“YES MOM!! Congrats @pepperthai2!!” the 32-year-old model and author captioned the video.
Vilailuck, who was born and raised in Thailand, is married to Ron Teigen Sr. She currently lives with her daughter’s family in Beverly Hills.
Chrissy’s husband, John Legend, shared the same video and praised his mother-in-law for scoring 100%.

Vilailuck, who goes by the handle @pepperthai2 on Twitter, often appears on her daughter’s social media posts.
Chrissy’s father, who also makes frequent cameos, lives nearby the family.
“He comes by every day and they’re married,” Teigen recently told US Magazine. “It just works for them. It’s a good family life. We’re all very close, very tight–knit.”
