There are celebrities we love, celebrities we hate, and celebrities we love to hate, but rarer still is the celebrity we can actually picture ourselves being best friends with. Maybe it’s their glamorous lifestyles, massive entourages, PR teams, management squads, and perceived privilege, but there aren’t many celebrities that seem very approachable.
Enter: Chrissy Teigen.
Not only is she traffic-stoppingly gorgeous, famously attached, masterful in the kitchen, and mesmerizing to watch on television, but she also happens to be funny – really funny. While we occasionally have to cloak our celebrity obsessions for fear of seeming shallow, Teigen’s smart, refreshing personality is one we’ll shamelessly confess our love for. When she’s not getting real about the hardships of motherhood in an honest and relatable way, she’s gently ribbing her adoring husband John Legend, poking fun at herself, admitting to her failures and shortcomings, and hilariously clapping back at haters.
However, if it wasn’t for Twitter – Teigen’s preferred medium for communication – we might’ve never gained these vital insights into her life, preferences, and innermost thoughts. She is surprisingly accessible via the social media platform, often engaging in conversations with her fans, soliciting advice, and dishing out her own. If you don’t already have reason enough to be smitten with this birthday girl, who turns 33 tomorrow, here are 15 of her most side-splitting Twitter posts.
We've all been there.

If Chrissy Teigen was a spy, we wouldn't be able to keep it to ourselves either.
I could go like…4 hours before I would excitedly tell someone I was a spy

A poignant departure from her usual hilarity made us appreciate her even more.
In my deepest, darkest post-partum depression, I would have personally never called a phone number. If John or my doctor never reached out, I would have never even known. It really can be a lonely hole. Watch the people you love and don’t be afraid to speak up.

Leave it to her to ask the truly important questions.

With one tweet, she united mothers of new infants worldwide.
I truly love hearing other kids cry now because it means it’s not my own. That’s a better feeling than silence, honestly

Say it ain't so, Chrissy.
