During an appearance on The Late Show last night, Chrissy Teigen taught host Stephen Colbert how to make Vietnamese summer rolls from her new cookbook, Cravings. A few minutes in, she also demonstrated the art of name-dropping in front of a live television audience and millions of her fellow Americans.
"I asked Barack if he— We're, like, very first-named basis. I asked President Obama if he liked one of our name choices, and he said he did," she said. By way of explanation, she added, "I wanted to ask him because John isn't sold on the name, so I figured if he liked it, then John would be sold on it. He says it's too 'Hollywood.'"
It should be noted, however, that said name-drop did not go without sufficient teasing from Colbert. Watch the full segment below (the baby name talk starts around the 2:30 minute mark).
