Chrissy Teigen sets the record straight on her last name
LOS ANGELES — Chrissy Teigen said people have been mispronouncing her last name for years, and she hasn’t corrected them.
But the model took to social media on Sunday to say it’s not Teigen (TEE’-gihn), but Teigen (TY’-gihn). Off camera, her mother confirmed it with a “Yep!”
The 32-year-old said she’s “tired of living this lie.”
She previously wrote on Twitter that her name has been mispronounced and she “doesn’t correct people, ever.” /kga
