Chrissy Teigen (pronounced tai-gen, not tee-gen) has gone from model to bonafide Twitter superstar and cookbook author extraordinaire since her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition debut in 2010.
Along the way, Chrissy has also shown off her comedic side as the host of Lip Sync Battle, launched a clothing line with Revolve, and authored two cookbooks — all while juggling her two kids, Luna and Miles. Plus, she will serve as a judge on the upcoming series Bring the Funny on NBC.
Who is Chrissy Teigen married to?
Chrissy is married to singer John Legend. The couple tied the knot in 2013 after more than five years of dating. Chrissy met John on the set of his music video for "Stereo." In 2017, Chrissy revealed John tried to break up with her shortly after they started dating, but she wouldn't let him.
"It wasn't a a typical breakup. He was on tour and his voice hurt and he was being a whiny face about everything and so yeah, I was like 'no,' Chrissy tweeted.
And John has no regrets. "She pushes me to be funnier," he said. "Not because she's trying to, I think it's just being around her. And to be bolder."
Chrissy Teigen has been very open about her IVF journey...
Chrissy and John are now the proud parents of kids Luna, who was born in 2016, and Miles (born 2018), but it was not an easy journey for the couple. Chrissy was very open about her fertility struggles and revealed the couple turned to IVF to help conceive.
"You hear stories about IVF working the first try. But you’ll hear a lot more stories about when it takes a few times. Ours didn’t work the first time, and it was devastating," she told The Cut. "You realize that a lot of it is luck, and you can’t blame things on yourself... You realize there’s no right way to do it, or right way to react."
Who are Chrissy Teigen's parents?
Chrissy is really close to her parents, Ron and Vilailuck Teigen, who call her by her nickname Pepper Thai. In fact, her mom actually lives with the couple to help out with the kids.
"It's so helpful to have her live with us. She's the most incredible grandma. Luna is so close with her," Chrissy explained. "'Yāy' means grandmother in Thai, so she goes "'Yāy!" all day long, and it's just fun because my mom is a kid at heart. She just has so much energy, and I just lug myself at this point."
Does Chrissy Teigen have siblings?
Chrissy is not an only child. She has a half-sister named Tina, who has also made a few cameos on her social media accounts. Like the one time she attempted to make rice while under the influence of marijuana, which prompted the one and only Cher to tweet Chrissy, "I wanna be friends with your sister."
Which Chrissy Teigen cookbook is better?
That's obviously a trick question. Chrissy is a proud foodie, and has published two cookbooks — Cravings and Cravings: Hungry for More — that are equally amazing. Plus, if you haven't tried her banana bread recipe, you are missing out.
