Singer John Legend has revealed that airport officials almost destroyed his planned surprise proposal to model Chrissy Teigen which took place in 2011. He says that while making their way to The Maldives for a romantic getaway, airport security in Sri Lanka searched through his luggage and almost opened the box right in front of her. He admits he was already very nervous about doing it right:
“When I proposed I was excited and a little nervous about doing it right. I spent my time on the ring and I was ready to do it when we went on vacation in the Maldives.”
He says his romantic plan was almost foiled by the guards but luckily he got passed it and didn’t have to propose in their airport. He admits that keeping it all a secret was the hardest part of the process:
“The most difficult thing was hiding the ring. When we were going through airport security in Sri Lanka, the officials were poking around my bag and almost asked to look inside the box where the ring was, as Chrissy was standing right next to me. Luckily, they had a change of heart. Who knows, if they had opened the box then, I’d be telling the story of how I proposed to her in Colombo airport.”
The couple are now planning to marry later this year!
