We've all been saying Chrissy Teigen's name wrong

  • Chrissy Teigen and Ariana Grande

"Chrissy Teigen is attractive but does she have to be included in everything just because she's married to John Legend?".

Listen to Chrissy and her momma confirm (above) that her last name isn't pronounced 'tee-gan'.

So yes, while we were struggling to flawless our "Saoirse" (SER-SHA) and "Ratajkowski" (RAT-UH-COW-SKI), we were carelessly calling queen Chrissy by the last name TEE-GEN (hard "g").

The 32-year-old supermodel and TV personality dazzled on the red carpet in a silver Zuhair Murad gown. I, too, have been unknowingly butchering the pronunciation of Teigen for years. Some of my peers may have stumbled into "tee-gen", but come on, it's clearly tay-gen, right? "They can call me Janet and I won't", she added. When asked if she planned on taking Pete Davidson's last name, Grande responded by stating that she should probably keep the last name her family gave her.

Chalk it up to the mother of two's aversion to correcting people, even on food orders.

"You know how innocent you have to be to allow a world to pronounce your last name wrong your whole life and just go along with it?" they wrote.
"I even correct people when they say it correctly".

"My grandparents said [Grandee]".
