The gorgeous, supermodel, Chrissy Teigen, is not just the definition of beauty, she is very real, very relatable, and exactly the girl you wish was your best friend. Lately, she has authored a few cookbooks and is everyone’s favorite person to follow on Twitter because she is witty and genuine.
In a world where social media tends to be only a highlight reel of only life’s best moments, Teigen focuses instead on roasting her husband John Legend, offering a steady stream of parenting quips and holding her ground on her political beliefs. All of this makes her intriguing and leaves fans wanting to know more about her life.
Chrissy Teigen’s family
Her mother Vilailuck Teigen, also known as Pepper Thai, was born and raised in Thailand. Eventually, though, she immigrated to the United States and became a US citizen in 2018 with a perfect score on her citizenship test.
Although Pepper Thai is still happily married to Chrissy Teigen’s dad, Ron, she does not live with him. Instead, she lives with her daughter to best help take care of her grandchildren. Meanwhile, her husband lives just 10 minutes away. However, it has been reported, that Ron Teigen visits them every day to play with his grandkids and to spend time with his wife.
Chrissy Teigen assures fans that they are happy with this arrangement and it works really well for their family because she is so busy. Having her mother’s constant support has been a huge help for Teigen’s family and career.
“He comes by every day and they’re married,” Teigen explained about her parent’s unique situation. “It just works for them. It’s a good family life. We’re all very close, very tight–knit.”
Chrissy Teigen has one sister: Tina
Teigen has just one older sister, Tina, who is also the daughter of Chrissy’s mom. She starred alongside Chrissy Teigen with her mom and Legend recently on Celebrity Family Feud but otherwise likes to keep a low-key presence in the public eye.
Last year, Teigen tweeted about her sister’s cooking skills as her sister was cooking a recipe from Teigen’s cookbook. Her tweet read: “Hour 4 of my high sister making nam khao rice for the book…’How long does this normally take?’ Tina: “like 5 mins.” It sounds like she has a good relationship with her sister if she’s cracking jokes at her expense.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen seem to have great family dynamics
They are constantly poking fun at one another and celebrating life’s small moments. Teigen often posts video clips of her mom or her children being adorable. The whole Legend/Teigen family seems to be one big, happy bunch.
Teigen’s mom even has her own pretty astounding Instagram following where she posts photos of her delicious cooking and also spams followers with pictures of her adorable grandchildren. (Teigen has two small children, Luna and Miles, and Tina has one daughter, Pasha.)
Does Chrissy Teigen have other siblings?
Although there really is not much mention of them on the star’s social media accounts, Teigen confirms that her dad has three other children. She regularly posts photos of her sister, Tina and niece Pasha to her social media accounts, but it is rare to see the other members of her family. She does say they are all pretty close, though she doesn’t share photos with her fans.
However, Teigen’s dad tattooed her face on his arm for her 33rd birthday in a tribute to his love for his daughter. As far as we can tell he doesn’t have any similar tattoos for other children.
