  • Chrissy Teigen launched a TikTok account on Thursday that's rapidly gaining followers.
  • The account, @chrissy.teigen, is not yet verified, but Teigen confirmed it was hers on Instagram.
  • So far, she's only posted three videos, asking "am I doing this right" in one.

Chrissy Teigen joined TikTok on Thursday, confirming on Instagram that a new account with the handle @chrissy.teigen (and a cartoon drumstick as a profile picture) was indeed hers.

The account, which had amassed over 10,000 followers within an hour of first posting, was not yet verified as of publication time but was quickly gaining new followers, likes, and views. As of press time, she had over 22,000 followers.

In her first two videos, Teigen looks at the camera and poses along to "Uckers" by Shygirl and "I'm So Pretty," a collaborative TikTok sound that features user @reyannamaria rapping over @katoproducer's beat. In the third video on the account, Teigen asks, "Does anyone just use this like a normal thing, like, just talking? Or is it always like a viral, like, song thing? I feel like I never see it just like normal talking."

Teigen addressed the TikTok account in a video posted to her Instagram story. "Hey, yes that's my TikTok. It's the drumstick, chrissy.teigen. Someone has my other account, I don't care, I don't want to be verified. If you follow it... uh, I feel bad for you."

She reposted one of her new TikTok videos in an Instagram post, writing in the caption, "Am I doing this right. Very old. So many buttons ??????"

Teigen is known for her online presence, and after taking a break from social media in September 2020, has resumed regular posting on Twitter and Instagram along with the new TikTok account.

Recently, her name was trending on Twitter after she posted about accidentally ordering a $13,000 bottle of wine at a restaurant. Teigen responded to criticism of the tweet, saying that "not everything I say on my twitter is going to be relatable to you because it is my life and my twitter and my stories," noting that it had been a "rough week" after she publicly mourned the death of her unborn child.
