Chrissy Teigen Reveals That Everyone Has Been Pronouncing Her Name Wrong

Chrissy Teigen is usually one who's not afraid to speak her mind on social media.

The video dropped after Teigen (which most of the world previously believed was pronounced Tee-gen) confirmed to a person on Twitter that her name has been mispronounced, and she "gave up a long time ago".

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

"I'm exhausted of living this lie". Some of my peers may have stumbled into "tee-gen", but come on, it's clearly tay-gen, right? I, too, have been unknowingly butchering the pronunciation of Teigen for years. Her mother is heard laughing in the background and replying, "Yup!"




Yes, yes we all know it by now, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are motherfucking couple goals. 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. (It's not quite a Jerry/Garry/Larry/Terry situation.) "I don't correct people, ever", she added.

Teigen also admitted that she had begun instinctually adopting the mispronunciation of her name after being worn down over the years.

"My grandparents said [Grandee]".
