Chrissy Teigen has been bombarded with FaceTime calls after accidentally sharing her email address on social media.

The Lip Sync Battle star – who has two young children with singer husband John Legend – posted a picture of her laptop on Twitter without realising she was logged into her email account and that her 11.7 million followers could see her address.

Teigen, 33, confessed she was surprised by how nice people were as she began to be inundated with FaceTime calls from strangers.

The outspoken model quipped: “Oh my god people are FaceTiming me. Was 100% sure this would be a penis but nope just a nice stranger.”

She said: “Hi, Ricardo, nice to meet you. This is my mum. Thanks for calling me!”

When Ricardo asked how they were, Teigen replied: “We’re good, we’re about to eat dinner but just thought we’d answer one of these.”

But the mother to three-year-old Luna and one-year-old Miles posted another clip of herself burying her head in her hands as calls kept flooding in, pleading: “Please stop I have a family.”

Teigen saw the funny side and has now changed her email address and regained her privacy.

But she confessed it wasn’t the first time she had made such a blunder.

She revealed she had previously published a picture in her recipe book which showed her phone number on he dog’s collar.
