Cynthia Bailey and Chrissy Teigen are alike in a lot of ways — ‘cause they’d both be super moms in an emergency fire situation. We got the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star at LAX and briefed her on the latest news about the L.A. fires and people…
Chrissy Teigen is an internet darling. She’s gorgeous, she’s funny, she’s a good person — and so is her husband.
She’s also a mom to precious baby Luna, and just last week we all learned that Chrissy is pregnant with baby #2! Congrats to her and to John!
But … now Chrissy’s stirred up a bit of outrage over her comments about Luna. Did she go too far?
Just over a year and a half ago, in April of 2016, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend welcomed their first child: an adorable baby named Luna.
Even during her pregnancy, Chrissy would get mom-shamed over doing things like eating cereal (because the artificial coloring would allegedly hurt her unborn child).
She also tweeted about how spending her 2015 Thanksgiving completely sober was a less than fun experience.
Chrissy Teigen has admitted to drinking too much, though we don’t think that she actually has a problem.
Sometimes, it can be hard to tell with her where the humor ends and the truth begins.
And that extends to her comments under an otherwise innocuous post.
A post about her birthday party.
Chrissy and John, as always, look stunning in this photo.
Chrissy included the caption:
“The best bday party I’ve ever forced anyone to throw me.”
“[multiple emojis] Thanks to everyone who came ready w polyester prints, bubblegum cigarettes and 60s-acceptable sexual innuendos.”
If you’re not familiar, old-timey innuendo is really funny in a modern context.
“I really love you guys. I feel like a very lucky 32yr old girl for so many reasons.”
Remember when people used to call her “mom” on Twitter and she said that it was fine, but reminded people that she’s not actually old enough?
(That trend died down a little after the Ultimate Space Mom, Carrie Fisher, tragically died)
Chrissy’s caption continues:
“Thanks @chefemklein for making one of theeeee best meals I’ve ever had (on both the ground and in the sky), the team at Lip Sync Battle for making my Bingo dreams come true, @panamexperience for truly having the most entertaining crew imaginable,” she said.
And she saved the best for last:
“And my husband for indulging me in every way possible.”
But here’s where she gets controversial.
“Everything is better with you and Lu.”
Okay, technically, the controversial part starts with the next line.
“Well, not everything is better with Lu…”
“Honestly kids can kinda be a buzzkill sometimes.”
That’s hard to dispute, right? But it’s what stirred up some self-righteous anger.
“But we won’t tell her and I’ll delete this before she can read.”
That is an adorable solution.
While we’re glad that the angry reactions were drowned out by positive reactions (wishes of happy birthday, compliments on her look, etc), we don’t think that he mom-shaming was warranted.
Children can and are buzzkills. They interrupt sex, and their developing brains don’t handle feelings very well and their clumsy squishy bodies don’t cooperate with them very well.
That doesn’t mean that they aren’t lovable or cute or precious or smart. Just that they can be, you know, a major change to your life from what it was like before.
She’s not shaming Luna or whatever, and this is the sort of sentiment that a teenage Luna — who’ll be an older sister — will absolutely share.
So let’s not mom-shame Chrissy Teigen for saying something that’s funny, true, and not actually hurtful.
Also, some of the negative comments were comparing that photo of Luna and John to The Get Out because there were a lot of white people. Don’t do that with real people, folks. Casts of TV shows? Sure. But not real people with real friends.
Chrissy Teigen has another baby in her belly, and she let her daughter, Luna, help announce it to the world. This is Chrissy and John’s second child together. Congrats!
You know, back in August, Chrissy Teigen admitted that one of the reason that she's such a delightful oversharer is that, well, she might drink a little too much sometimes. Lowered inhibitions can lead directly to tweeting all sorts of things.
But has anyone else noticed a drop-off in Chrissy Teigen's TMI tweets? Sure, she's on Twitter plenty, but she hasn't told us anything about what sex positions John Legend can do in a while.
And now we know why: she's pregnant! Watch the video of the announcement below!
Chrissy Teigen is one of social media's true gems.
We've heard that John Legend fell in love with her through her tweets and, honestly? Same.
John Legend has some great tweets of his own and an entire music career, but we don't think that he minds that, to many of us, he's "Chrissy Teigen's husband."
Chrissy is a model and television host, but she's been a source of entertainment for years — and a voice of reason on Twitter in this topsy-turvy world in which we find ourselves in 2017.
A lot of that just means tweeting about how unlikable Trump is. But that can be reassuring in a world gone mad.
It's no surprise that Chrissy Teigen's pregnancy announcement was both adorable and funny.
Recognize this little cutie?
This is Luna, Chrissy and John's first child.
Luna is adorable and she's growing up so, so quickly.
As you'll see in the video below, Chrissy Teigen let Luna make the announcement.
She invites Luna over to see Chrissy's belly, and asks her what's inside.
Luna knows that it's a baby. She's about to become a big sister!
Like we said, Chrissy was also funny about it.
Her caption for the video, which she shared minutes ago on Instagram?
As happy as we always are to get official confirmation of the identity of the baby-daddy of any celebrity child, we … kind of figured.
We should mention that Chrissy Teigen knows that pregnancy isn't all fun and bigger boobs.
After giving birth to Luna, Chrissy Teigen experienced post-partum depression. That's no joke.
But, when you look at Luna, you can see that it was worth it.
Chrissy has also gotten drunk and tweeted photos of her stretch marks.
Stretch marks are part of having human skin and definitely part of pregnancy, so she has more of that to look forward to.
But this time, Chrissy knows what to expect from pregnancy.
And Luna gets to be excited about getting a precious little baby sibling.
Congratulations to John Legend and Chrissy Teigen!
Also, this video is just all kinds of cute:
Chrissy Teigen has a tipping point when it comes to leaving $ 1,000 tips and it has nothing to do with what’s on the menu. We got Chrissy at LAX Monday and asked her about the monstrous $ 1,000 tip she left a waitress at an Ohio Outback Steakhouse…
It would be hard to name a celebrity couple more lovable than John Legend and Chrissy Teigen.
Because, come on … it’s John Legend and Chrissy Teigen.
John is so talented and adorable, Chrissy is so beautiful and so real. They’re a truly wonderful match.
Who could forget that delightful moment when Chrissy revealed that she didn’t realize John could see her butthole in certain sex positions?
Or what about the time that he told us all that she’d been teaching their adorable daughter, Luna, how to mock him?
And speaking of their adorable daughter Luna, seriously, have you even seen her?
They’re just the best, the very best, and that’s why it was so upsetting earlier this week when we heard that there may be some trouble over there in that lovely paradise.
According to that tragic new report from In Touch, Chrissy and John “are having real marriage problems.”
So many problems, in fact, that “They have been in marriage counseling for the last six months.”
Their alleged issues include Chrissy’s admitted drinking problem, as well as her struggle with postpartum depression.
Because if we’re to believe this report, John is willing to end their marriage and tear their family apart because of issues Chrissy developed after carrying and giving birth to their child.
See why we called this mess “tragic”?
“They are fighting nonstop,” the report continued.
But, on the bright side, “They’re trying very hard to make their marriage work.”
The whole thing is very depressing, and while we wouldn’t imagine it to be true, we wouldn’t have imagined many celebrity splits that have happened this year.
Chris Pratt and Anna Faris? Fergie and Josh Duhamel?
It’s a bad time to be a long-lasting celeb couple.
However, before you get too upset, know that Chrissy has addressed this rumor not once, but twice.
And both statements are, in typical Chrissy Teigen fashion, simply delightful.
First, she shared a photo of the In Touch cover on Instagram — the cover that advertised an “exclusive” about “Chrissy & John: On the Brink of Splitting.”
“Oh in touch go f-ck yourselves, you exclusively dumb pieces of trash,” she wrote in the caption.
Then yesterday, paparazzi got video of Chrissy and little Luna leaving LAX, and they managed to get a few colorful comments out of her.
First, a photographer told her that if she and John did ever split, he’d “lose all faith in love.”
In response, she laughed and said “We’re not even close!”
He asked her why people are writing things about their split then, if they’re so happily married, and she said “Well, In Touch is f-ckin’ stupid.”
She also said that she has “no idea” where they get their stories from, but maybe “They’re bored. No news. Slow news day.”
Chrissy, gem that she is, then revealed the secret to successful Hollywood relationships: “I think enjoying yourself, having fun, realizing it’s all bullsh-t.”
Oh, girl. Never change.
Not that you would.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend aren’t going the way of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Ben Affleck and Jen Garner, Fergie and Josh Duhamel … they’re in it for the long haul, according to Chrissy. We got Chrissy coming out of LAX Friday with baby…
It’s hard to imagine a more relatable celebrity couple than Chrissy Teigen and John Legend.
Sure, they’re globe-trotting kajillionaires, and she’s one of the most gorgeous creatures on the planet (and yes, we’ve taken puppies and gazelles into consideration), but they also deliver the quirky weirdness in a way most A-list couples would never dare.
Part of the appeal is that we know so much about life in the Legend household, thanks to Chrissy’s tendency to overshare on social media.
The woman can’t stop documenting every mundane moment of her life on Twitter and Instagram, and her fans love her all the more for it.
Last month, we learned that Chrissy drinks too much (by her own admission).
Prior to that, the model and mom revealed that she was unaware that John has seen her butthole during sex.
(Like we said, she seriously has no filter.)
But it seems the same issues that have issues that have endeared Chrissy to so many fans might now be taking a toll on her marriage.
“They have been in marriage counseling for the last six months,” a source close to the Legends tells In Touch, adding that John and Chrissy “are having real marriage problems.”
This news isn’t coming out of nowhere, as Teigen recently opened up about a rough patch, during which Legend actually broke up with her.
The couple patched things up, but the insider says they’ve been having a difficult time in recent months, partially as a result of Teigen’s struggles with postpartum depression, and tendency to self-medicate with alcohol.
“They are fighting nonstop,” the informant claims, adding:
“They’re trying very hard to make their marriage work.”
Neither party has commented on the rumors yet, but we’re guessing that won’t be the case for much longer.
Chrissy rarely remains quiet about tabloid speculation on her personal life.
Come to think of it, Chrissy rarely remains quiet on any topic.
As much as we enjoy her outspoken political hot takes, we’re sort of hoping she’ll take a moment to put this rumor to bed with a dismissive tweet.
If John and Chrissy break, who will we fantasize about being adopted by?
Chrissy Teigen is one of the funniest and most candid celebrities in Hollywood.
Case in point:
She recently told husband John Legend that he couldn’t have sex with her doggy style any longer because she didn’t want him seeing her butt hole…
… and then she told the world this story in a magazine interview.
But it turns out that a major reason why Teigen shares so much with the public is because she drinks a lot of alcohol and it lower her inhibitions.
This is especially true when she attends awards shows, which may explain why she fell asleep at this year’s Oscars.
In a chat with Cosmopolitan published on Monday, the wife of John Legend explained how and why drinking became a part of her routine for these special occasions.
“I got used to being in hair and makeup and having a glass of wine,” she said, adding:
“Then that glass of wine would carry over into me having one before the awards show. And then a bunch at the awards show.
“And then I felt bad for making kind of an ass of myself to people that I really respected.”
Did her drunk state often lead to some very funny Instagram posts? Yes.
But also to many hangovers and feelings of shame the following day.
“That feeling, there’s just nothing like that. You feel horrible,” she told Cosmo. “It’s not a good look for me, for John [Legend], for anybody.”
Teigen went on to reveal a history of alcohol abuse in her family and added that having easy access to drinks (at any time) makes it tough to resist.
“Imagine everything we have,” she said honestly. “Everything is there, always. I don’t know how to go to an awards show and not drink.”
There hasn’t been any kind of intervention, Teigen notes;.
No one close to her has sat Chrissy down for a big talk. She’s simply taken a long look in the literal and figurative mirror.
“Nobody really brought it up to me. They just assumed that it was OK because I always felt OK the next morning. I knew in my heart it wasn’t right.
“It makes you very short with people. People think it’s cutesy and fun to go on these boozy brunches, but there’s more to it.
“I’ve never once been like, ‘I’m sure glad I had that boozy brunch!’”
Because people suck and the Internet is a mean place, users responded to Teigen’s admissions here with cruelty.
They slammed her for her drinking and said they felt sorry for her husband, prompting the star to respond with shock and sadness, as you can see here:
In conclusion, the mother of 16-month old Luna thought back to a “wonderful” trip to Bali during which she never really drank.
She still had a great time and she plans to make this more of a habit.
I used to think it was kind of nutty to have to go totally sober. But now I get it. I don’t want to be that person. … I have to fix myself.”
We applaud your candor and wish you the best of luck, Chrissy.
Chrissy Teigen’s breaking out in green … almost from head to toe. The supermodel, hubby John Legend and baby Luna are in Venice, Italy for a little family vacay. Chrissy showed off her best assets in her loose tropical-themed outfit that…
