Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have had a tough year.
And now the family seems to have lost their pet hamster....though they don't seem so broken up about it.

Immediately Teigen posted a follow-up to show just how not-broken-up the family is.

@chrissyteigen you should’ve named him peanut butter junior and then he’d be PBJ— silver bells 🎄❄️ (@silver bells 🎄❄️) 1607469391.0
She's also not exactly sure when he died.
In a now deleted tweet, Teigen said Peanut Butter's death "hurts like it happened today but it happened uhhhh not today, I dunno I forget lmao."
@Black_1 died a couple weeks ago. but I def also could have planned to just have it. I mean he is a hamster— chrissy teigen (@chrissy teigen) 1607468920.0

@chrissyteigen There will always be a new peanut butter waiting— Beth Tanke (@Beth Tanke) 1607468046.0
We wish our condolences...we think? And our happiness for the new member of the family...we think?
In any event, RIP old Peanut Butter. In memoriam, here is a tribute song from RuPaul featuring Big Freedia.
At least we think that's what this song is about...
