Chrissy Teigen’s dad, Ron, has managed to have the most ‘Dad’ response to news from the Emmy nominations, which were announced yesterday.

Chrissy was telling her father the good news that her husband, John Legend, earned two nods in the awards for his performance in ‘Jesus Christ Superstar.’ Ron did not particularly care.

"John got two emmy nominations for Jesus Christ," Chrissy wrote to her dad, "He will probably get the EGOT!"

In case you didn’t know, the EGOT is a pretty big deal, referring to one who has earned an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award, with past figures who have had the honour including Whoopi Goldberg and Audrey Hepburn.

Teigen sarcastically commented "dad is thrilled!" as she shared his reply to her message.


Chrissy Teigen’s tweets are legendary – in the past she has delivered zingers to Billy O’Reilly and Donald Trump, as well as sharing her hilarious response to watching ‘Naked Attraction’ for the first time.

Her dad’s reaction wasn’t the only brilliant response to come out of the Emmy nominations. Check out Queer Eye's Jonathan Van Ness's reaction to his double Emmy nomination. It will make your weekend.
