Chrissy Teigen Getting Bea Arthur to Trend is the Most Twitter Thing Ever

Bea Arthur was mysteriously trending on Twitter this morning (February 21) for seemingly no reason whatsoever. But upon further review, a random tweet from Chrissy Teigen has led to people sharing their Bea Arthur fandom.

Teigen shared shortly after midnight, “‘Bea’ is such an adorable name. Someone name their kid Bea please. I am not ready for another daughter and John says no more dogs. I will be their god parent.”
