Chrissy Teigen’s DNA Test Journey: From Identical Twin Confusion to Self-Discovery
Chrissy Teigen sent shockwaves through social media when she revealed her startling discovery after taking a DNA test. The 37-year-old celebrity shared her experience on Instagram, expressing her initial belief that she had an identical twin sibling. She had decided to try out 23andMe and even paid for some of the additional upgrades.
In a video clip, Teigen displayed her family tree, pointing out a little circle next to her initials, indicating an identical twin’s presence. Astonished, she questioned whether it could possibly be a joke. The revelation left her spiraling into a state of confusion and uncertainty, prompting her to reach out to the company and even contact her doctor in search of answers.
Desperate for clarity, Teigen found herself calling her father, asking him if he recalled the birth and whether there were two of her. She humorously recounted his laughter and reassurance that there was indeed only one Chrissy Teigen. Doubt still lingering, she phoned her sister, who reacted with a gasp upon hearing Teigen’s inquiry about an identical twin.

Overwhelmed with emotions, Teigen began making sense of her life experiences by attributing them to the absence of her supposed twin. She connected her co-dependency issues and addiction struggles to this newfound belief. The realization hit her like a thunderbolt.
However, her sister intervened and reminded her of the PBS show, Finding Your Roots, in which Teigen had taken part. Although the episode was never completed, she had undergone a DNA test under a secret name to maintain anonymity. As it turned out, the results she had stumbled upon from her 23andMe test belonged to her alone.
In a moment of self-reflection and humor, Teigen exclaimed that her identical twin was, in fact, herself. The bizarre journey of believing she had a long-lost twin had come full circle. Despite the initial shock and confusion, Teigen’s revelation ultimately brought relief and a realization that her identity and ancestry were uniquely hers.
This surprising turn of events left Teigen’s followers captivated and amused, highlighting the unexpected twists life can throw our way. The story serves as a reminder that even in the age of advanced genetic testing, misinterpretations and misunderstandings can still occur, leading to comical and thought-provoking moments of self-discovery.
