Like mother, like daughter. Chrissy Teigen is known for many things: her modeling career, her marriage to singer John Legend and her unflinching, self-effacing sense of humor. This last trait served her well on Wednesday, when 3-year-old daughter Luna was captured with an awfully similar facial expression to Teigen’s, circa that infamous 2015 Golden Globes meme.
Teigen’s unfiltered Golden Globe face has been preserved in meme history: it’s an expression we’ve all been guilty of making at one point or another, and apparently, one Luna is guilty of making as well. The original picture of Luna was posted on Twitter, where the 3-year-old was pictured with father John Legend while appearing on The Voice. Apparently, Luna’s face was a reaction to the performances they were there to judge — and needless to say, she found them somewhat lacking. Teigen captioned the original photo “Omg me,” then later posted the side-by-side Instagram.

As for how that Golden Globes meme came around to begin with, Teigen swears she was trying to keep her face as neutral as possible. “That was me trying not to react at all,” she confessed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon back in 2018. “You know how it works at these things. The camera’s, like, two feet in front of you, and the red light goes on, and as soon as that light goes on, I’m like, ‘Be normal.’ […] I swear, leading up to that red light, I’m OK. Like, I’m really good, and then… I don’t know.” Judging from other award show moments that have been captured of the former model, we’re inclined to believe her.
