Chrissy Teigen Says We’ve All Been Pronouncing Her Name Wrong: “I’m Tired of Living This Lie”


If there’s one thing we know to be true of Chrissy Teigen, it’s that she’s always keeping things real— like, really real. From being candid about motherhood to trolling her own social media trolls right back, she’s not afraid to stand up for herself or make fun of herself for that matter.

But as it turns out, there’s one big ol’ secret Chrissy has been keeping from the world: Her last name is pronounced “Tie-gan,” not “Tee-gan.” She took to her favorite social media platform, Twitter, to share a video of herself saying, “I’m tired of living this lie. It’s [Tie-gan]. Isn’t it mom?” at which point she pans the camera to her mom in the kitchen yelling, “Yep!”

She then explained that she doesn’t have the heart to correct people on it— or anything, really.

“I don’t correct people, ever,” she Tweeted. “They can call me Janet and I won’t. Wrong order? I’ll eat it. Taxi going to the wrong airport? I’ll change my flight.”

Chrissy and her husband, John Legend, recently welcomed their second child into the world, and he’s practically a spitting image of John himself.
