Turns out, Chrissy Teigen had a host of hidden talents before the quarantine and the coronavirus outbreak that are now lying in wait. The model and social media maven took to Instagram on Monday to post some funny videos and photos of herself, sharing those secret skills. 

In one clip, a then-pregnant Teigen raps Eminem's "Lose Yourself" to her musician hubby, John Legend, pumping him up ahead of his EGOT-earning performance in Jesus Christ Superstar. 

"A lot of people don’t know this but before this all started I was well on my way to discovering my talent for quickly-spoken words aka 'rap' music," she quipped in the caption. "What was merely a source of entertainment for me growing up became more than just something I could listen to others do. I needed to spit for myself." 

She went on to joke, "I used my new gift in every which way I could, sharing the sweet sounds and effortlessness even with a baby growing inside me. It was almost like the baby was lending me it’s small talent for rap as well - I was even better than before."

a lot of people don’t know this but before this all started I was well on my way to discovering my talent for quickly-spoken words aka “rap” music. what was merely a source of entertainment for me growing up became more than just something I could listen to others do. I needed to spit for myself. The first time I got in the studio, my fingers and voice shook like a dog straight out of the bath, a sputtering car engine in a cold winter’s night. But I knew once I passed that moment of fear, the anxiety would turn into lyrics so poignant and beautiful that the world needed to hear. I used my new gift in every which way I could, sharing the sweet sounds and effortlessness even with a baby growing inside me. It was almost like the baby was lending me it’s small talent for rap as well - I was even better than before. Here is me (song written by me) performing for john before his role as Jesus Christ in Jesus Christ Superstar - a role that eventually lead to him getting the EGOT. there were no limits to what I was capable of. Maybe one day when this is all over we will meet again

In addition to her gift for rap, Teigen also shared that she has a skillset for dance, posting a video of herself dancing to Beyonce's "Formation" with a lampshade on her head, her talent for "ball sports," sharing a throwback pic of her with a football, and her "Olympic level synchronized swimmer" skills.

a lot of people don’t know this but before this all started, I was well on my way to discovering my passion for ball sports, mainly football. Life was consumed by what they call “the love of the game” - you really don’t comprehend the phrase fully unless you too are immersed in what is no longer just a game. It’s life. Restful nights were hard to come by, as my feet would constantly jingle underneath the covers, constantly thinking of the next great play, the next hook, the next trick I’d make around my opponent. Only mere minutes in the day were reserved for not-football thought, a quick laugh for my child, a moment of forgetting my keys. But every other minute was a breath, an inherent need for the field. It hurts to even think about such a passion lost but maybe one day in another life we can meet again. 💔
