When it comes to family vacations, John Legend isn’t leaving anything to chance. With Chrissy Teigen, his wife, Legend has made Italy the perfect getaway spot. Aren’t we all a little bit envious?
While we were all about barbecues and fireworks for Independence Day, John Legend and his family were enjoying glorious scenes on the Italian coast. And if you think that they were basking on a beach somewhere, think again.
Sailing on Italian Waters
With their two kids, the couple was sailing on Italian waters, exploiting their yacht experience to the fullest. The family’s adventure kicked off at Portofino, the little fishing village popular with tourists around the world.
Knowing Teigen, she didn’t fail to share her experiences with her fans and soon enough, pictures of their exploits surfaced online, via her Instagram account. Although both the model and her husband looked stunning, their kids were the ones who really stole the show, sitting pretty like the little bundles of cuteness that they actually are.
Miles, the younger one of the couple’s kids, appeared on both of his parents’ pages, with Legend uploading a picture of him with the hugest smile on his face. Naturally, his fans were all over the image which garnered a fair share of likes.
In an act of playful banter, the kid’s mom shared the exact image, acknowledging that although her husband had already shared the picture, she has more IG followers, so she had to regram it.
Vacationing in Italy means that there’ll be plenty of fancy food around, and for the Legend family it was almost always all about pizza and ice cream. When it comes to wine, however, Legend seemed to trust his own brand more, bringing with him his own stash of the finest bottles, and quite a few of them actually, just to be on the safe side.
After spending some quality family time, the singer and his model wife transformed their family vacay into a double date to die for. The couple had Jen Atkin and Mike Rosenthal join them for the remainder of their trip, with the adventure taking them to Porto Venere, Elba, and Porto Azzurro.
Just like John Legend brought his own wine for the trip, Chrissy tagged, Atkin, a renowned celebrity hairdresser, along as well in case she needed her hair touched up after a long swim. Now we know Teigen’s secret to being camera-ready at all times.
Life at the high seas was definitely enjoyable for the two couples, but they also managed to get to the mainland every single day. One can’t be in Italy and not enjoy the country’s culture now, can they? The historic coastal towns are a hub of knowledge, and Legend and co. ensured that they learned as much as they could, while also having fun, of course.
This summer alone, John Legend has had his family out to Italy twice now. Tuscany was their destination the first time around before he decided to go all in with a yacht trip. The family is already back State-side, but there’s been talk of a third trip in the offing.
Could they be headed back to Lake Como? They could pay a visit to George and Amal Clooney while at it. They must be friends, no? Either way, they got married here, and Teigen has always described it as a perfect place. They’ll most definitely be back!
