The 32-year-old supermodel and TV personality dazzled on the red carpet in a silver Zuhair Murad gown. "Last name is "Tie-gen" not "Tee-gen".
Teigen is known for her jokes, so no word on if this is one, too. "It's Tie-gen", she admitted in the video, where her mother could be heard in the background saying, "Yup!" "They can call me Janet and I won't", she wrote. It's all v effed up", Teigen quipped, before adding, "I don't correct people, ever.
Chrissy Teigen just altered the world as we know it. "I'll change my flight".
Teigen also admitted that she had begun instinctually adopting the mispronunciation of her name after being worn down over the years.
"I have to keep Grande because my grandpa - I think of him with everything I do and he was so proud of my name". "I even correct people when they say it correctly".
