Chrissy Teigen Pens Emotional Post After Thanksgiving Dinner

Last year, singer Chrissy Teigen and her husband, John Legend, had a particularly tough Thanksgiving. It had only been a couple of months since they lost their son, Jack. According to US Magazine, Legend still took to Instagram to express gratitude for his family and wrote a simple caption with a picture of Teigen and their kids. It read, "so so grateful for these three. Happy Thanksgiving!"

Also, according to People, Teigen chose to not cook as much last year, sticking to simple dishes such as a prime rib roast and mushrooms. "We've been doing this for 10 years with John and his family now, and I think I've gotten a little tired of just seeing so much food go to waste. I go way too hard with way too many sides," she explained.

The family is also having a sober Thanksgiving this time around. Teigen wrote about their Thanksgiving festivities on Instagram, noting that this is the first time ever she's truly been able to make the most of the holiday. It was a touching caption that received plenty of positive responses from fans.

It's a moving sentiment

Chrissy Teigen wrote on Instagram that she has been able to truly enjoy a Thanksgiving meal for the first time. She's made a few changes in her lifestyle and has decided to stay sober this year. "I used to start my thanksgiving prep with a shot of cafe patron (coffee tequila) and I'd pretty much take another every couple of hours," she said in her caption.

She added that this year has been especially great because she didn't make any major mistakes with her recipes. Andrew Zimmern especially loved her post and said that sobriety is one of the best gifts that anyone can have. He added, "...recovery is a gratitude centered process so this post on this day is extra meaningful. Very happy for you." A fan wrote that Teigen is setting a lovely example for her family members as well as her fans. 

Others could really identify with what the singer wrote. An Instagram user mentioned that they quit drinking around two years ago and things have been a lot more real and better since then. They added, "so happy for you!"
