We've Been Pronouncing Chrissy Teigen's Name Wrong This Whole Time

Adjust Comment Print

Chrissy Teigen is one of our favourite celebrities to follow on social media. For this year's Emmy's, the lucky celeb whose face got baptized by the Internet as a new meme is none other than Chrissy Teigen, and we can't say we're surprised. As fans suddenly questioned everything they've ever known, some wondered why even Teigen wrongly pronounced her name like the rest of us.

And now Chrissy's gotten so used to the new incorrect pronunciation that she's started believing it's actually her name. Her mother is heard laughing in the background and replying, "Yup!"

The 32-year-old said she's "tired of living this lie".

A fan brought up the fact that Teigen says it wrong, too. This seems like an obvious point, but it turns out we've been mispronouncing the author and singer's last names for years. She tweeted that people are saying her name wrong.

When asked why she didn't reveal this sooner, Teigen said that she doesn't really correct people. It's all in good fun, of course (they quite clearly are sickeningly loved up), but it's just bloody amusing and I love it.

"My grandparents said [Grandee]".
