CULVER CITY, California. – Chrissy Teigen said she feels honored to receive an award at the Baby to Baby Gala, but her acceptance speech was not at all about her achievement: “No child should go hungry.” No child should go without basic things in their home. “

Ellen DeGeneres, Kenan Thompson, and Andy Cohen congratulated Teijn in a video message.
Teagan said that he and Legend have tried to instill in their younger children, Luna and Miles the importance of giving to the less fortunate.
