He’s one of the most soulful singers of his generation and John Legend has plenty to croon about thanks to his wife Chrissy Teigen.

During his Valentine’s Day performance on “Good Morning America” today (February 14), the handsome hitmaker chatted about Teigen’s reaction to learning she’s one of the new cover girls for the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue along with Lily Aldridge and Nina Agdal.

Legend noted, "She cried like a baby. She was so excited. You know, it was a surprise, because you never really know who's going to be on the cover. There are all these beautiful women."

"She's been in the issue for several years now, and every year, it's been someone else. And this year it's her. We're very excited about it,” John added.

Meanwhile, Chrissy tweeted her bliss shortly after learning the news- "I mean, what else is there to say? I just cannot believe it. What an honor. Never, ever, ever have [I] felt this kind of pure joy. Crazy crazy."
