John Legend Engaged To Chrissy Teigen

Singer popped the question during a vacation in the Maldives.

[artist id="1784962"]John Legend[/artist] is officially off the market. The singer asked his girlfriend, Chrissy Teigen, to marry him over the holidays.

The couple confirmed the news in a statement to People. "John Legend and his girlfriend, model Chrissy Teigen, got engaged over the holidays while vacationing in the Maldives," a rep confirmed.

People reports that while little else is known about how they celebrated the good news, Legend will be in Las Vegas this weekend performing at the Pearl at the Palms on New Year's Eve.

"We validate or shut down whatever each of us is doing," Legend told People in May about how the pair help style one another. "[It's] all of the time. We were together when we picked out our clothes today. She's better [at it]. It's harder to dress a woman — there are so many options and accessories. For guys we only have so many elements."

The couple began dating in 2007. Teigen is best known for her work as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. It's a big week for Legend, who will also celebrate his birthday Wednesday.

Legend and Teigen weren't the only pair who got engaged over the holidays: Matthew McConaughey popped the question to his model girlfriend, Camila Alves, on Christmas Day. He took to Twitter to share the good news. "Just asked camila to marry me, merry Christmas," he tweeted, also posting a photo of him and Alves kissing next to Christmas decorations.
