Chrissy Teigen talks working with Meghan Markle on Deal Or No Deal

''I tell John all the time: 'That could be me. I could be Princess Harry!'''

If there's one thing we love about Meghan Markle, it's her relative relatability in comparison to other Royal bride-to-be's- relative to the fact she's still a famous actor, but still. She's climbed the acting totem pole, pursuing many an odd job in her quest for Hollywood domination, one of which being a Deal Or No Deal suitcase holder back in 2006. And it gets better, she was also joined by fellow relatable-for-a-famous-celebrity icon, Chrissy Teigen.
Chrissy talked about the time she worked with Meghan in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres on Monday, where she also revealed that posing next to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West is nothing short of impossible.
Starring in eight episodes from 2007 to 2008, versus Meghan's 34 episodes from 2006-2007, the two worked alongside each other with Chrissy joking:
"I tell John all the time: 'That could be me. I could be Princess Harry.'"
Meghan was a 'briefcase girl' on the hit gameshow.
It's not the only time they worked together, reuniting in 2014 to compete on DirecTV's Beach Bowl, a celebrity flag football game shown over the Super Bowl weekend.
Meghan and Chrissy worked together again in 2014 on DirecTV's Beach Bowl.
In our minds, they're best of friends, spending weekends bonding over their partners and sexism in Hollywood - in reality, they're probably just work colleagues who awkwardly nod at each other across the room, but we can dream.

In the same interview, Chrissy also revealed her son will be born in June, although she is yet to decide on a name, telling Ellen:
"Boy names are really tough. I don't even think he'll have a middle name because we can't even think of a first name."
While she is a fan of Richard Legend, so he will be nicknamed "Dick Legend", Ellen warned her against that name. John has also vetoed John Junior in one of the humblest brags ever that he wouldn't want his child to feel he had to live up to his name. In typical Chrissy fashion, her response was "wow, you're a jerk!"
