I hope Chrissy knows she and John are literally never allowed to split.

Just like the rest of us, celebrities across the world are currently self-isolating due to the coronavirus crisis.

And of course, they've all been keeping their followers and fans up to date with their quarantine activities through regular social media posts.

It's safe to say that some are coping better than others, but that's a story for another day.

But I think it's clear that by far the most entertaining celebrity duo during this period so far has been Chrissy Teigen and John Legend.

Over the last couple of weeks, they've kept us thoroughly entertained, doing everything from dragging Ivanka Trump, sharing graphic tweets about childbirth, and using toy cars to exchange banana bread for lettuce with strangers in parking lots.

And at the weekend, Chrissy and John took the entertainment up a notch by staging a wedding for their 3-year-old daughter's stuffed animals.

That's right. They livestreamed Chloe and Nosh tying the knot, with Chrissy officiating proceedings and John providing the musical entertainment.


By request, John performed a slowed-down version of "Hands to Myself" by Selena Gomez.

There was even a two-tier chocolate wedding cake!

Of course, many publications noticed the nuptials and covered the story. One such publication was PopSugar, which shared the details of the wedding on its Instagram page.

"Can't believe we're typing this, but John Legend covered Selena Gomez at a stuffed animal wedding. Tap the link in the bio to watch him sing at the 'ceremony,'" it wrote in the caption of the post.

However, the wording of the post put the fear of god into one fan, who left a comment saying she'd thought the caption was leading up to a split announcement.


"Popsugar, don't you EVER DARE AGAIN post a photo of John and Chrissy and write 'can't believe we're typing this...' I THOUGHT THEY WERE BREAKING UP. MY HEART LEPT OUT OF MY CHEST. I CANNOT HANDLE THAT ANXIETY RIGHT NOW," wrote the fan.


I mean, same.

Well, when Chrissy saw the comment she couldn't help but respond with a perfect joke implying that quarantine might actually drive her and John to divorce.

"Oh we are also def breaking up after we can leave the house," she wrote in reply.

Of course, people thought the joke was hilarious and flooded the replies to thank Chrissy for the much needed laugh.

But as entertaining as the joke was, I just hope Chrissy knows she and John are the one celeb couple who are never, ever allowed to divorce. Sorry but it's the law, I don't make the rules.
