I have to tell you, I love Chrissy Teigen. From shutting down mom shaming trolls on Twitter again and again to being a completely unapologetic goofball, she is my kind of girl. I mean, how can you not love someone who constantly finds herself turned into a meme and always manages to laugh it off? She doesn’t take herself too seriously and I love that about her.
Aside from the whole “I’m a model and married to John Legend” thing, she’s also really, really easy to relate to—especially since becoming a mom.
Take her night at the Oscars, for instance.
Chrissy started the night off by presenting her daughter with an Oscar while she was getting ready. Because moms always think their kids are just about the best at everything.

Next, she totally fan girled when she saw the adorable Sunny Pawar from Lion on the red carpet. She got down on her knees and hugged him mom style, gorgeous glittery dress be damned.

She also ate a ring pop while trying to interview Jennifer Aniston with Kelly Ripa and Priyanka Chopra (skip to about 4:30).

And, my absolute favorite thing Chrissy did at the Oscars—and perhaps the most relatable—SHE FELL ASLEEP.

Any mom who has tried to sit through a movie in a movie theater understands this so well. No matter how into a movie you might be, the dark and the lack of little people pulling at you to ask you for things lulls you off to dreamland. There’s no way to fight it. Still, I don’t remember ever seeing a celebrity sleep through an awards ceremony—which only make the whole thing even more endearing.
Thank you, Chrissy. Thanks for making the rest of us moms feel like a tiny bit less of a hot mess. 😉
