Chrissy Teigen just hit us with a rather embarrassing truth: the star revealed via Twitter on Sunday that the entire world has kinda sorta been mispronouncing her name for oh, I don't know, the last decade (!!!).
"I'm tired of living this lie," she says in the video. "It's Tie-gen." So her last name is pronounced TIE-gen, not TEE-gen (which her mom confirms with a profound "Yep!" in the background).
Fans, rocked to the very core, were quick to point out the fact that Teigen herself has pronounced her surname as TEE-gen in interviews, so what gives? Apparently she's been living the lie for so long that even Chrissy herself is confused.
I know. I even correct people when they say it correctly. it’s all v effed up https://t.co/aJkweIiL7H-christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 17, 2018
And ever-relatable, Teigen also explained that she's just too awkward to correct people.
"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."
