'Twitter is going to be so mad'
Since giving birth to baby Luna, Chrissy Teigen has had quite a tough time on social media. The model/mama/presenter/author seems to be getting a master-class in the sad truth that being a new parent can often signal a big long queue of people lining up to judge you and everything that you do. Even before Luna was born, the couple’s parenthood made headlines with the pair revealing they selected their daughter’s gender.
Soon after Luna was born, Chrissy and her husband, singer John Legend, went out to eat at a restaurant. You’d think going out for dinner wasn’t a crime, but people all over the internet decided that this innocuous outing was licence to attack Chrissy and John’s parenting and imply that they were uninvolved, uncommitted parents.
So you can probably see why Chrissy decided she wanted to troll her own critics by pretending to take baby Luna court-side at a super loud sporting event. The Sports Illustrated cover star wrapped a cuddly toy up in a blanket, planning to pretend she’d taken her new baby to a basket ball game. At one point, she smiles at the camera and says ‘Twitter is going to be so mad.’
Chrissy and John weren’t allowed to take the fake baby with them, but you can watch her antics in the Snapchat video below.
