It's that time of year where People magazine crowns their "sexiest man alive." The title has been awarded to the likes of Chris Hemsworth, David Beckham, Idris Elba, and Johnny Depp in the past and now the time has come to pass on the crown to another a-lister.
And it seems the lucky man is the singing sensation, John Legend. The announcement of his new title was made yesterday, and he seems to be pretty proud of his achievement. However, Legend's wife, Chrissy Teigen stole the show with her hilarious response to the announcement.
But another celebrity has also had something to say about Legend's win. Read on for Wendy Williams' brutal shade.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are Hollywood's sweethearts.
Their romance began in 2007.
via: Getty ImagesTeigen and Legend first met on the set of Legend’s 2007 music video for “Stereo," where Teigen starred as the singer's love interest. The model, author, and TV personality later revealed that when the shoot was over, the pair went back to Legend’s hotel room, ate at In-N-Out, and hooked up. “We did the music video, we were together for like 12 hours," she told Wendy Williams in 2014. “We spent the entire day together, me in my underwear and him in a full suit, and I went to go say goodbye to him, to his hotel and we didn’t ever say goodbye that night."
But, the pair didn't make it official until months after their music video fling.

Never once did I ask, ‘What are we?’ Marriage was never my goal because I’ve never been very traditional. I was just happy to be with him," Teigen explained to Cosmopolitan in 2014.
While Legend was on the road, the couple talked and texted.

Although the pair had a mini-break up during this time... that lasted a day. “He was feeling really bummed and stressed out [on tour]. He was like, ‘I can’t be in a relationship right now.’ That lasted for one day. Literally, a day. I knew it came from a place other than us not working."
After fiery beginnings, the couple settled down with one of many trips to Italy.
After 4 years of dating, Legend got down on one knee.

But luckily, everything turned out fine in the end.explained. “There was no big grand speech or anything. I think it was just very lovely and sweet."
The pair got hitched on September 14, 2013, in Lake Como.E! News. “We are dumb and didn’t realize that our Italian wedding would not be recognized unless we had a real ceremony in New York City. So Irina Shayk was our witness - the most beautiful woman on earth!"
The couple share 2 children together.
The pair have since cemented themselves as a firm Hollywood power couple.
All in all, they are truly relationship goals.
They even took part in Vanity Fair's lie detector test.
via: YouTubeThe YouTube video, which runs for a whopping twenty-five minutes, sees the couple answer a number of home truths about their relationship while hooked up to a polygraph machine. From prenups to crushes, they well and truly dish the dirt - making for a rather entertaining spectacle.
In true Teigen style, she was brutally honest throughout.
via: YouTubeLegend asked her if she still found other men attractive. In response, Teigen admitted that yes, of course, she still finds other guys attractive. It's natural. Legend then pulled out pictures of celebrities to get his wife’s take on their attractiveness. We love!
Chrissy has also been known to share hilarious moments between the pair.
And don't even get me started on when she shared this "heartfelt" post dedicated to her husband.
But Chrissy has added yet another notch in her belt with this iconic moment.
The announcement was made on Tuesday night.Already a well-accomplished musician, it seems he's added another string to his bow... it's an impressive achievement.
