We have been pronouncing Chrissy Teigen's name wrong this whole time

Ariana Grande revealed during an August interview with Apple's Beats 1 that people have been saying her last name wrong her whole career.

After that clip of Grande, 25, was shared to Twitter, model and author Teigen was drawn into the conversation - and revealed her name is just as misconstrued. It's something I never even thought about when I started my career. So how exactly do you say it?

The supermodel made the display hide on Sunday, September 16, after a Twitter person commented on the excellent pronunciation of Ariana Grande and identified that followers mispronounce Teigen's name, too.

It turns out she gave up correcting people and chose to just adopt the wrong pronunciation herself even correcting people to the wrong version when they say it right. "It's Tie-gen. Isn't that right mom?" "I'm bored to loss of life in residing this lie", she said in the video. "They can name me Janet and I won't".

It turns out that we've all been pronouncing Chrissy Teigen's name wrong - including Chrissy, herself. Wrong order? I'll eat it. Taxi going to the wrong airport? For now, we'll add her confession to our ever-growing list of reasons to adore Teigen and her unpredictable tweets. "I'll change my flight", she continued while responding to another fan. Ancestry also notes how a similar last name is "Eiken", which helps to demonstrate how the "ei" should be pronounced as "i" and not "ee".
