The model went on to admit that she even corrects strangers who pronounce her last name the way it was intended.
She said: "I really prefer being happy and getting to eat things that I love, still wanting to be healthy". "I grew up pronouncing 'gran-dee, ' and I feel my grandpa, and I desire I said 'gran-dee" extra".
Teigen's admission came after some Twitter users shared a clip of two radio hosts discussing how they had been mispronouncing Ariana Grande's name wrong all this time, with one user referencing how badly society has botched Teigen's.
"I don't really call this "body confidence" because I'm not quite there yet", Chrissy admitted. She said it's not pronounced "TEE-gen", but rather "TIE-gen". You just have to look at her legendary Twitter to know that. I, too, have been unknowingly butchering the pronunciation of Teigen for years.

"She was very supportive and I'm glad we made it worth her while". Think of all the Starbucks jokes she could have avoided. Teigen got her mom Vilailuck - who famously lives with Teigen and Legend - to chime in.
The 32-year-old supermodel and TV personality dazzled on the red carpet in a silver Zuhair Murad gown, which featured a sexy leg slit and chest cutout. The reality? It's TIE-GEN. Vilailuck simply and hilariously replies from the kitchen, "Yep!"
Regardless of the pain she's in, Chrissy can't miss the event as her husband John Legend is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his role as Jesus Christ in 'Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert'.
