Chrissy Teigen's Daughter Luna Has the Most Skeptical, Relatable Reaction to Paparazzi

  • Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's daughter Luna (opens in new tab) is quirky, sassy, and opinionated, just like her mom.
  • Teigen just highlighted a photo on her Instagram Stories of Luna making an absolutely priceless no thank you face at the paparazzi.
  • The parents often share hilarious photos of their kids (opens in new tab), and Luna's personality is coming out more and more every day.

Luna Legend, proving every day that she thinks and acts just like mom Chrissy Teigen, had the most relatable reaction to stepping outside and realizing, Oh, the paparazzi are taking photos of me rn. And the epic, epic side-eye is a magical thing to behold—Teigen captured the images on her Instagram Stories. You have to see. 

Captioning the photos, "I love u," Teigen gives us increasing close-ups of Luna's magically skeptical face. That face says, to me, "NO. How daaaare you." As she continues to grow, Luna's gotten sassier and sassier—like, she has opinions on things (case in point: She just asked mega-famous celeb hairstylist Jen Atkin for a $5 haircut (opens in new tab)). So this is just par for the course for the youngster.

This isn't the first time Luna's been snapped making an irritated face or hiding behind her mom while the pair are walking down the street. But, (and I was worried about this too), there are plenty of photos where she's happily interacting with her mom or she seems fine with having her picture taken. There are also pap photos where she's sticking her tongue out or making hilarious grouch-faces. So it looks like she's just a) a kid, and allowed to be crabby, and b) may be irritated by the sight of random photographers sometimes. Listen, I hate having my photo taken pretty much always, so I GET IT, Luna.

Teigen and Legend have said in the past that they have strict rules about the posts they make about their children. Nevertheless, Teigen says being mommy-shamed is frustrating to her. "It's tough sometimes. You wanna be able to say more," she told E! (opens in new tab). "Sometimes I'm like, 'I'm not in the right headspace to deal with this, I have two kids, I got other stuff going on. So sometimes I want to say something so badly but it's not worth it to me and I need my mind to be clear." It feels like just enough to me, because I looooove seeing Luna and Miles. Bring on the sass, please.

And, for reference, here's Luna in 2019 making a fabulous face—I feel like she's either going to be a model or actor when she grows up:
