Chrissy Teigen is the queen of the Twitter! The 31-year-old delighted fans this week when she went online to respond to claims that her husband John Legend looks like cartoon character Arthur. It all began when a Twitter user shared a photo of acclaimed singer John alongside an image of the famous cartoon animal, and wrote: "John Legend look like Arthur lowkey." In response to the meme, Chrissy posted a picture of Arthur's clenched fist and remarked: "John when you tell him he looks like Arthur." Her 38-year-old husband then hit back: "@chrissyteigen I hadn't even heard of this Arthur character til now. Was he around when I was a kid?" [sic]

Fellow followers were quick to join in with the fun, with one fan sharing a picture of John in a yellow turtleneck - a scene from La La Land - with an Arthur mask layered on top of his face. Another shared a series of snaps of John and zoomed in twice on his hand, which looked remarkably like Arthur's. Meanwhile, fans of the stars heaped praise on Chrissy's wit. "I feel like Chrissy is the with-the-times teenager and john is the old man that doesn't understand the internet," wrote one person, while another added: "y'all @chrissyteigen is better than any of us on twitter. ANY AND ALL OF US." [sic]

STORY: Chrissy Teigen on being a new mum

John and Chrissy - who married in Lake Como, Italy in 2013 - became first-time parents in April this year. The mother-of-one regularly shares photos documenting her family life on social media, and has previously opened up about her experience of parenthood, telling Entertainment Tonight: "It's been really exciting and fun, and every day is so different, and seeing all her little changes is so cute. Her eyes have uncrossed a little bit, and, like, now, rather than looking right through you, she looks at you, which is really nice. But it's the little smiles that get you. There is no feeling like that first little smile, your first Mother's Day, which was so beautiful and sweet to me. The entire day my eyes were on the verge of tears because I was so happy."
