Chrissy Teigen Roasting John Legend for Attending the BBMAs Was Also a Message to Mom-Shamers
The 2018 Billboard Music Awards featured a number of memorable moments, but one of the best came from someone who wasn’t even there. Chrissy Teigen, who was watching from home just days after giving birth, had some hilarious words for her husband, John Legend, as he walked the red carpet — words that also served as a giant eye-roll to mom shamers she has experienced first-hand.
“Wow didn’t u just have a baby John smh go take care of it!!!!!! Disgusting,” she tweeted along with a photo of her TV that showed Legend on the red carpet. Teigen was no doubt pointing out the unfair double standard in the criticism she received for appearing in public shortly after giving birth to her daughter Luna just over two years ago.
Teigen and Legend welcomed a baby boy last week. Over the weekend, the proud new parents shared the first pic and name of their newest arrival. “This is Miles Theodore Stephens,” Teigen captioned the first snap of her new son. On the BBMAs red carpet, Legend revealed the meaning behind the little one’s name, saying, “Every name we give to our kids I think will have a bit of musical history to it. So Miles, of course, is the same name as the great Miles Davis, and Chrissy really liked the name Theodore, so we put it all together.”
Legend didn’t stick around at the awards for too long. After his performance, he hurried home to be with his family — and, more importantly, to eat Teigen’s beef short ribs.
