John Legend and his model girlfriend Chrissy Teigen apparently are going to get married in Italy. A source, who overheard a conversation between Chrissy and her friends at Wall at W South Beach on Friday night, July 19, told E! News that the couple would tie the knot in Lake Como in September.
One of Chrissy’s friends allegedly said, “Of course I am going to the wedding.” The source added that Lake Como became the pair’s destination because “that’s where they fell in love.” Guests reportedly will stay at Lake Como for four to five days for the wedding.
John and Chrissy started dating in 2007 after meeting on the set of John’s music video. The couple later got engaged in 2011. John’s publicist confirmed at that time that the soul singer popped the question “while vacationing in the Maldives.”
The Sports Illustrated model refused to say where her wedding would take place. However, she told Showbiz Tonight this April that “we’re going to make people trek somewhere.” During an interview with PEOPLE at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami in June, she gushed over details of her wedding plan.
“My cake is very important to me. I’m not a big sweets person, which is why I’m really specific about the cake, which is going to be a really multi-layer cake. It’s layers and layers of crepe and pastry creme in between with raspberry sauce,” the model said. She also revealed that she had chosen a “soft and gorgeous” Vera Wang dress for the wedding.
“I’m excited. I can’t wait for the ceremony. [John] and I have been working and traveling so much that we just let our wedding planner do everything. We’re not neurotic about it. I just want to finally see all of my friends in one area,” she added.
