The How I Met Your Mother star, 40, donned his best goofy face as he snuck up behind sweetly smiling newlyweds John Legend and Chrissy Teigen at the awards show Sunday night.
Lucky for him, it seems the couple didn’t mind one bit.
“One can only be so lucky to get a nph photobomb,” Teigen, 28, captioned the Instagram shot she posted Sunday evening.
The photo might have ruined a romantic snapshot of the couple, but they had plenty of time to make up for it later in the evening: the nine-time Grammy winner, 35, went onstage and delivered a moving performance of “All of Me,” a song he wrote for his new bride that earned him a standing ovation.
No word on what motivated Harris’s photobomb of the couple. But we wouldn’t mind seeing more of him popping up in star selfies.
