Chrissy Teigen and Her Kids Wear Traditional Clothing During Thailand Trip

Chrissy Teigen is sharing more highlights from her family’s trip to Thailand.

On April 6, the author and model, 38, showed off her and her kids’ traditional Thai looks on her Instagram Stories as they prepared to spend some more time visiting her extended family.

In one video, Teigen — who is half Thai — took a selfie wearing an embellished pink and purple dress with lots of gold bling on top. She tagged her makeup artist, Punpawee Somporn, who oversaw her elegant, glowing glam look. Teigen also wore a golden headpiece over her slicked-back hairstyle, adorned in jewels of all different colors, as well as a gold arm band.

Meanwhile, Teigen’s 5-year-old son, Miles, sported a boys’ traditional formal outfit featuring a white collared shirt, shiny purple pants, a pink sash around his waist and a gold chain across one of his shoulders.

The family’s eldest daughter Luna, 7, also dressed up for the occasion, wearing a sparkly pale pink top and sash, which was embroidered with beads and jewels, as well as a long blue silk skirt. Luna finished her look with a top knot bun, a small golden hairpiece and matching pink pearl earrings and bracelets.

Teigen, her four kids and her husband, John Legend, have been spending time in Thailand visiting her mom, Vilailuck “Pepper” Teigen, who moved back to her childhood hometown of Korat in January.

“#YAIHOUSE,” Pepper hashtagged an Instagram post in March, showing her grandchildren at her new abode in Thailand (“yai” refers to the Thai word for “grandma”).

Last week, Teigen shared another post on Instagram that featured photos of her family’s travel adventure to get to her mom’s house.

“Family of 6 made it to thailand to visit yai!” she began the post’s caption.

Back in January, Teigen and her Chrissy & Dave Dine Out co-host David Chang stopped by SiriusXM’s TODAY radio show The Happy Hour to chat with co-hosts Talia Parkinson-Jones, Donna Farizan and Gavin Shulman about her mother’s move back to Thailand after living in the U.S. for many years.

“We haven’t really told the world or the internet, and everyone’s gonna be probably so confused,” Teigen said during the interview. “She is meant to go live her best life.” 

After Teigen shared how much her mother “loves taking care of her grandchildren,” she explained that Pepper is “young enough that she needs to go off and be happy.” 

She added how “special” and “amazing” it was to see her mother “at home” with her children.

“But yeah, we miss her. So much. She’s only been gone for a couple of weeks, but you feel the void,” Teigen added of her mom.

She said that it was Pepper’s decision to move back to her hometown and noted her strong bond with her group of friends in Korat. “She just changes; she lights up when she sees them, and I wasn’t seeing her light up as much without them,” she explained.

The Cravings author also said her family plans to visit Pepper “every spring break,” and that she’s explained to her children that their time with their grandmother in the future will “be really special.”
