Chrissy Teigen is known for her hilarious tweets — which are often at the expense of her husband, John Legend.

Legend, 40, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, where host Ellen DeGeneres asked Legend if Teigen ever ran her funny tweets by him first.

“She runs some tweets by me, but she never runs the ones when she’s talking about me,” Legend revealed, laughing.

“We’re next to each other on the couch, and she’ll have this devilish look on her face like she’s conniving some kind of devious plan, and then the tweet will go out,” he said. “And I just look at her like, ‘Hahaha that’s funny.’ ”

Teigen’s tweets often poke fun at her musician husband of five years. “John let me borrow his second phone and not one mistress has written haha what a looooooooser,” one funny tweet from 2014 reads. Another jokes, “I like to send john nudes and say ‘sorry wrong person.’ ”

Legend and Teigen, 33, share two children: daughter Luna, 2½, and son Miles, 9 months.

“It’s funny because he looks more like me as an adult than he looks like me as a baby,” Legend laughed after DeGeneres shared a photo of baby Miles. “Like, he’s me.”

Teigen previously commented on how baby Miles is already the spitting image of his father ahead of the singer’s birthday bash last month, while asking her followers for help deciding which color tuxedo jacket Miles should wear to the James Bond-themed party.

“Okay guys. Throwing john’s 40th birthday party tonight but need your help dressing mini-john. Which one!” Teigen wrote alongside two adorable snaps of Miles wearing two different baby tuxedos.

“They get along pretty well,” Legend told DeGeneres of Luna and Miles’ sibling relationship. “When Luna gets jealous, she doesn’t take it out on Miles. She just wants our attention more, so she’ll just make more noise and when I’m holding Miles, she’ll say, ‘Daddy, hold me! Hold me too! Hold me too!’ ”

“And then she laughs because she thinks it’s so funny,” he added. “She’s like, ‘You’re holding two babies! Haha!’ ”
