John Legend now has an EGOT in his kitty, becoming the youngest person to have the prestigious quartet of awards.

Legend's speech continued: "I think the projects that we have done to get the EGOT have been huge collaborative efforts".

Chrissy Teigen - author, model, empress of Twitter and amateur entomologist - showered her husband with praise and snark on social media.

In case you're wondering what an EGOT is, it stands for Emmy-Grammy-Oscar-Tony and is basically considered the grand slam of modern entertainment awards.

The singer-songwriter has an impressive ten Grammy awards, one Academy Award - won in 2015 for Best Original Song, "Glory", from Selma - one Tony Award - won in 2017 for Best Revival of a Play, Jitney - and now he's added the Emmy to the list.

All genuine happiness aside, she's still Chrissy Teigen, so she continued her celebration of Legend's win the only way she knows how: by playfully roasting him.
