Chrissy Teigen is bringing her baby bump to the new season of “Lip Sync Battle.”
“Extra’s” Mark Wright spoke with the mommy-to-be and her fellow host LL Cool J as they prep for its new season.
Chrissy and husband John Legend are also getting ready to welcome baby #2, joining big sister Luna in four months. Chrissy pointed out that this pregnancy is “very different than the other one.” She added, “Well, I think I've put, I put on all my weight that I did with Luna. but I'm only five months, so... We're having a good time with it. I have a lot of energy.”
The supermodel, who is always very open, decided to keep her lips sealed on the baby’s gender. When asked if Luna is going to have a baby brother of sister, she said, “I'm not gonna say. I want to say so bad.” The couple does know what they are having, saying, “Yeah, we know because we did the IVF route again, of course, and then John was like, 'Let's have something for us,' so I'm giving him that.”
LL, who just celebrated his 50th birthday and became the first rapper to ever receive the Kennedy Center Honor, said, “I feel amazing, you know? I have an amazing life, you know what I'm saying? I've been living my dream for many many years. I'm having fun doing it.”
Both are having fun launching the brand-new Paramount Network with the special “Lip Sync Battle Live: A Michael Jackson Celebration.”
LL shared, “Mike is the King of Pop. He had the theatricality, as he called it, and he was just the most... he was just one of the greatest artists ever, and, you know, who better to celebrate in this format?"
Stars like Neil Patrick Harris, Laverne Cox, Hailee Steinfeld and Taraji P. Henson are ready to do battle and pay tribute to the pop legend. Taraji showed Mark some of her favorite MJ moves, commenting, “This is you holding your hat — yeah, it's up.”
Henson also dropped an explosive “Empire” tease, dishing, “Cookie is about to scare everybody to death.”
Taraji emphasized, “Stay tuned for ‘Lip Sync Battle Live,’ 'cause it's going down. Vote for me, though.”
The battle begins tonight on the Paramount Network.
