Everyone remembers their first pet. And I don't mean the family dog or cat who was older than you -- I mean the rabbit, or betta fish, or little critter you got to call all your own. For me, I had a hamster named Jeffrey (not "Jeff") who lived in his little cage on top of my dresser. I would stand on top of my twin-sized bed and stare at him for hours on end watching him do his hamster thing. My parents were thrilled with his existence, obviously, especially when I refused to let them clean the cage no matter how smelly it got.
Chrissy Teigen also got her 2-year-old daughter Luna a hamster yesterday, appropriately named Peanut Butter. Now, the Teigen/John Legend household already holds a slew of pups (there's Penny, Pippa and Pepper, and Teigen's beloved bulldog Puddy went over the rainbow bridge last March), but Peanut Butter is a whole new story.
And what a story it's been. Teigen took to Twitter to document the pet's first night in their household, starting off with Legend's utter...glee?
Now, Peanut Butter is Luna's hamster...right? Sure, but you can't say you've never become way more invested in your kid's pet than they are, willingly or not. That seems to be the case here, with Teigen seemingly enamored with little Peanut Butter.
And, like any new mom, she's learning!
Will Luna lose interest in this hamster after half a day? Absolutely -- she's 2! But at least Peanut Butter knows she has Teigen to keep her company.
