If you've spent the day rocked by the revelation that we've pronouncing Chrissy Teigen's last name all wrong all these years, you're not alone.

The 32-year-old star shocked many of her 10.7 million Twitter followers this week when she tweeted that almost everyone mispronounces her name.

The mother-of-two shared her response, saying "I just had a baby but thank you for being soooo respectful".

'I don't correct people, ever.

The whole thing kicked off when a college student expressed shock that most people don't correctly pronounce Ariana Grande's last name.

"I don't really call this "body confidence" because I'm not quite there yet", Chrissy admitted. Teigen quote-tweeted Alagha's comment writing "breathe Chrissy", in order to not go off. "I'll change my flight".

Clearly, the mispronunciation has taken its toll on her. If that's even her real name? "My grandpa said "gran-dee, '" the 25-365 days-veteran outlined".

What have you been pronouncing Chrissy's name like?

However, Teigen's last name actually comes from her dad, Ron Teigen. While announcing her new Snapchat account, she said to the camera, "It's 'Rihanna, ' follow me". Although Rihanna hasn't made a big deal about correcting fans, a video she posted on Instagram revealed we all had it wrong.
