Model, Lip Sync Battle co-host, and cook book author Chrissy Teigen just shook up the Twitter world when she announced we've all been pronouncing her name wrong.
In all fairness, we can't be too hard on ourselves. Turns out Teigen has been letting everyone slide and mispronouncing it herself.
It all started when a Twitter user pointed out that the public has been mispronouncing Ariana Grande's name.
i was today years old when i found out how to actually pronounce Ariana Grande’s name 🤥 https://t.co/24caB2aoiP— Rosie (@Rosie)1536872177.0
Which led another person to point out that Grande isn't the only one.
Well we pronounce @chrissyteigen's name wrong all the time https://t.co/wdqUd8NVd5— J💙P💚 (@J💙P💚)1537149770.0
That's when Teigen rolled in and agreed.
word! gave up a long time ago. last name is tie-gen not tee-gen https://t.co/M9EvS9pTrW— christine teigen (@christine teigen)1537154677.0
Which led to a whole lot of confusion because "Tie-gan" has been saying Tee-gan.

And then this happened. She called in the big guns and asked Mom.
