Chrissy Teigen—mother, model, actor, author, Lip Sync Battle host, voracious tweeter—has apparently been mispronouncing her last name for years to make us all feel better, because we’ve been mispronouncing it for years.

This is somehow more earth-shattering than learning Bhad Bhabie is pronounced “bad baby” and not like a goat attempting to pronounce “bad baby.”

Update, 8:24 p.m.: Chrissy Teigen hit the 2018 Emmy’s red carpet and confirmed that, yes, her name is actually pronounced “Tie-gen,” but she’ll continue to use “Tee-gen” to avoid any confusion. She also told Giuliana Rancic that Ariana Grande’s last name is actually pronounced, “Grand-ee,” which is the bigger story.
