Cape Town - Chrissy Teigen and John Legend left Family Feud host Steve Harvey lost for words when they said they "'hooked up" just a few hours after they’d first met. 

The pair got candid about how they met in 2006 on the set of John’s Stereo video shoot, which Chrissy starred in.

"We did the video, and then we had sex. I went to your hotel and there was a . . ." Chrissy revealed before John interrupted, "Uh, wha . . . It's a family show."

The former model was ready to spill the beans after she’d asked Steve if he wanted to "hear it through or not" – but was quickly stopped by her husband who simply said, "We got along very well."

The couple, who’ve been together for 13 years and married for more than five, have two children together, daughter Luna and son Miles.
