Chrissy Teigen is back on her “impeccable maternity style” game. On Wednesday night, mere hours before her 32nd birthday, the model and cookbook author glammed up her baby bump for its red carpet debut at Smithsonian magazine’s 2017 American Ingenuity Awards in Washington, D.C., where husband John Legend was honored for his work advocating for criminal justice reform, among other issues.
Just over a week after revealing that she and Legend, already parents to 19-month-old Luna, are expecting their second child, Teigen was positively glowing on the red carpet in a long-sleeved, floor-length gown, featuring a waist-cinching black tie that showed off her growing bump. She accessorized with several statement rings and a small gold and black Kilian clutch, while styling her hair in a tight topknot, leaving her freshly cut face-framing bangs down. Legend looked dapper in a classic black tuxedo that coordinated perfectly with his wife’s autumn-toned gown.
Social media maven that she is, Teigen documented much of their date night on Instagram and Snapchat. Before she and the “All of Me” singer left for the National Portrait Gallery, where the awards ceremony was held, but after she had already gotten dressed and ready for the event, she spent a good amount of time laying on the couch, watching reality TV, and assessing Snapchat’s newest filters. Once at the museum, she ran through the “America’s Presidents” gallery, hardly giving George Washington a second glance, while she searched for Barack Obama’s portraits. “There you are. I miss you,” she said once she found a pair of images of the 44th POTUS.
Teigen and Legend announced that they’re expecting their second child via social media on November 21, when the second-time mom-to-be shared a video in which she asked Luna what was in her stomach, and Luna responded, “Baby!” Teigen captioned the clip, “It’s John’s!” Since then, in keeping with her usual habit of being refreshingly open on social media, Teigen has taken to Twitter to talk about her second pregnancy. “Can someone just be honest with me and tell me if it’s normal to get bigger, faster with second baby? Because I am getting big, fast, and everyone’s go-to is ‘it’s that second baby!’ but they’re lying. I know it. I can handle the truth just tell me. It’s not normal is it,” she tweeted last weekend. And after making her way to D.C. on Wednesday, she joked, “If you are flying out of DC on virgin today, check under your seat for a very large mom bra. It’s like a talk show giveaway!”
Pregnant Chrissy Teigen might be the best (and funniest) Chrissy Teigen.
