7 Reasons why Chrissy Teigen is our dream BFF

By Erica Cupido

There are so many reasons to love Chrissy Teigen. Not only is the multi-talented Utah native absolutely gorgeous, but she's also a budding chef, a wonderful wife, a dedicated friend to many and, come next year, she will join Hollywood's new mom club.

The star, who rang in her champagne 30th birthday on Nov. 30, is also always the life of a party, especially when it comes to her own celebrations. In past years, the supermodel and outspoken FABLife co-host has shared her birthday festivities on social media in order to help fans feel like they are part of the fun. (There was a Super Mario-themed party in 2013, and this year husband John Legend organized a surprise party complete with birthday serenade.)

Special occasions aren’t the only subject matter about which the expectant star is open online. From her candid tweets to her Instagram snapshots, Chrissy lets her personality and feelings shine, which is why we've rounded up seven reasons we’d love to be part of Chrissy Teigen’s clique.

1. SHE’S UBER STYLISH
We’d gladly take fashion advice from the TV host. From the Grammys red carpet to jaunts out walking her dogs Pooey, Puddy and Penny, Chrissy is always flawlessly put together but still approachable (we just know she'd let us raid her closet!).

2. SHE STANDS UP FOR HERSELF
When the pregnant actress was criticized shortly after announcing the news that she was expecting, Chrissy silenced those who responded negatively by tweeting, “No more preg tweeting for me, lesson learned!” She added, “Good thing I am unoffendable or this would be a rough few months.” She has since also stood up to critics of her pregnancy diet.

3. SHE'S A WHIZ IN THE KITCHEN
Based on the mouth-watering dishes she shares on her blog, So Delushious, we can only imagine what a treat it would be to pop by Chrissy's for a bite. At least we'll be able to scoop up her first cookbook, Cravings, in February.

4. SHE’S POPULAR
Everybody loves Chrissy. That includes an ever-expanding circle of celebrities from the worlds of music, fashion and TV (think Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Ciara and Adam Levine).

5. SHE’S HILARIOUS
She surprised fans with an unexpected guest appearance on Inside Amy Schumer. Chrissy also showed off her sense of humour as co-host of this year’s Billboard Music Awards. When she’s not in front of the cameras, she shares her observations on Twitter, including thoughts like, “Are Instagram ads tailored to you because mine are all seasonal sadness and Taco Bell.”

6. SHE INSPIRES HIT SONGS
Her talented husband co-wrote the romantic ballad “All of Me” with her in mind. Perhaps an anthem about friendship is next!

7. SHE KNOWS POP CULTURE
Sure, she’s often surrounded by music’s heavy hitters, but the Lip Sync Battle co-host has proven that she can dish about the latest entertainment news as well. The frequent MTV contributor has also openly professed a love for boy bands, which could easily fuel our conversations.
