The always gorgeous, totally bubbly Chrissy Teigen is celebrating a big birthday. Congrats to the supermodel mama-to-be!
Turning 30 years old today, Teigen was born in Utah and spent much of her life moving around the U.S. until her family settled in Huntington Beach, Calif. As a teenager, Teigen was discovered by a photographer while working in a surf shop. Since then, her career continued to gain momentum and she eventually signed to IMG Models in New York.
Boasting several campaigns, Teigen is widely known as a swimsuit model and has appeared in big-name men's magazines such as Sports Illustrated, Esquire, and Maxim. Today, however, Teigen is also thought of as a girl's girl who is spunky, hardworking and honest with fans about her interests and personal life.
Speaking of her honesty and openness with fans, Teigen hardly acts like a prim and proper celebrity at all—which is why we are pretty much obsessed with her. Just look at her Instagram, where the supermodel-turned-food guru regularly shares her love of eating and all-things finger foods. Whether that be late-night bites following a night out, or at-home hangouts with the hubs, the Hollywood it-girl and wife to musician John Legend always keeps it real, leaving no hilarious Insta-moment unposted.

Until then, check her out on Insta where she's frequently seen cooking up a storm in the kitchen—and sampling her latest creation—just as any real girl would.
