The 32-year-old model took to Twitter on Sunday to reveal that everyone has been mispronouncing her name for years. The shocking discovery came after a fan tweeted, "Well, we pronounce @chrissyteigen's name wrong all the time."
"Word! Gave up a long time ago. Last name is Tie-gen not Tee-gen," she wrote in response.
The mother of two addressed the reveal one last time in a video posted to Twitter. "I'm tired of living this lie -- it's Tie-gen," she said in the clip, before yelling out to her mom for confirmation. "Told you! It's Tie-gen."
People will have lots of immediate practice pronouncing the Lip Sync Battle star's name correctly when she joins her husband, John Legend, at the Emmys on Monday night. The model also revealed on Sunday that she is sporting a huge bruise on her leg ahead of the award show.
