Five Times We Related to Chrissy Teigen

As we get ready to start 2018 fresh and beautiful, we all must remember one thing: Chrissy Teigen is a goddess, yet also the most relatable celebrity to grace the tweet-waves with her presence ever. At all. Bar none. Seriously! You know it’s true! From her insanely #goals relationship to her glamorous career and beautiful baby, what’s not to like about Chrissy? Besides that, y’all know you stalk her twitter feed like it’s comprised entirely of presents on Christmas morning. Anyway, to keep you up to date and look back on another wonderful year, here are the five times we most desperately related to our queen, Chrissy Teigen.

That time Chrissy fell in love with & married John Legend, duh

Okay, if this wasn’t the most obvious one, you are painfully oblivious. Seriously! Look, this man is gorgeous, talented, and a wonderful husband and father! What more could you possibly want? John is the modern king of collaboration, having performed hits with The Roots, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Fort Minor, and many others; he performed beautifully in La La Land, AND co-wrote Start a Fire from the film’s soundtrack; he’s won Academy Awards, American Music Awards, Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, Golden Globes, and TEN GRAMMIES! Besides that, Chrissy and John are more or less perpetually at the forefront of entertainment news for being an absurdly adorable couple and wonderful parents. If Chrissy and John aren’t your ideal relationship goal, you’re absolutely insane.

That time Chrissy was betrayed, y’all

I’m serious! Can you believe this? The betrayal Chrissy has suffered at the hands of her, quote, “sh**ty friends” is beyond gross, and I think we’ve all been there once or twice. Snakes in the garden, and all that! In early December, one of Chrissy’s “friends” outed her pregnancy cravings to E!, who immediately ran a byline about her desire for burgers and spicy food—which you would already know about anyway if you read Chrissy’s crazy good recipe book, Cravings. Surely we’ve all had an, “Et tu, Brute?” moment within our friend circle, and it could only be all the more hurtful that your so-called pals are literally profiting off of your friendship. Yuck, yuck, yuck!

Definitely that time Chrissy wanted to ice skate but absolutely could not

We’ve all wanted to push our limits before, right? Well, in early December, Chrissy announced that she desperately wanted to ice skate in a twitter video with her husband, John Legend. John wouldn’t let her skate, which she bemoaned as unfair, because “everybody else gets to ice skate”… ’til John reminded Chrissy that she is, of course, pregnant with their second child! A nasty spill on the ice could be a disaster for an expecting mother, so of course Chrissy will remain on non-ice ground.

That time Chrissy couldn’t decide whether or not to get bangs

Back in November, Chrissy had an existential crisis: whether or not to chop some of her hair off and get bangs, or to leave it as is! Since that’s a truly life-changing decision, Chrissy started a twitter poll to see what her fans thought. The poll wound up 49% for bangs, 51% against bangs, which is of course barely helpful at all. Thanks, Twitter.

That time Chrissy hated the new Animal Crossing

This one hits close to home for me, as I’m a gamer myself! Pocket Camp—a mobile app edition of beloved series Animal Crossing—was released this month to general praise, but Chrissy and I know what’s up. Pocket Camp is a sad, hollow imitation of its console and handheld Animal Crossing iterations, and Chrissy herself described the app as, “a sandwich with no meat; a car with no tires.” I couldn’t agree more with her assessment.


Voila! The five times that we unequivocally related with Chrissy Teigen’s life! We hope you enjoyed the list!
