Don’t mess with Christine Teigen.
Chrissy is currently expecting her first child, a daughter. But the pregnancy bliss hasn’t slowed down her clapback game. On Wednesday, the supermodel revealed that she and husband John Legend chose the sex of their baby through in vitro fertilization.
“I’ve made this decision. Not only am I having a girl, but I picked the girl from her little embryo. I picked her and was like ‘let’s put in the girl,‘” Chrissy told PEOPLE. Shortly after, her mentions exploded with Twitter users slamming her remark.
“What happens if u kid decides ‘she’ wants to identify as ‘he?’ Y is picking gender important unless u hope 2 enforce it?” wrote one user. It didn’t take long for Chrissy to defend her decision: “what in the…she can do whatever she wants…people really reaching for outrage here,” she tweeted.

Chrissy and John Legend are bound to be amazing parents, no matter their child’s gender. Now that that’s settled, can we get back to admiring her glow?
