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."
