Chrissy Teigen Wants You to Keep Mispronouncing Her Last Name

20 September, 2018, 08:16 | Author: Arnold Gilbert
  • Chrissy Teigen shared on social media that she fell and bruised her leg just a day before she is to appear at the 2018 Emmys

She pointed the error out on Twitter at the weekend and revealed that the correct way to say her name is Tie-gen not the Tee-gen that most people use. It's not Teigen (TEE'-gihn), but Teigen (TY'-gihn). However, she revealed we've been saying it wrong all along.

The 32-year-old supermodel and TV personality dazzled on the red carpet in a silver Zuhair Murad gown, which featured a sexy leg slit and chest cutout.

Continuing the discussion on her Twitter feed she admitted: "I don't correct people, ever".

You've probably read and heard the names Ariana Grande and Chrissy Teigen before, but have they been pronounced correctly? "They can call me Janet and I won't", she added. "I'll change my flight".

Chrissy seemed to indicate that it just got too tiresome, so she gave up.

"We get it, you won the EGOT!" she joked, to which he quickly replied, "I was actually talking about our anniversary". "I should keep it. I'mma keep it", she told Ebro Darden in an Apple's Beats 1 interview.

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

'My grandpa said Gran-DEE.

Needless to say: Leave Chrissy alone!

She then followed it up with: "man. you guys are brutal". She tweeted on Sunday night that the correct pronunciation is with a long "i" sound and not a long "e" sound - so it sounds like "Tie-gen" instead of "Tee-gen".
