Los Angeles - John Legend slept with his Oscar Award this past Sunday.

The 36-year-old singer and his beautiful wife Chrissy Teigen were so thrilled that he won the Best Original Song for his track Glory from the movie Selma that they shared their bed with the golden gong after the Hollywood ceremony at the Dolby Theatre.

Taking to his Instagram account, John shared a photograph, which shows him and Chrissy snuggled up with the trophy, and accompanied it with the caption: "Bed time."

Meanwhile, the 29-year-old model has been nothing but supportive of her spouse and took to her social networking site on Sunday to share a snap of John holding his special prize.

Speaking to Us Weekly, John said of his wife: "She's so happy right now. She's been crying since I won, but she tried not to do it on camera... So she didn't do it like she did last time."

Chrissy, who married the hunky star in 2013, hit the headlines last month when she was caught on camera pulling a bizarre face while she cried her eyes out following John's Golden Globe win.

Taking to her Twitter account after the event, she wrote: "It's been five minutes and I'm already a meme. Sorry I don't practice my cry face okay."
