Mirror - For some couples, going to visit in-laws can be a terrifying task.
But for John Legend the excitement began by joining the mile high club with his wife Chrissy Teigen, oddly enough.
The couple - who married by Lake Como in Italy last year - got hot and steamy while they were flying first class to Thailand to stay with the Sports Illustrated model's parents.
Chrissy made the racy revelation to the latest US issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.
"We were on our way to Thailand to see my parents, flying commercial first class. We were under a blanket," she confessed.
"We weren't even in one of those pod things. I feel like we should get a trophy for that!"
Chrissy, 28, insists she and John, 35, are comfortable being openly affectionate with one another when they're in public and she says the musician likes it when she wears a dress so he can slide his hands along her thighs. She said: "We're by no means freaky-deaky, but let's just say, we're open to things.
"We're very OK with PDA. When we go to a restaurant, he loves when I wear a dress, so he can do some upper-thigh rubbing."
Chrissy played it cool when they first hooked up after they met on the set of his 2009 single, Stereo, since she didn't want to scare him off and just enjoy their time together.
She confessed: "I'm not going to lie. We hooked up. [When he went on tour] I left him be himself for a while.
"The worst thing you can do is try to lock someone like that down early on, then have them think, 'There's so much more out there.'
"I played it cool for a long time. 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."
John Legend is sneaky a top 10 coolest guy in the world. He's so under the radar that we never really talk about him with the same amount of fervor as guys like Clooney, Leo, JT, and so on, but every time we do hear about him it's always just something cool. Modern day blend of Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye, ivy-league graduate, notorious lady killer, fashion for days, I mean just typing all of this is giving me a totally-non-sexual-but-completely-sexual broner as we speak. You need to be at the top of the cool game to cause something like that, and this story is just more proof that Johnny L is at the mountain peak looking down on the rest of us.
Banging your absolute red hot Sports Illustrated model wife while flying first class to see his inlaws!? Just under a blanket? That's way above my personal level of cool thinking. Like to be honest, the mile high club sounds like the worst club ever to join. I've gone over my hatred/fear of flying (more than once), so there's that aspect of it, but let's say I am actually up in the air with a chance to get my DW in the bathroom at 30,000 feet, I honestly think I'm turning it down. Those bathrooms are tiny as hell, there's always somebody waiting to go next so the chance of secrecy is slim to none, and I know I can't even pee with the knowledge that somebody is waiting outside the door for me to finish, no chance am I getting it up quick enough to get in and out of there if I know that the only thing separating me from a plane full of people is a weird little door with a sliding lock. Sounds like a nightmare all around.
But that's why I'm me and he's John Legend. He goes first class to avoid 85% of the passengers, he hides in plain sight from the rest by saying "fuck a bathroom, I got a blanket", and he turns a seemingly awkward sexual situation in to a high flying fantasy. Not surprising at all, I mean this is the same guy who made a song about having weird bench sex in the middle of a park (usually a thought I reserve for nightmares involving homeless people) in to a top 5 jam to bang to.
Never has a man so aptly lived up to his last name. Don't sleep on this guy, people. He may not show his face much but we can all learn a thing or two from JL. Now on to his wife:
P.S. This is one of my favorite videos of John Legend ever. Quick backstory, basically Russell Brand said some harmless joke about the Jonas Brothers purity rings being stupid and this Jordin Sparks girl decided to share her great insight on the matter. Notice, John doesn't seem to share her thoughts...
