Chrissy Teigen is now the only celebrity Twitter account being followed by the official US presidential account, @POTUS.
The model and businesswoman had previously been blocked by the account while Trump was in office and she remained one of his most famous and most outspoken critics, especially on Twitter.
With the Biden administration having been sworn in already, Chrissy took the chance to jokingly request to be followed by the new president after having been blocked for four years.
To everyone's surprise, including Teigen's, the official account did follow her own and she is now the only profile that @POTUS follows which does not belong to a political figure or office.
The mother-of-two casually tweeted:
"Hello @joebiden I have been blocked by the president for four years, can I get a follow plz"
When the account did follow her she tweeted again and exclaimed:
"My heart oh my god lmao I can finally see the president’s tweets and they probably won’t be unhinged."

Rihanna was by no means the only celebrity to have celebrated Trump leaving office before Biden became president, but she brought her iconic style with her to do it.
The music and business mogul posted a racy photo of herself wearing sheer tights, a T-shirt that said 'End Racism' on the front and sunglasses. Rihanna is wearing the saucy outfit while taking out bags of trash in the picture.Melania Trump snubs incoming Jill Biden: Denies her White House tour
Rihanna's caption implied that she was helping the new Biden administration clean out the tarnished legacy of Trump's days in office.
Rihanna captioned her photo:
"I’m just here to help. #wediditJoe"
Rihanna had previously been an outspoken advocate against policies put into effect by Donald Trump as well as being a vocal supporter of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
The hashtag in her caption is a direct reference to a phone call between Kamala Harris and Joe Biden after winning the presidential election. The T-shirt she's wearing in the photo along with the trash bags were also part of a masterclass in shade-throwing.
Rihanna's multiple levels of shading in the photo did not go unnoticed by fans and many responded to their fave by complimenting her classy insult. One fan simply replied to the photo by exclaiming:
