The model took to her Instagram page and shared photos of Legend and their family, adding a sweet message that took a very Teigen-esque turn at the end.

"You are one of a kind. I am grateful to your family for creating and raising such a pure, sweet, brilliant man. The world has been blessed by your 40 years on this planet. I love you," Teigen added, then quipping, "I showed you that this morning BOOYAHHHH."

Teigen also shared the post to her Twitter page as well, prompting many of her followers to also wish Legend a Happy Birthday.

Many of Legend's celebrity friends have also been wishing him a happy birthday on social media, with Ellen DeGeneres being one who has sent out well-wishings to the singer.

"Happy birthday, [John Legend]! Love, Ellen Superstar," the TV host joked.

Legend's birthday comes just one day after it was announced that he will be participating in a GRAMMY sponsored celebration of the life and music of Aretha Franklin.


Other stars who will join him include Yolanda Adams, Shirley Caesar, Alessia Cara, Kelly Clarkson, Common, Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Patti LaBelle, and BeBe Winans.

Aretha! A GRAMMY Celebration For The Queen Of Soul will be hosted by Tyler Perry, and will be taped on Jan. 13. It is scheduled to air some time in 2019, though no specific date has been announced as of yet.
