How John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Have Been Keeping Themselves (and Us!) Entertained While Social Distancing
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, a.k.a. one of Hollywood’s biggest power couples, is also trying to make the adjustment alongside their children, Luna, who turned 4 years old on April 14, and Miles, who will be 2 on May 16.
The family of four has been filling their time with fun activities, charity concerts and more, and though they may be joking about splitting up the second they’re allowed to leave their home, for now they are doing nothing but providing us quality entertainment.
Here’s how the Teigen/Legend household has been spending time at home.
Chrissy Is Becoming an Expert Manicurist
Okay, okay, so that's a chicken foot. But Chrissy is really learning how to give gel manicures at home with the help of her mom, Pepper.
She's Also Crowd-sourcing Parenting Hacks
Who among us has not told a tiny lie to our children to get some peace and quiet?
They're Also Homeschooling (And Still Making Fun of John for Looking Like Arthur the Aardvark)
Some things never change. Like how cute Miles is or how often Chrissy pokes fun at her husband for looking like a cartoon character.
The Whole Family Is Making Rice Krispies Treats
Luna's Doing Karaoke (and Miles Is Her Backup Dancer)
With a dad like John Legend, we can't say we are shocked.
They're Also Learning Piano
Well, trying to learn!
And Snacking Like the Rest of Us
Who Doesn't Enjoy Some Comfort Food From Time to Time?
Throwing a Bunny Wedding
Teigen announced on Twitter that the family was “planning a wedding” for Luna’s favorite stuffed animals, revealing that their first song was Selena Gomez‘s “Can’t Keep My Hands to Myself” and that “food will be peanut butter on little spoons.”
Never in our wildest dreams did we think she would actually plan a full wedding for a stuffed bunny and lamb. But she did. She so did.
She even baked — I mean, this is Chrissy Teigen we’re talking about — a two-tiered wedding cake for the newlyweds.
Chrissy officiated the wedding, the bunny and lamb were walked down the aisle by Luna, and John sang a heartwarming rendition of the usually boppy “Can’t Keep My Hands to Myself,” as promised.
It was truly the wedding of the century.
Playing Animal Crossing (Like the Rest of Us)
Teigen is a big fan of video games, and much like the rest of us, is currently obsessed with Animal Crossing.
And Revisiting Peaky Blinders
Same, Chrissy, same.
And Watching Tiger King (Like the Rest of Us)
Okay, and Watching The Real Housewives of Miami
Chrissy and John have been spending a lot of time binge-watching and, TBH, we do not blame them one bit. At least Chrissy’s keeping us up to date.
Working on Luna’s Jokes
Luna is preparing for her inevitable stand-up special when this is all over.
Attempting to Play Taboo with Her Mom
Family game nights with Chrissy’s family are just as frustrating as family game nights with yours!
Putting on a Concert for a Good Cause
John Legend put on a virtual concert as part of a series headed by the World Health Organization and Global Citizen called Together, At Home. Chrissy attended in a towel and drank copious amounts of wine.
Trading Her Banana Bread for Lettuce
As if the at-home concert was not entertaining enough, Teigen stepped it up a notch and gave us an Oscar-worthy saga that could sweep awards season. The Cravings author needed romaine lettuce and she needed it badly. She asked Twitter — it’s sort of her thing — and asked for a trade.
And YouTuber Chris Klemens was ready with the goods.
Not to leave us on a cliffhanger, Teigen filmed the trade-off, and it involved a baby wagon and an empty church parking lot.
By Showing Off Her Adorable Children
Teigen knows that nothing is cuter than her kids. Nothing.
Here, Luna filled up a bowl of possible activities to keep her busy throughout the day. Options included, “sing a song,” “facetime family” and “have a dance party.”
Looks like this famous fam isn’t staying in pajamas all day. Well, at least Luna and Miles aren’t — Chrissy has been very open about her love of robes.
And Miles rocked the cutest little shark onesie, complete with “butt fins” that made his mom melt.
“Guys. I have crabs,” Teigen joked when she posted a photo of Miles and John in matching crab swimsuits.
By Cooking and Baking
Would you expect anything less of Teigen? She has two cookbooks! We loved seeing her “cool isolation cake” that she made with Luna.
And these Boston cream donuts that she baked while “hammered.” See? You’re not the only one drunk cooking now!
Or these clams! You just know they are delicious.
John’s a big fan of her cooking, naturally.
And Obviously Eating What They’re Cooking and Baking
Teigen told Twitter that she is planning to “slowly wean off extremely unhealthy dinners and only have unhealthy lunches and breakfasts” and eventually “only have unhealthy lunch.” Say it ain’t so, Chrissy! Please, never stop making unhealthy recipes! We need them!
By Considering Redecorating Her Hamster’s Home
Who among us hasn’t considered doing something like this when we’ve been bored?
Never change, Chrissy! Never change.
