Model Chrissy Teigen is due to be one hot mamma to one cool child with John Legend. Her pregnancy, however, has attracted a broad range of pregnancy stories. One in particular was from popular gossip magazine, OK!

Ever the charmer, an "insider"-slash-"source" told OK! lots and lots of stories about the kind things Legend is doing for his pregnant wife. While it's impossible to doubt the niceness of Legend — he even has a nice face — OK!'s sources claims were definitely overkill on the niceness.

The piece claims the following about John's acts of kindness for Chrissy:

  • He paints her toenails.
  • He's taking cooking classes.
  • He writes love notes for her.
  • He bought her the most expensive pregnancy down pillows ever.
  • He does yoga stretches with her.
  • He even joins her on the exercise ball.
The piece ends with the writer asking if John's actions were "too much." Teigen later acknowledged the piece on Twitter with her signature humor, saying "Literally every word of this is made up but I enjoyed the story time." A good reminder to us all to take everything with a grain of salt.
