Chrissy Teigen sets the record straight on her last name

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen caused a stir on social media when she revealed that mostly everyone has been pronouncing her last name incorrectly.

Supermodel Chrissy Teigen is going viral once again.

The 32-year-old star shocked many of her 10.7 million Twitter followers this week when she tweeted that almost everyone mispronounces her name.

Chrissy Teigen isn't the only star whose name is constantly mispronounced. This seems like an obvious point, but it turns out we've been mispronouncing the author and singer's last names for years.

She pronounces her last name as "Gran-dee", which caused the internet to scratch their collective heads.

"They can call me Janet and I won't".

She also posted a video of herself saying it, and asking her mom in the background to confirm that "tie-gen" was right.

Teigen is known for her jokes, so no word on if this is one, too. "I'll change my flight".

Teigen first confirmed the mispronunciation when a Twitter user brought up the topic.

'I know. I even correct people when they say it correctly.it's all v effed up, ' she said. At Monday's primetime show, Legend is up for Outstanding Lead Actor in a TV Movie or Limited Series for his role in the television special.
