"I guess literally saying it was a running joke in the house just isn't quite enough sometimes. I was ASKED this," she continued, in a response to a fan tweet about how one site reacted to her comments.

"I don't just go into random rants about hot nannies," she said in a tweet. "The post asked, I jokingly answered. It isn't that f*cking deep."

Chrissy's husband, John Legend, was completely fine with that arrangement. "Well, whatever you think is best, my love," he joked in a reply to her on Twitter.

"No hot nannies, drivers or maids," Chrissy declared in a Tweet at Fashion Week last Wednesday. "It’s an ongoing joke in my house. I do want to have kids one day, so it’s something that I have to think about. But the rule is no hot nannies. I trust John, but you never know with these men."

"It’s too late for me, though, because I have a hot assistant — she is cute," she jokingly added. "I have to keep an eye on my assistant now, damn!"

"Christine, you’re done!" Chrissy finally concluded. Interestingly enough, Christine also happens to be the first name of Christine Ouzounian, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's former nanny, who has been seen out and about since the married couple's split, and is at the heart of infidelity rumors with Ben.
