Could they be any cuter? Chrissy Teigen couldn’t be more proud of hubby John Legend. The couple attended the 2017 Tony Awards at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, June 11, where the multi-talented musician won an award for his work on Broadway’s Jitney—and Teigen was first to offer her congratulations.

“John won a Tony!!! He has a GOT!” the model, 31, tweeted, referring to Legend’s previous Grammy and Oscar wins. He now only needs an Emmy to achieve EGOT status.

The lovebirds—who have been married since September 2013—beamed on the red carpet before the annual event. Teigen wore a white, strapless gown with gold geometric accents, and Legend, 38, opted for a classic black tux and dark purple bow tie.

The pair may have been all business on the red carpet, but Teigen joked ahead of the show about her reason for visiting the city. “I am in New York for the Tony’s because I am a famous broadway actress and it makes sense,” she wrote on Twitter.

After arriving at the venue, the model tweeted, “Why has my seat recently been sat in? As one of Broadway’s biggest stars on Broadway’s biggest nights I am appalled.”

This isn’t the first awards show the adorable duo have attended this year. In January, Teigen accompanied her handsome hubby to the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and in February they attended the Oscars.

The couple’s love has only grown since they welcomed their first child, Luna, in April 2016. “[Parenting] advances the level of partnership you share,” Legend told People earlier this year. “It’s exciting to see how we as a couple grow together and learn how to react to the challenges and the joys.”
