Chrissy Teigen’s 2019 didn’t exactly get off to the most auspicious start when a New Year’s greeting went painfully wrong on live television.

The model was cohosting NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Leslie Jones and Carson Daly. When the clock struck midnight, Teigen went in for a hug or a kiss with Jones … but got whacked in the face by an umbrella instead:

Needless to say, the moment quickly went viral:

Pretty sure Leslie Jones almost murdered Chrissy Teigan with her umbrella just now on NBC. Chrissy is ok, so 2019 is off to a great start. #NewYearsEve

Chrissy Teigen getting hit in the face with Leslie Jones' umbrella is the perfect summary of 2018

For those of you that didn’t watch @nbc coverage of the “ball drop”…they didn’t show the ball or a countdown clock, but we did get this lovely gem of @Lesdoggg tried to take out @chrissyteigen with an umbrella. pic.twitter.com/rXo4S4tQpj

While it may have looked painful, Teigen said she’s fine:

I’m okay! https://t.co/JR2uo7N5ec
