Apparently we've been saying Chrissy Teigen's name WRONG this whole time

Turns out we've all been living a lie, and Teigen has probably put up with years of last-name butchering like the saint she is.

Chrissy Teigen isn't the only star whose name is constantly mispronounced. "Last name is tie-gen not tee gen" she wrote. Her mother is heard laughing in the background and replying, "Yup!"

The 32-year-old supermodel and TV personality dazzled on the red carpet in a silver Zuhair Murad gown. "It's Tie-gen. Isn't it, mom?"


Teigen first confirmed the mispronunciation when a Twitter user brought up the topic. "Last name is "Tie-gen" not "Tee-gen". It's all in good fun, of course (they quite clearly are sickeningly loved up), but it's just bloody amusing and I love it. "I even correct people when they say it correctly.it's all v effed up".

"The bigger story is Ariana", said Teigen, referring to Ariana Grande's recent interview where the singer revealed her surname was pronounced Gran-dee, not Grande. "I have to keep Grande [instead of Davidson] because my grandpa - I think of him with everything I do and he was so proud of my name".

When asked why she didn't reveal this sooner, Teigen said that she doesn't really correct people. "I grew up saying [Grandee]".
