Chrissy Teigen is a force to be reckoned with. She’s a model, entrepreneur, cookbook author, and TV show host — not to mention the mom to two adorable angel-cake babies, Luna and Miles, and wife to John Legend.
But at the root of it, Teigen is a down-to-earth person who keeps us all laughing on social media by sharing her adventures “living” at Heathrow Airport and being totally honest about what it’s like taking a 15-hour flight with two kids.
So it made sense that Teigen teamed up with Pepsi to launch new augmented reality filters and digital stickers as part of the new Pepsi #Summergram campaign on Instagram. People can scan QR codes on Pepsi #Summergram bottles to unlock special filters to feel just as cool as the Queen of Social Media herself.
We sat down with Teigen at the launch of #Summergram to get the tea on what it’s like traveling with her gorgeous family, why she wants to rent an RV, and how to deal with Instagram FOMO.
“‘Well, two kids feels like a thousand. I’m still that person that gets on an airplane and I’m like, “I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I’m sorry.’ But I think there’s such a way to do it now. We ask [Luna] before we leave, ‘What are the things you’re going to want in your seat? What are you going to want to listen to? Here’s the rules: We don’t be loud because there’s other people on the plane.'”
Sounds like smooth sailing?
“There were of course moments where I would be sobbing, holding her in the front of the galley just like crying and bobbing her up and down and nothing works. But for me, that’s all I need to see in a parent taking care of their child on the plane is somebody trying, because you never know what they’re going to do.”
Do you have any tips to make it easier?
“I got rid of my own carry-on bag. My carry-on bag is her carry-on bag. Always bring what you think you don’t need to bring. Just bring everything you think she’s not going to need. That little toy that holds candies? She wants it and she’ll scream for two hours if you don’t bring it.”
What’s a dream family vacation for you?
“I am dying to take an RV trip and John knows this too. He says I’ll be over it after like a couple of days, but I think we’ll really have fun with it. I don’t want it to be like glamping. I want an RV, I want food on there we can put together and stop every once in a while at the rest stop. Just to be able to pull up at the Grand Canyon — to see something as miraculous as that.”
Anywhere else you’d like to go?
“I’m a big fan of main streets in any town. I moved a lot growing up and I always ended up getting jobs on main street because I thought that’s where everything happened. I’ve always wanted to do a show or at least cruise through all the different main streets like that because they sort of encompass a city in way.”
