Best Wife Ever Chrissy Teigen Throws John Legend a Sparkly Birthday Bash

John Legend turned 40 in December 2018, and Chrissy Teigen has the celebrations on lock. She'd wished John a happy birthday on Instagram on the day of his actual birthday with some sweet, lovey-dovey photos. But she made sure that the official celebrations for Legend's birthday had significantly more sparkle.

John Legend turned 40 in late December 2018, and Chrissy Teigen has the celebrations on lock. She'd wished John a happy birthday on Instagram on the day of his actual birthday with some sweet, lovey-dovey photos (opens in new tab). But that wasn't all that the mom-model-author-cook had in store for her husband. Chrissy loooooves to entertain, and she made sure that the official celebrations for Legend's birthday had significantly more sparkle (opens in new tab).

Chrissy didn't snap photos of the bash itself—at least not yet—so we don't know if she cooked, or if it was a family-only affair or something bigger. She gave us just enough hints to get excited and make me really jealous I wasn't invited.

She needed help dressing "mini-John" (a.k.a. Miles) and even hilariously put it up to a vote (opens in new tab). The white tux won, because it looked particularly adorable. He really does look JUST like his dad.

On her Instagram Stories (opens in new tab), Chrissy also shared photos of her in a gorgeous gold Cristina Ottaviano dress (just LOOK at that chunky necklace):

And little Luna in a white, ballerina tutu. "My Misty!" Chrissy croons at her daughter as Luna dances around (that's Misty Copeland, FYI, who is apparently Luna's hero (opens in new tab)).

Oh and, amidst all this glamour, Chrissy confided that her thigh/butt hives (opens in new tab) are also getting better (opens in new tab). In case we were curious.
