Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have hilarious tiff over who is the family ‘photo taker’
Chrissy Teigen just shared an age-old lament. She’s the family picture taker.
The mom to Luna, 3, and Miles, 1, revealed on Instagram over the weekend that she is the “designated photo taker.”
Moms understand. Of course now, thanks to smartphones, moms manage to get themselves into photos with their kids. In the old days, mothers could have flipped through the family photo albums and seen endless snapshots of their children with dad, aunts and grandparents, but none with mom.
But the cookbook author, former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and clapback queen, still has problems.

Teigen shared a photo herself and Luna that she appears to have taken. With her usual dry sense of humor, she laments that no one seems to care to take good picture when she is in photos and dedicates the caption to her husband, John Legend.
“I never have pictures of myself because I am selfless and am the designated photo taker and keeper for my family and no one else seems to care to be thoughtful and take good photos of me they merely click them off without paying attention to angles or lighting or general ambience. but it’s okay. such is the life I chose. (To john) “
Not so fast, says hubby
Legend clearly disputes this.
He answered, “Wow,” on her Instagram comments.
Then he shot back with an Instagram post of his own.
“When your wife says you’re a bad Instagram husband but you’re like…” Legend captioned a photo of Teigen looking darn good from all angles.
Teigen joked in the comments, “I took this.”

Chrissy Teigen wears many hats: She’s a cookbook author, a game-show host, the wife of John Legend and a mom. But before she was known for those accomplishments, her first venture into the spotlight was as a swimsuit model—most famously for Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition, which debuted in in 2010 and appeared on the cover of in 2014.
But life as a swimsuit model wasn’t completely glamorous. Now, almost a decade after her Sports Illustrated debut, Teigen is opening up about the pressure she felt to look good in a swimsuit and how she’s finally letting that go. In an interview with Women’s Health, the 32-year-old looked back on her career as a model and what she’s learned about her body and her relationship with it—10 years and two children later.
“Honestly, I don’t ever have to be in a swimsuit again,” Teigen said. “Since I was 20 years old, I had this weight in my mind that I am, or that I’m supposed to be. I’ve been so used to that number for 10 years now. And then I started realizing it was a swimsuit-model weight. There’s a very big difference between wanting to be that kind of fit and wanting to be happy-fit.”

Teigen also opened up about her changing body after having two children, a 2-year-old daughter named Luna and a 3-month-old son named Miles, whom she gave birth to in May. Specifically, Teigen talked about how her boobs have changed and how she hasn’t really noticed until she’s around others. “With your second, you just, like, pop ’em on,” Teigen said. “I look at my boobs and I’m like, ‘What the heck happened?’ They face outwards now. They’re like giant disks. I don’t even know how to hide them. I forget that people are still like, ‘Whoa!’ And I don’t mean to shove my boob in their faces.”

We can always trust Teigen to keep it real. She isn’t known as one of the internet’s most relatable celebrities for nothing.
How Chrissy Teigen’s First ‘Normal’ Job Launched Her Modeling Career
What do you think when you hear the name Chrissy Teigen? Most people probably immediately think of John Legend. Not surprising considering the two are one of Hollywood’s cutest couples.
They met was back in 2007 while filming the music video for Stereo and have basically been at each other’s sides ever since. John Legend is well … a legend, so of course many people refer to Teigen as Legend’s wife.
Even so, Teigen has her own rags to riches story and a pretty impressive career to boot — one that deserves recognition. After all, Teigen isn’t just a mother and wife; she’s also her own woman.
Why is Chrissy Teigen famous?

Teigen is one of social media’s biggest influencers nowadays, but that certainly isn’t where her fame started. She kicked off her illustrious career as a model and eventually rose in the ranks to being a supermodel. At the start of this decade, you could barely pick up a magazine without seeing her face (and body). Maxim was one of her first covers. She’s even appeared in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue several times.
From there she added TV hostess, actress, and even author to her resume! In 2011, a decade after being discovered, Teigen had finally gained enough recognition to sit in a judge’s chair. For what show? None other than America’s Top Model. She was there for four seasons before tackling other shows including The View. That’s a far cry from a suitcase holder in Deal or No Deal, one her earliest television appearances.
Teigen also played co-host on Lip Sync Battle, and more recently Bring the Funny.
The triple threat even has acting under her belt, but that’s not surprising. What is, was her success as a cookbook author! After having kids, she decided to try a very different career direction — one that turned her into a celebrity lifestyle guru. Her books instantly became best-sellers, and she now has a trendy cookware line that calls Target home.
What’s Chrissy Teigen working on now?
That moment when you convince @hulu to hook up your followers with the best deal ever. Hulu for half off for 6 months. https://t.co/Sp9NUbvSnx pic.twitter.com/MdtrrnGlNF

Teigen just announced that she would be working with Hulu on her newest project. Unfortunately, the details are top-secret, but that hasn’t stopped Teigen from posting some pretty funny updates about the sponsorship. In the above Tweet, users who currently don’t have a Hulu membership can sign up for the popular streaming platform for just $2.99 a month.
The super-affordable membership lasts an entire six months. That’s a pretty big deal!
The TV superstar also posted a picture of her “contract” with Hulu. The contract covers the $2.99 offer but has much more shenanigans included. For one, it states that she needs to rename her adorable pups as well as adopt two more dogs. There’s even a clause about stepping out in green ensembles twice a month. The best part — weekly meetings with the Hulu legal team called Teigen Tuesdays. Oh, and tequila is apparently a staple at these meetings.
How did Teigen’s first typical job kick off her modeling career?
Teigen has come a really long way, but let’s go back to the beginning. Before all the fame and fortune a young Teigen spent her days working in a surf shop in Hamilton Beach, California. This was the early 2000s, and it was there that a talent scout found her.
He reportedly took her picture, and that prompted her to apply to a modeling agency. She was accepted. At the time the to-be supermodel was just 18 years old.
Now it’s easy to see why Teigen is so hardworking and relatable. She didn’t even step foot into a glamorous lifestyle into later in life. Before that, she worked a regular job just like everyone else.
Chrissy Teigen on Modeling Post-Baby: ‘I’m Comfortable with My Body, But I Know That It Will Never Be the Same’
Chrissy Teigen is no stranger to posing for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. She was a 2010 “Rookie of the Year,” and has appeared in the magazine several times since.
Teigen recently unveiled her plans to appear in the 2017 SI Swimsuit issue — but she acknowledges that things are different this time.
The 31-year-old model became a mom last year to 10-month-old daughter Luna Simone. And while she is still comfortable in her own skin, she acknowledges that pregnancy and childbirth have affected her body.
PEOPLE caught up with Teigen at a beach in Miami as she shot a commercial for Vita Coco. (She’s the brand’s new spokesperson and was filming its first ever national commercial.) After chatting about husband John Legend, Teigen spoke candidly about how motherhood has changed her modeling career.

“When I was pregnant, I stepped away from any modeling,” Teigen says. “I didn’t want to be like, ‘Oh my God, I have a Victoria’s Secret show coming up.’ I needed to take that out of the picture and focus on being pregnant, having a healthy baby, and being a mom. That was my priority, not how I looked.”
Teigen says she blocked out the pressure to lose the baby weight. “I had something much more important going on than how my body looked,” she says.
“I wanted to get back to being active and healthy again, but I wasn’t going to obsess about it. I worked out, I took care of myself, but I didn’t obsess about it.”

Above all, she knows that things are different now.
“I’m comfortable with my body, but I know that it will never be the same,” she says. “Luna has changed a lot about my body. My bones feel a bit weaker, my back, my everything. But I’m okay with it. I have this little face to look at all the time. Whatever happened to my body, it’s completely worth it.”
