Chrissy Teigen Low-Key Had Dinner with President Obama, Apparently

Chrissy Teigen posts just about everything in her life. But it turns out Chrissy and John were at a very special President's Day dinner on Monday, and the notoriously transparent model-actress-author was very quiet about the guest that attended—President Barack Obama.

Chrissy Teigen posts just about everything in her life: her hot husband John Legend (opens in new tab) and their kids Luna and Miles (a.k.a. John's mini-me). Her interest in food (opens in new tab), and desire for more food. Her glamorous red carpet events, and all the times they were REALLY hungover (opens in new tab) in the midst of said events. But it turns out Chrissy and John were at a very special President's Day dinner on Monday, and the notoriously transparent model-actress-author was very quiet about the guest that attended—President Barack Obama.

On her Instagram Stories and on Twitter, Chrissy DID post that she was having dinner planned by Ayesha Curry and starring Chef Michael Mina at restaurant International Smoke, as well as closeups of the food (which have since expired from her Stories, darn) and details about the menu: apparently "Cornbread with Thai curry, baked oysters ahhhhh." But Page Six reports that the dinner was connected to a charitable cause. John, Steph, and President Obama all took part in a convention (opens in new tab) the next day for Obama's initiative My Brother's Keeper, so the dinner was probably to get some time with the speakers (and their wives) ahead of time.

My Brother's Keeper has been active for five years. President Obama's Instagram post about the event (opens in new tab) read, "Today, as part of the @ObamaFoundation, the @MBK_Alliance consists of nearly 250 communities working to break down barriers that too often leave boys and young men of color at a disadvantage. And tomorrow in Oakland, I’ll join the My Brother’s Keeper community to mark the progress we’ve made and chart the course ahead at a celebration we’re calling MBK Rising!"

Obviously, the guests at the dinner were thrilled to be there. Michael Mina posted a picture on Instagram with some of the guests (sans Chrissy and John), saying, "Thank you for the highest honor!"

Here's that photo with Michael Mina, Obama, and the Currys:

Chrissy, tell me more! (Actually, it's probably classier that she's not discussing it, so good work, Chrissy.)
