The countdown has officially started! Tomorrow (30 November) model Chrissy Teigen turns 30 and we're sure that she'll be celebrating big with husband John Legend, who will pull out all the stops. The brunette beauty, who is pregnant with the couple's first child, may have rose to fame as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, but let's not forget that she has also been the face of campaigns for the Gillette Venus & Olay Razor and Skullcandy headphones. Her comical comments on social media have made a firm favourite in celebsville.

Teigen already entertained fans over Thanksgiving with her 'fat face' photos following their feast, so expect some just as hilarious on her big day. So to help the quirky foodie celebrate her milestone birthday, IBTimes UK have compiled a list of some of her memorable moments.


In September 2013, the social media-savvy model tied the knot with Grammy Award-winning musician John Legend on Lake Como, Italy after four years of dating. One of the most epic pictures from their wedding day is a black and white snap of the blushing bride lying down on the floor with one leg in the air in her Vera Wang dress.

Fertility struggles

Teigen was close to tears when she opened up about her and Legend's fertility struggles during an episode of her new show, FABLife. Speaking to co-host Tyra Banks, she revealed that they had sort professional help after trying for years to conceive.

"We would have had kids five, six years ago if it happened. But my gosh it's been a process," she said.

"We've seen fertility doctors and once you open up about those things to other people you learn that a lot of other people in your life are seeing these people and they have this shame about it."

She added: "It hasn't been easy, but we kept trying because we can't wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family. We're so excited that it's finally happening. Thank you for all your love and well wishes. I look forward to all the belly touching! Xx."
