Chrissy Teigen Jokes About Embryos Paying Rent on Twitter


Chrissy Teigen has had it with people’s criticism of her use of in vitro fertilization to conceive. The multi-hyphenate and mom to 1-year-old Luna Legend was open and honest about her decision to have a daughter, leaving her with a remaining male embryo. Now, Chrissy is responding to social media users who seemingly took her latest IVF-related comment way too seriously.

On June 20, Chrissy received an email about an “outstanding embryo storage balance,” which she then shared on Twitter. Adding, “Damn how’s my embryo gonna be in debt before it’s even born.” She quickly followed up the tweet with yet another lighthearted joke about her stored embryo needing to pay its own rent.

Shortly thereafter, fans wondered if Chrissy was expecting — which, fair enough. Chrissy then quickly dispelled any pregnancy rumors before they even began. “Storage as in . . . a freezer. Not my uterus,” she explained. That should have been the end of the conversation, but it was not. This is the internet we’re dealing with, after all.

Another person then presumably asked Chrissy about why she didn’t just conceive naturally. (The tweet has since been deleted.) To that, Chrissy had a swift and scathing response: “Oh wow I didn’t know you could do that. Would have saved me a ton of money.”

Though Chrissy has always been gloriously candid both on social media and in real life, it’s clear that this is one topic of conversation she’s not letting people bug her about.
