American pop singer John Roger Stephens, alias John Legend, has been named as the 2019 People’s sexiest man alive.
The 40-year-old songwriter becomes the 34th person to be awarded the title since its inception in 1984 by People Magazine.
“John Legend — a man so talented he became one of only 15 stars to achieve EGOT status last year — is making history yet again: the 40-year-old singer has now been crowned PEOPLE’S sexiest man alive,” People magazine announced.
EGOT is an abbreviation for Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony and refers to individuals who have bagged all four awards.
The father of two children- aged 3 and 18 months- is married to model and author Chrissy Teigen.
“I was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it’s a lot of pressure,” Legend said about his new feat.
British actor Idris Elba was announced as People’s sexiest man alive last year while Blake Shelton –an American country singer and television personality–won the title in 2017.
