Teigen took to twitter with a proposal: she would swap her banana bread with romaine lettuce.
Within minutes, the replies were flooding in. But it was comedian Chris Klemens who piqued the star's interest. He responded with a charming selfie offering three lettuces.
Teigen was keen, but she wasn't about to get fooled. She replied requesting proof that this photo wasn't one from the archive.
Chris replied with a video giving the date and time. This was legit.
With that established, Teigen set the wheels in motion for this trade to happen.
The cake was baked, and it looked like a darn tasty one. Chrissy broke out the bundt mould to make this banana bread extra special. It looked absolutely delighful.
Within a couple of days, the trade had happened, and the internet was loving it almost as much as those involved.
