The coronavirus pandemic has been affecting the world for a couple of months now, and as the death toll continues to rise, the sheer magnitude of the COVID-19 outbreak becomes ever more clear, and consequently, more sobering.

Recently, the former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, Chrissy Teigen, and her husband, John Legend, appeared on the first 'at-home' edition of 'The Ellen Degeneres Show' where the couple explained that the pandemic's wrath was 'really hitting them' and creating a heightened sense of emotions as the world continues to suffer.

Due to the recommendations by public health organizations, 'The Ellen Degeneres Show' was done over video chatting applications and of course, the topic of their conversation with the talk show host focused on the pandemic.

For Teigen, the emotional effect of the outbreak was beginning to really get to her. "This is honestly unreal. Obviously this is the most unreal situation ever, but of course we're holding up fine," she began in the interview. "It's just been an unreal, surreal experience for our family and everybody out there. So yeah, it's pretty crazy."

Teigen also opened up about a conversation she had the day before with Ellen's producer, Andy Lassner, or 'Average Andy', as he's known on the program. According to the 'Cravings' author, the two spoke about the gravity of the pandemic and how it's really affecting their emotions, as well as, the emotions of countless people throughout the world. "Andy and I were talking yesterday, and we officially decided it was definitely getting to us a little bit," Teigen continued. "We became more emotional about it. It became very real."

"It was kind of a weird, it happened really fast... It's fun to be light-hearted and make jokes and try to make people happy and laugh about it, but then it really hits you, and you go through these ups and downs. What we're going through right now is unprecedented, and it's unreal," Tiegen said.

The mother of two went on to explain that she'll be so grateful if we can all emerge from this tragedy as a unified human race, full of compassion and love. "If we can emerge from this just having this newfound love and respect for our fellow human, that would be such a beautiful, wonderful thing," Teigen confessed to Ellen.

"Because I know when we're able to be in contact with people again, I'm going to be so emotional and it's going to be such a beautiful thing to be able to touch people's hands when I laugh at what they're saying, or touch their faces, or give my dad a hug. It's gonna be a beautiful experience," the former supermodel concluded in the interview.

"So if we can at least come out of this and change a bit, I think that would be a really wonderful thing," she added in closing.
