Have you ever confirmed for a night out and then bailed at the last minute for tacos (or pizza or french fries)? Probably. While you were pregnant? Definitely.

If you have, you’re in good company. Model, Lip Sync Battle host, and Twitter queen Chrissy Teigen just announced she’s canceling Oscars Sunday and tracking down a taco truck. Bonus for her fans: She might be giving away her dress. She asks, “does anyone around 6 months pregnant need a dress?”

Was Teigen actually going to the Oscars? Maybe. Probably. She’s been before. Her husband, singer John Legend, has one and is scheduled to perform at the Governor’s Ball. But Legend isn’t six months pregnant. Teigen is. Which means tacos take priority.

Her fans agreed, of course. And many of them really want to get their hands on that dress.

One even brought receipts, sharing a cute pregnancy photo.

Of course, the model doesn’t want just any tacos. It’s a very specific craving. Teigen, also a cookbook author, would like a taco  from a truck featured on Momofuku owner and chef David Chang’s Netflix show, Ugly Delicious

Fortunately for her, the truck — Mariscos Jalisco — was easy to find, and if comments on the post are accurate, it’s pretty near her home.

Teigen and Legend shared a sonogram of their “bebe boy kinda,” due in June, on Twitter yesterday.


Teigen spoke with Entertainment Tonight and opened up about expecting her second child, sharing that she hopes their baby boy “is like John a lot.” 

“Baby Luna’s more like me … and I realized I can be difficult,” she said with a laugh, admitting that it’s hard to predict a baby’s personality. “Sometimes they go rogue. This one might be like the mailman, we don’t know.”

What we do know is that baby boy is eating tacos with Chrissy tonight.

If we find out who gets the dress, we’ll let you know.
