Chrissy Teigen got hit in the face by an umbrella on live TV and it's already the best meme of 2019
As well as her modelling chops - and the fact that she has the most adorable family ever - Chrissy Tiegen is also one hell of an entertainer.
Whether she's amusing us on Twitter with her witticisms or posting a hilariously relatable photo to Instagram, the mother-of-two never fails to delight. Now she's done it again, and on New Year's Eve nonetheless.
During NBC's New Year's Eve live broadcast from Times Square, Chrissy and Leslie Jones got to bond over an incident involving a very badly behaved umbrella, and it naturally turned into 2019's first great meme.
It all went down on Monday night in New York. As the ball dropped at midnight - Chrissy, Leslie and Carson Daly, the hosts of NBC's holiday show - embraced to ring in the new year. But because of the rainy weather, they were all holding clear umbrellas. Unfortunately, as Leslie went in for a hug, her brolly bashed Chrissy square in the face, giving us yet another of her - glorious -reaction shots.
Watch the hilarious moment here...
The incident prompted plenty of great tweets from all parties involved, as well as fans watching from home.
Leslie apologised to Chrissy via a sweet tweet, writing "Ugh I can’t believe I hit @chrissyteigen in face!! Lordt!! I love you boo!! So sorry!! #thatswhyihateumbrellas".
"EYE’M FINE BABY I hug too hard what can I say," the 33-year-old replied.
Chrissy also reassured everyone that she was left unscathed...
Of course, the rest of social media quickly turned the moment into a meme, with many pointing out that it doesn't exactly symbolise a bright start to 2019.
Chrissy took to Twitter on New Year's Day to give her followers an update.
Happy New Year to all, but especially to Chrissy Teigen's eyeball...
