We thought we knew Chrissy Teigen. Sure, we haven’t actually met/seen/been in the same room as her, but thanks to the 24-hour tabloid news cycle and her welcome propensity for oversharing, we really felt like we did.
Anyway, you get the point.
But it turns out we weren't across the 32-year-old quite as well as we hoped. Because today we learned we've been saying her name incorrectly this entire time.
With a single tweet Teigen issued a PSA to us/the rest of the world that her surname is not in fact pronounced "tee-gan" but...
word! gave up a long time ago. last name is tie-gen not tee-gen https://t.co/M9EvS9pTrW

Apparently she "gave up" trying to correct people "a long time ago". So much so that she even started adopting the mispronunciation herself.
See video evidence below.
