Chrissy Teigen fans are tongue "tied" after the model revealed Sunday on Twitter that everybody always mispronounces her last name.
"I'm tired of living this lie," the 32-year-old model says in a video selfie shot as she relaxes on a couch.
"It's Tie-gen." She then confirms the right way to say her surname by asking her mom, who's somewhere off-camera, "Isn't it mom?" Her mother, Vilailuck Teigen, replies, "Yep!"
Adds Teigen, "I told you, it's Tie-gen."
Chrissy's video was the culmination of a Twitter thread that started with a meme about the right way to say Ariana Grande's last name. (It's GRAN-dee, not GRON-day.)
"Word! Gave up a long time ago," Teigen tweeted about correcting people who get her name wrong. "Last name is tie-gen not tee-gen."
