This is crazy! Fans were in shock after they found out that they’ve been pronouncing the last name of beloved star Chrissy Teigen wrong this entire time — and the best part is, Chrissy never even bothered to correct anyone.  

“Well, we pronounce @ChrissyTeigen’s name wrong all the time,” the fan wrote. Chrissy, 32, responded, “Word! Gave up a long time ago. Last name is Tie-gen, not Tee-gen.”

One fan pointed out that even Chrissy herself has pronounced her name like “Tee-gen,” and Chrissy had a hilarious, confusing response. “I know. I even correct people when they say it correctly. It’s all v effed [sic] up,” she tweeted.

Other fans who have had the unfortunate experience of having to correct someone for mispronouncing their names chimed in, and one pointed out that they’re surprised that Chrissy has not corrected anyone over the pronunciation of her own name. But Chrissy explained that it’s a character trait of hers to not correct people.

“I don’t correct people, ever. 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,” she wrote.

Finally, Chrissy recorded a video of herself pronouncing her own name — and she even got her mom, Vilailuck Teigen, to confirm that she is pronouncing it correctly. “I am tired of living this lie. It’s Tie-gen,” she said with a laugh. “Isn’t it, mom?” she asked, and her mom said, “Yup!” Well, there we have it.
