Few celebs are more entertaining on a red carpet than Chrissy Teigen, as the model/chef/Twitter superhero tends to say whatever's on her mind and have a blast whenever she appears. This awards season, though, one actor has been giving Teigen a run for her money when it comes to stealing the show on red carpets — the adorable 8-year-old star of Lion, Sunny Pawar. So it's no surprise, then, that Teigen meeting Pawar on the Oscars red carpet would be pretty much the greatest meeting of the minds to happen this awards season — or at least the sweetest.
Teigen was on the red carpet alongside her husband, John Legend, there to support his Best Picture-nominated film La La Land. Pawar, meanwhile, was there for his movie Lion, also up for the night's biggest prize. And sometime during the night, the duo crossed paths — and as the below video shows, Teigen was extremely excited to meet the pint-sized actor.
"I'm Chrissy, hi, you!" The model says in the video, embracing a tux-wearing Pawar. The duo hug, as Legend, ever the supportive husband, snaps photos of his wife's adorable encounter. Then, Teigen politely asks Pawar for a photo herself — and I mean, who wouldn't? That's a moment that needs to be captured forever, and thankfully, it was.
Teigen was apparently itching to share the video, as when she posted it on Twitter, she captioned it, "finally!!!" Meeting one of the biggest red carpet stars of this year's awards season is a pretty huge deal, so Teigen must be ecstatic that she could share her sweet meeting with Pawar with her followers, many of whom are likely just as in love with the charming encounter as she is.
