Chrissy Teigen’s dad had a hilarious response to John Legend’s Emmy nominations


One of the early lessons of fatherhood entails learning to remain even-keeled about everything that happens to a child. Because for every unimaginable high there’s going to be a time when things aren’t going so spectacular. A father must remain unfazed.

Chrissy Teigen’s dad apparently has mastered being unfazed by the incredible accomplishments of his daughter and son-in-law, John Legend. On Thursday, after word reached the couple that Legend was nominated for two Emmy Awards for his work on Jesus Christ Superstar, Teigen texted the fantastic news to her father.

Dad reacted in the most chill—and dad-like—way possible.

Look, he’s a man, and men MUST announce every good deal to the world. He probably got that card adapter for a song, and it’s not TRULY a deal unless he tells someone. I’m not entirely sure how that replaces a thumb drive, but whatever, a good deal is a goddamn good deal!

Maybe dad is just numb to all the good news or he didn’t want to admit to being clueless as to what the hell an EGOT does.

If it’s on sale though, dad is in!
