This week Chrissy Teigen was recognized at the Baby2Baby Gala, where her husband John Legend presented her with the Giving Tree Award to mark her commitment to advocating for children in need. It was a pretty serious event with an important message and during her speech, Teigen said she was “honored” to use her platform to help get basic necessities for children living in poverty. However, because she’s Chrissy Teigen, she wasn’t serious for too long; Once she got home, she used the award to troll Legend in the most hilarious way.
After the gala, Teigen shared a Twitter video, shot by Legend, of her redecorating their living room to make space for her latest accolade. In the clip, you can see the model walking directly into her home with Legend in tow, beelining to a shelf filled with his 10 Grammy statues (and various Oscars). As Legend watches, she moves two of his golden gramophones directly out of the way to display her glass award. You can hear Legend mutter, “Wow…oh my God,” in disbelief as he watches his wife rearrange his trophies. Teigen however, replies cheerfully, turning around and exclaiming, “Yay!” All of this is proof that in addition to a wonderful advocate, she’s also still the master at trolling her husband.
During the ceremony, which was held in Culver City, California, Teigen spoke about how she’s instilled the values of giving in her kids. “Luna is no stranger to packing up all of her toys and sending them off, and knowing that people are going to open them and love them more and be so excited by them,” she said, per the New York Times.
And don’t worry, no one is more supportive of Teigen’s efforts than her proud hubby. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Legend spoke lovingly about how Teigen’s celebrity status has eclipsed his own.
“I’m her biggest cheerleader,” he said to VF. “I always think she should do more.”
