Chrissy Teigen started 2019 by getting hit by an umbrella

Chrissy Teigen has recently found herself at the eye of a storm of controversy due to old tweets getting dug up from the dead, and 2019 doesn't look great either for her.

The social media star was celebrating New Year's Eve in Times Square on Monday night, and between the rain and bitterly cold temperatures, it wasn't a glorious occasion.

After counting down the annual ball drop alongside Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones, the former supermodel goes in for a hug and ends up with an umbrella in the eyeball.

NBC's special broadcast was on live television, so naturally the clip went viral on Twitter pretty damn quick. 

She joked; "I'm okay!" after writing: "7am. Heading back out to Times Square to find my eyeball." Ouchie.

The SNL star was hugely apologetic over Twitter (and in person, we assume) and posted to her own account:

The actress commented;

"I can't believe I hit Chrissy Teigen in the face!! Lord!! I love you boo!! So sorry!!"

It wasn't either of their finest New Year's Eve moments, but it was HILARIOUS and we're grateful for the comedic content on our Twitter feeds.

Happy 2019 gals, has anyone else's year started off with a similarly embarrassing/painful moment?
