Even #couplegoals couples have trying times!

John Legend revealed that years ago he tried to dump his then-girlfriend/now-wife Chrissy Teigen—and she pretty much just shut him down.

The 38-year-old crooner admitted that their "breakup" lasted a whopping hour and a half. That's 90 minutes too long if you ask us!

"I was really stressed and busy," John told the funny (to us) story to The Guardian. "I was just like: 'I’d just be happier single right now,' and she was like: 'No.'" 

Yeah, not so much, John...

A few hours after her hubby's interview hit, the outspoken lady, who has been with the singer for over a decade, took to Twitter to respond. The 31-year-old shared a link to the break-up story with a laugh-crying emoji and the caption, "11 years later, baby."

It's clear that the good-humored gal still has her famous sense of humor about her man's past mistake.

Chrissy, who shares daughter Luna Legend with her husband since 2013, also tweeted, "It wasn't a a typical breakup. He was on tour and his voice hurt and he was being a whiny face about everything and so yeah, I was like 'no.'"

Good thing! Or else the Internet would be lacking one of Hollywood's most fun-loving couples and their too-cute kiddo!

In addition to admitting he had the audacity to dump the model, John did take a minute to gush about how his wife inspires him.

"She pushes me to be funnier, not because she’s trying to, I think it’s just being around her. And to be bolder," he said to the British publication.

In 2013, the couple had a lavish wedding ceremony in Lake Como, Italy. Prior to their extravagant affair, the two were actually wed in a secret and low-key courthouse wedding in New York City.

However, the secret newlyweds went all out for their big Italian event.

Chrissy had three dresses for the wedding and ceremony. She told E! News, "Every time I went in [to Vera Wang] for a fitting, I couldn't stop getting one."

She first wore an ivory strapless open back, V-neck ball gown with lifted tulle skirt and tiered flange, with hand-cut petal embroidered detail for the actual ceremony, before changing into a mermaid ivory gown that had a micro-pleated bodice and sheared organza full skirt for the reception, and then later switched up her look again for the after party, donning a crimson strapless mermaid gown.

Take a look at the couple's cutest pics...

At the BECCA x Chrissy Malibu beach party in July, the millionaire mama took a moment from promoting her summer collection to share some love with her supportive husband. "My glow queen," wrote the music star in a cute Insta post with his hardworking wife.

The supermodel looked stunning in a beach photo with her two cuties from July 2. Joking about her thought process when posting to Instagram, Teigen captioned the pic, "Should I post the one where his head looks unsupported but my face looks good and Luna is over it, the one where his head is supported but my face is just okay and Luna is over it, or him crying and my face looks okay and luna is over it?"

"Park shenanigans with Lu," wrote the 39-year-old singer during a day out with his 2-year-old sweetheart.

On Father's Day, Teigen posted a heartwarming Instagram tribute to her man writing, "What a man, what a man, what a mighty good man. Thank you for the beautiful life and these beautiful lives you have given me. My best friend and partner always, the most loving and generous and kind human in the world. And the smartest. I didn't say funniest so you know I'm not lying here. We love you with all our hearts. Happy Father's Day."
