It seems we’ve been pronouncing Chrissy Teigen’s name wrong this whole time.

Chrissy, 32, revealed on Sunday night the correct pronunciation of her last name, telling her Twitter followers she gave up correcting people ‘a long time ago.’

So, how do you pronounce it? 

It’s not ‘Tee-gen’ but, ‘TIE-gen’.

We’re shook.

‘I’m tired of living this lie. It’s Tie-gen,’ she said in a Twitter video.

And her mother is heard laughing in the background, saying ‘Yup!’

Chrissy’s not the first celeb to recently reveal that we’ve been pronouncing her name incorrectly.

Recently, Ariana Grande revealed her surname isn’t Gran-DAY but Gran-DEE.

But seriously though, we feel like our whole life is a lie right about now.

So just to clarify, the stars name is NOT pronounced like the Starbucks cup size…although we feel like we’re going to have to keep saying it this way to remain sane!

And seeing as she’s never told anyone that they’ve been saying her name wrong, we reckon she’ll be okay with it.
