From disclosing unglamorous details of giving birth to sharing her stretch marks on Snapchat, Chrissy Teigen has always been open about her personal life. Now, she’s addressing a problem everyone faces: Dealing with a spouse’s exes.

“What’s funny is that I get along with everyone he’s ever been with. I end up really liking them,” Teigen told Cosmpolitan in upcoming December issue. “After I see them, I’ll tell him, ‘Oh, I was on-set with your ex today — it was fun!’ … It was before me, so it’s fine.”

She admits that Legend had a longer list of exes than she expected: “I didn’t know it, but John used to be a notorious modelizer. To me, he was the sweetest teddy bear.”

But the seemingly perfect couple did hit one road bump in their relationship. “Early on in the relationship, I was on tour with him and he’d gotten sick. He was feeling really bummed and stressed out. He was like, ‘I can’t be in a relationship right now.’ That lasted for one day. Literally, a day. I knew it came from a place other than us not working … I always joke, ‘Remember when you tried to break up with me?’ He’s like, ‘Yes, sorry. Big mistake.’”
