VEGASMAMA: Tina Teigen


Tina Teigen is one of those VEGASMAMAS™ you meet once and you want to talk to for hours.  About anything.  About life.  Kids.  Fun.  How hard it all is sometimes.  How in Vegas you feel lost sometimes.  You can get raw with her and feel so safe because you know she’s got your back; she lacks a judgmental mind and her feet are firmly, realistically planted in the earth.  She is real, a believer that life truly is beautiful. 

It’s no surprise that my beloved 100% agave tequila, nicknamed “TiTi”, and one of my favorite VEGASMAMAS™ shares the same sounding name…rather, initials.

VEGASMAMA & me beachtime.


Hailing from a divorce, Tina and her ex have done the ultimate in parenting…they’ve prioritized their daughter and live a modernized-co-existence as divorcees sharing custody.  What exactly does that mean?  Well, they live across-the-street from one another, they enjoy family dinners four nights out-of-the-week, share a nanny, vacation together and get along seamlessly.  Most people don’t even know they’re divorced, their couple-flow is like a spring mountain stream enjoying winter’s run-off.

You might recognize her last name.  Tina’s sister, Chrissy Teigen, is the inspired supermodel we all follow and love.  Tina, the older sister, is a superstar of our VEGASMAMAS cyber-village….she splits her time between parenting, philanthropy, family time (her family is extremely close) and craft cocktails from Vesper BarJohn Legend is her brother-in-law and I love hearing little ones belting-out his newest redo "Beauty & The Beast" down the hallways of my sons' schools.

To say this family is creative, loving and talented in all they do as an understatement…to say they live their best day, every day is not an overstatement. 

Tina’s smile is vibrant and her joie de vivre is contagious.  Thank you, Tina, VEGASMAMAS™ loves you.
