John Legend has been named Sexiest Man Alive by PEOPLE.

The EGOT winner graces the cover of the annual issue that has featured the likes of Idris Elba and Dwayne Johnson in previous years.

Of course, Legend’s wife Chrissy Teigen has thoughts and she shared them on social media shortly after the news broke on Tuesday night.

“My secret is out. I have fulfilled my dream of having boned @people’s sexiest man alive!! an honor!!!!!,” she posted along with a photo of the coveted cover.

“I cannot WAIT for people to get mad about John being the sexiest man alive. it’s my new Starbucks holiday cup,” she added.

The outspoken star didn’t stop there. She updated her Twitter bio to read “currently sleeping with people’s sexiest man alive,” and poked fun at her man by sharing a post he made with a throwback photo from 1995 next to a photo of last year’s winner, Idris Elba.

“I was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it’s a lot of pressure…Everyone’s going to be picking me apart to see if I’m sexy enough to hold this title. I’m [also] following Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not nice to me!” he told PEOPLE.
