Her father confirmed there was just one baby that came out, but when she called her sister, she said her deep gasp had her believing she does have a long-lost twin.
Teigen said: “At this point, I’m making excuses for my whole life. I’m like, this is why I’m so co-dependent because my twin was ripped away from me.”
Eventually, though, the mystery was solved with the help of Tiegen’s sister’s good memory.
“My sister was like, ‘Chrissy, no remember when you were supposed to do that show [about] finding your roots and so they had us all take DNA tests and they put it under secret names so the world couldn’t tell’.”
She explained that the show never aired and she had forgotten all about taking the test, but realised she had simply matched with herself.
“My identical twin was myself. I was matching myself,” Teigen revealed.
One fan commented: “LOL I was on the EDGGGGEEE of my seat this entire story.”
Another wrote: “Lol omg what a journey.”
