Chrissy Teigen may have just one-upped Kelly Clarkson‘s fangirling over Meryl Streep for the most relatable moment of the 2018 awards season.
The expectant mom—who recently announced her second child with husband John Legend will be a baby boy—stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, where she discussed her night out at the Grammy Awards. And although she’s married to a 10-time Grammy winner, being in the presence of Beyoncé had her awe-struck.
“There’s nobody like seeing Beyoncé in person. It’s just so incredible,” Teigen said. “The aura that comes around her. I mean, she just emits this aura that’s spectacular.”
The 32-year-old model took her chance to greet the Lemonade singer, but ended up fumbling it.
“On our way out, I was like, ‘We have to say something, right?’ ” she recalled. “And I took both her hands—I don’t do this for anybody, it was very weird—and John’s like, ‘What the hell are you doing?’ And I took her hands and I got down on my knees and I was like, ‘Sorry to bother you, my Queen.’ Like, who says that? It was like, m’lady. Like, what do you—who am I?”
Teigen, who wore a red silky dress and matching coat for her late night appearance, admitted that her and Legend left music’s biggest night a little early this year because “sober Grammys is a different type of Grammys for me.”
She also added that JAY-Z had his own bottle of wine at his seat during the show.
“It was hard to watch,” Teigen said with a laugh.
Legend even joked on the red carpet that night, “I’m drinking for two.”
Teigen also talked about 21-month-old daughter Luna Simone, who she admitted has “no clue” that her sibling is on the way—because she’s preoccupied with being a total daddy’s girl.
“She’s so tied to him. I mean, that’s her everything,” Teigen said of her husband. “I’ve got my little boy coming, so we’re going to team up against them, I think.”
