Pregnant Chrissy Teigen Was Almost Run Over in New York, But Got Saved By a Stranger

Yes, this is real life.

If you've ever doubted the kindness of strangers, Chrissy Teigen is here to change your mind (opens in new tab). The pregnant model and cookbook author was in New York when she decided to step off of the sidewalk without checking the traffic first. Big mistake.

Luckily, a chivalrous stranger was there to stop her from getting run over, and for that she is eternally grateful.

There happen to be photos of the entire incident, as it occurred, but the internet read them all wrong to begin with, as one fan tweeted Teigen, "What a creeper... where is your security." It does kind of look like an overzealous fan is trying to get Teigen's attention:

But Teigen quickly corrected the mistake, replying, "Nah he actually saved me from getting run over by a cyclist. I should have looked before stepping out!" Basically, this man is a literal angel, and stopped a pregnant woman from getting run down in New York traffic. Thank you kind stranger!

Teigen announced her second pregnancy (opens in new tab) in November 2017, in a super cute Instagram video in which her daughter Luna mentions that there's a baby in mommy's tummy. In typically hilarious fashion, Teigen captioned the clip, "It's John's," as if there was ever any doubt.

John Legend and Teigen revealed (opens in new tab) that Luna's first sibling will be a baby brother, as "that is the embryo we have left." They've always been extremely open about using IVF, and are clearly excited to expand their family.
