Chrissy Teigen Answers '73 Questions,' Including The Best Thing About Being A Mom

"What's the best advice anyone has ever given you?"

American model, cookbook author, and Lip Sync Battle co-host Chrissy Teigen never fails to make us smile. Whether it's about her experience with postpartum depression, her struggle with alcohol, or learning to love her stretch marks, Teigen is unapologetically and refreshingly honest about some of the challenges she's faced. Yet, despite how much she shares in interviews and on Twitter, there's a lot we didn't know about her before her latest Vogue interview. 

Teigen was the most recent person to participate in the magazine's "73 Questions" video series. In it, celebrities such as Daisy Ridley, Zac Efron, and Selena Gomez give a little tour of their home while responding to 73 rapid-fire questions. Teigen gave us a glimpse at the Los Angeles home she shares with husband John Legend and their 18-month-old daughter, Luna. 

During the interview, she shared the one thing that's currently missing in her life (Legend, who's on tour), a time when she felt genuinely starstruck (meeting Beyoncé), what it felt like to be blocked on Twitter by Donald Trump ("euphoric"), and the one thing that she wished she knew in high school ("one day, I would have gas money"). 


As Teigen bakes banana bread and answers questions in her kitchen, her first cookbook, Cravings, is open on the counter. She reveals she's currently hard at work on volume 2. We also learned that the best thing Legend cooks for his wife is fried chicken and Teigen's greatest kitchen hack. "Having your mom live with you — that helps!" she said. 

"What's the best thing about being a mom?" the Vogue interviewer asked. 

"No. 1, taking the photos," Teigen replied. "And No. 2, hearing all her new words." 

And the hardest part of motherhood? "Waking up super early," she said with a laugh. Teigen has previously been honest about the fact that she's extremely privileged to have all the help she has. In addition to hired help, Teigen's mom helps a lot around the house, including looking after Luna. 

Some other highlights of the interview including meeting her dog, Pablo, learning who her fashion icon is, and watching her speak Thai. But the best part of it all may be when little Luna makes an appearance with her Halloween basket filled with candy.
