Chrissy Teigen says we've been mispronouncing her name this whole time

You've probably been pronouncing Chrissy Teigen's last name wrong. We're just as shocked as you are.

In a video posted on Teigen's Twitter last night, she dropped the wild news: "I'm tired of living this lie: it's 'Tie-gen,' " she says. "Isn't it, Mom?"          

"Yep!" Teigen's mom exclaims in the background.

"I told you, it's 'Tie-gen.' " She added.

Fans were quick to wonder why Teigen hasn't corrected people who say "Tee-gen," to which she responded, "I don't correct people, ever. They can call me Janet and I won't. Wrong order? I'll eat it. Taxi going to the wrong airport? I'll change my flight."

In another tweet, she claimed she "gave up a long time ago" on trying to correct wrong pronunciations.
