Basically no parent on planet Earth could get their hands on a Hatchimal this Christmas. Unless you're Chrissy Teigen, that is.
The model mama, wife to John Legend, took to social media to post about her new obsession with the hatching stuffed animal toy, which was a gift for herself, er, her daughter Luna, who turns 1 in April.
"We are all pretending this is for Luna," Teigen captioned an Instagram photo of herself and a mini-Santa-suit-clad Luna opening a Hatchimal on Christmas.
Teigen later took to Twitter to update fans with a video showing the hatching status of the much-coveted toy. "My daughter might crawl for the first time but I'm busy," she joked as a caption. In the background, we see Luna on all fours, rocking back and forth, clearly preparing to take off! But in the foreground, Teigen's Hatchimal egg is starting to glow, and hatch. #Priorities
Overall, I find Teigen to be refreshingly candid and hilarious when it comes to her experience as a mom. So part of me loves these posts. But...part of me is totally jealous! I really wanted to find Hatchimals for me, I mean, my kids for Christmas, and was unsuccessful. Yeah, I'm bitter! That's why Teigen's Christmas day shares felt a little like humblebrags to me. But again, I'm still recovering from PTHFD (Post-Traumatic Hatchimal Failure Disorder).
In the end, I hope Teigen, um, Luna, loves her Hatchimal. And that one day soon, "normal" families like mine can finally find out what all the fuss is about!
