Model Chrissy Teigen nearly broke the Internet today revealing the correct pronunciation of her last name!

“Extra’s” Renee Bargh and Adam Glassman spoke with her hubby John Legend on the red carpet of the Emmys, where they discussed her last name. John said, “We knew her father still calls himself Tie-gen, and the original Norwegian pronunciation is Tie-gen.”

“She professionally embraced Tei-gen because she got tired of correcting people,” Legend pointed out.

Legend recently signed on as a judge on “The Voice.” Of his new gig, he said, “I’m excited for that. I have known Adam [Levine] for a long time — since before I was famous. I worked with Kelly [Clarkson] on ‘Duets’ from back in the day and I love her. She is one of my favorite singers.”

As for his family with Chrissy, it looks like they could be expanding after welcoming baby Miles and big sister Luna. He said, “I think we want at least one more... we will see.”
