How Chrissy Teigen Is Teaching Luna and Miles to Give Back (Exclusive)

By

Chrissy Teigen is making sure that her children know the importance of giving back.

Before the mother of two co-hosted the City Harvest: The 2019 Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City, on Tuesday, she opened up to ET about how she and husband John Legend are teaching 3-year-old Luna and almost 1-year-old Miles the value of paying it forward.  

"Luna's just gotten into starting to be able to walk and talk and actually vocalize things," Teigen said. "In L.A. we do a ton of donations to Baby2Baby every single day. We have a pile of things that we love to giveaway, and I just feel like, already very young, she's excited to be able to share her things with people and knows there's people that are less fortunate than her. She's happy to support them, honestly. So, I'm happy."

Teigen, who looked gorgeous in a black Azzi & Osta gown and earrings by Graziela Gems, also praised City Harvest for all that they do for the community. The nonprofit is New York City's largest food rescue organization that helps feeds the more than 1.2 million New Yorkers who are in need. For donations and info, visit www.cityharvest.org.

"It's always such an honor being able to attend this event. In the past, John's performed many times before. I love being here," she expressed. "It's just a charity that hits very close to heart for me. It's always my favorite, not just a big event to go to but to support them all year around is a really wonderful thing. I love it."

While Teigen is instilling the significance of giving back to her kids, the Lip Sync Battle co-host also shared the favorite thing that her mother, Vilailuck, has taught her. 

"She's kind of a 'live in the moment' type of person, and we're all kind of that way," Teigen shared. "We love this kind of controlled chaos in our house and I think we just never planned for anything before and just take everything as it comes and that's it."
