Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are all sorts of relationship goals.

Whether they're dominating the red carpet at an awards' show,

Helping each other pursue their dreams,

Or just eating pizza together in bed,

... They continue to restore our faith in true love.

That being said, it's kind of hard to picture them ever breaking up with each other — but in a new interview with The Guardian, John revealed that he tried to do exactly that about ten years ago (key word being "tried).

“I was really stressed and busy,” the 38-year-old Grammy-winner explained. “I was just like: ‘I’d just be happier single right now,’ and she was like: ‘No.’ ” 

Less than a half hour later, they were dating again!

“She pushes me to be funnier,” John continued, “not because she’s trying to, I think it’s just being around her. And to be bolder.” Aww!

Chrissy found John's confession to be pretty amusing, taking to Twitter on Monday night to remind everyone that they've been together for 11 years so far.

The 31-year-old model later gave her side of the story in a second tweet, saying "it wasn't a a typical breakup." 

"He was on tour and his voice hurt and he was being a whiny face about everything and so yeah, I was like 'no,' " she said.

People on Twitter found Chrissy's response both hilarious and kind of savage.

Good thing Chrissy put her foot down when she did, because we couldn't imagine life (or Twitter, for that matter) without this crazy couple.
