The EGOT, Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony  award winner has now been crowned this year’s Sexiest Man Alive according to People Magazine. John Legend who remains  one of the nicest guys in Hollywood and a man of many talent who is also one of only 15 stars to achieve EGOT status last year is making history yet again as he has now been crowned PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive.

After taking home his first Grammy in 2006 for his debut album Get Lifted, he began a steady ascension to superstardom while using his voice for good. Unmeasurably in love with his wife Chrissy Teigen and a devoted father to their kids, 3½-year-old daughter Luna and 18-month-old son Miles, Legend who is now 40 years old has become one of Hollywood’s biggest stars and still remains very down to earth.

John Legend says “I was excited, but I was a little scared at the same time because it’s a lot of pressure,” he told PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “Everyone’s going to be picking me apart to see if I’m sexy enough to hold this title. I’m [also] following Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not nice to me!” He added.

He is now PEOPLE’s 34th Sexiest Man Alive joining a long list of Hollywood’s hottest, starting with a then-29-year-old Mel Gibson in 1985.

With an angelic voice and an incomparable musical skills, John Legend entered the University of Pennsylvania at just 16 years old and his mother, Phyllis, was a seamstress and also his first and biggest fan. “Whenever we had opportunities to sing in church or in school, my mom would suggest that I do it,” he says. “She always encouraged me’’, he added. But most importantly, it was his parents, including his dad Ronald, a factory worker, taught him to remain humble and kind says the star singer. “My father taught me about character. He taught us by example. He always conducted himself with such grace and dignity,” he says. “My parents always taught me that if you’re going to succeed in life, part of success is having humility. It’s a good way to live life, treating other people the way you want to be treated.”

      With his gorgeous family and an endless list of accolades, the star is happier — and more confident than ever.  “I’m so proud that I have a wife and two kids I’m so in love with and so connected to. I’m also so proud of my career,” he says. “I love writing songs and performing on stage. I get a lot of joy from it and give a lot of joy to other people. I’m pretty at ease with myself now!”
