Chrissy Teigen sets the record straight on her last name

Chrissy Teigen sets the record straight on her last name”

If you've spent the day rocked by the revelation that we've pronouncing Chrissy Teigen's last name all wrong all these years, you're not alone.

Chrissy Teigen has been letting fans mispronounce her last name for years.

But the model took to social media on Sunday to say it's not Teigen (TEE'-gihn), but Teigen (TY'-gihn).

Listen to Chrissy and her momma confirm (above) that her last name isn't pronounced 'tee-gan'. She had been doing it on goal, But now, she says, "I'm exhausted of living this lie".

And now Chrissy's gotten so used to the new incorrect pronunciation that she's started believing it's actually her name.

Chrissy Teigen isn't the only star whose name is constantly mispronounced.

Fans were understandably shocked, many sending Teigen questions about how the mispronunciation had gone on for so long. "They can call me Janet and I won't", she added. "I don't correct people, ever". Wrong order? I'll eat it. Taxi going to the wrong airport? "I should keep it. I'mma keep it", she told Ebro Darden in an Apple's Beats 1 interview. My brother kind of changed it to [Grawnday] because [Grandee] was kind of like the Americanized version of it.
