Chrissy Teigen reveals name confusion

Prepare yourself for the truth

While we can't relate to millions of people mispronouncing our surname on a daily basis, we can sympathize with Teigen's all-too-relatable take on keeping a cringe-worthy conversation at bay.

Teigen first confirmed the mispronunciation when a Twitter user brought up the topic. So how exactly do you say it?

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.

The 39-year-old star said: "She was supposed to be taping "Lip Sync Battle" while we were here, and she convinced her producers to push the second show back so she could come here in between shows and see if we would win this EGOT". She said it's not pronounced "TEE-gen", but rather "TIE-gen". "I'll change my flight".

Also if you say "I've been saying "Tie-gen" the whole time" you're telling a lie-gen because no one was saying "Tie-gen", not even Chrissy Tie-gen was saying Tie-gen.

Lest you think she's lying about her last name, she brought in backup. Vilailuck has proven that social media prowess runs in the family with her Instagram account pepperthai2. "It's Tie-gen", she said in a video posted on Twitter. And when Teigen says in the below video, "I'm exhausted of living this lie".

However, Teigen's last name actually comes from her dad, Ron Teigen.

As Teigen is an established celeb, the world will most likely continue to call her "Tee-gen".
