Chrissy Teigen has shared a look at the brand new tattoo she's got in tribute to her husband John Legend, which features lyrics from one of his songs.

Well, we say lyrics, it's not like an entire paragraph of one of his verses or choruses, but two words: 'Ooh Laa'. The words are from Legend's new song, titled 'Ooh Laa', which is about him wanting a cheeky little bit of 'ooh laa'.

The Lip Sync Battle host got the ink done by tattoo artist to the stars, Daniel 'Winter Stone' Stone, who has previous done tatts for Sophie Turner and Lady Gaga.

He shared a black and white photo of the lyrics, which go down Teigen's spine in a squiggly font, on Instagram.

Both Teigen and Legend shared a three-minute-ish video showing her getting the work done, which prominently features the song in question.

"Chrissy inspired this song," Legend wrote in his caption. "This song inspired Chrissy’s new tattoo."

The pair first met on the set of his music video for the song 'Stereo' in 2006, started dating shortly after, and announced their engagement in late 2011, before tying the knot in 2013.

'Ooh Laa' isn't the first song that Legend has dedicated to his other half, as his 2013 smash-hit song 'All of Me' was also written about their relationship.

The couple welcomed a daughter, Luna, in 2016 and a son, Miles, in 2018, but Teigen tragically suffered a stillbirth last year. She shared photos of the difficult moments on social media and opened up about the pain of losing their son, who they named Jack.

"These photos aren’t for anyone but the people who have lived this or are curious enough to wonder what something like this is like. These photos are only for the people who need them," she wrote in an emotional post on Medium.
