American TV host and author Chrissy Teigen admitted that her love for South Africa runs deeper than we ever imagined. In fact, the star is a massive Nandos fan and even dated a man from Durban before she tied the knot to singer John Legend.

It all started when a Twitter user asked her if she is a fan of chicken chain Nandos when she admitted that “I loved Nando’s when I had it in South Africa. One I tried London and DC, they lost me. Was just… different. Maybe it’s all in my head!”

Naturally, Nandos South Africa, known for their wit, jumped in on the conversation saying “Let’s get in an entanglement when you come back to Mzansi?”

It was then when Chrissy shared some interesting facts about her relationship with South Africa adding that she once had a boyfriend in Durban who often cooked for her.

“One of my favourite places on earth!” the star said about Mzansi. “I love Cape Town,” Chrissy added when asked what her favourite South African city was. “But I did get extremely effed up at the Durban July and had an incredible time. I really love the entire country, I can’t pick an area. It is incredibly special.”

Chrissy added that she did, in fact, date a man from Durban who often used to cook curry and bunny chow for her. How adorable! “There is a Durban lad walking around telling everyone at the braai how he dated Chrissy Teigen rn. What a flex,” a Twitter user posted – and that tweet hit us right in the feels!
