In a video posted on Saturday, August 19, the mom of one wore a dressing gown as she tried to balance on tip-toe in the ballet shoes. She attempted to do a twirl with help from husband John Legend before yelling “F–k!” and dropping down to the soles of her feet.

“I have been in love with watching ballet since I was young,” she captioned the clip. “I was given shoes from a performance John planned for me a few years ago. Tonight, I tried them on. IT IS HARD. Shout out to the ballerinas I love, and have loved, so so much.”

She also shared the video on Twitter, joking, “I’m….real good.”

“My feet. Are. So weak. God I love real ballerinas,” she added.

The video prompted several responses from fans who warned her she could break something by trying to balance on her toes in those uncomfortable shoes without proper training.

“Be extremely careful when on point it’s very easy to break an ankle if you’re not doing it correctly or if you have weak ankles!” one wrote.

“Please be careful. Ballerinas do this for years to work on point,” another commented.

Others thought she did really well for a novice.

“I think the end is especially graceful,” one fan wrote. “The swanlike ‘f–ck’ was spot on.”

Teigen responded with her usual candor.

“I get it,” she tweeted. “I could have broken an ankle. You can stop telling me. If only you knew the other 1000 bone-breaking things I attempt daily.”
