title.
"I was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it’s a lot of pressure', he told People magazine. "Everyone’s going to be picking me apart to see if I’m sexy enough to hold this title. I’m [also] following Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not nice to me!"
1995 John would be very perplexed to be following 2018 @IdrisElba as #SexiestManAlive. Hell, 2019 John is about as equally perplexed but thank you @People for finding me sexy. I'll take it 🤓 pic.twitter.com/Gw1la5Ebv4— John Legend (@johnlegend) November 13, 2019
Teigen has made more jokes about being married to "the sexiest man" on the planet. She even updated the bio in her Twitter account which now says "de-motivational speaker currently sleeping with people's sexiest man alive".
