Chrissy Teigen Reveals Everyone Mispronounces Her Last Name


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."
