Los Angeles: Singer John Legend says his wife, Chrissy Teigen makes him gain weight because she is currently developing her first cookbook.

The ‘All of Me’ hitmaker says he puts on five pounds every time he goes home, thanks to his 29-year-old model wife.

"When she's working on it and I'm home I gain five pounds guaranteed. So, I'm like, sometimes I need to travel so I can lose weight," the 36-year-old singer told people.com.

Asked about her best creations, he said: "It's kind of like when people do those artichoke dips but it's got buffalo chicken and cheese and all these other things in it, too. It's really, really delicious. Chrissy is obviously a great cook."

The couple, who got married in Italy in 2013, enjoy hosting lavish dinner parties for their friends, but Legend believes having the right music is just as important as the food.

He said: "We pride ourselves on having good get-togethers. Music is key. I always do our playlist and try to get a good mix of hip-hop and I'll do some classic up-tempo soul music and throw in a little bit of rock."
