A lot of women choose not to take their husbands' last names after marriage, and Chrissy Teigen is one of them. If you're looking for a groundbreaking reason behind her decision, though, you won't find one. Chrissy recently weighed in after a tweet that reads, "I'd really like to hear the reasoning behind women who won't take their husband's last name," went viral.
I'd really like to hear the reasoning behind women who won't take their husband's last name— Big Money Mercy (@_MercyFul) August 20, 2017
my husband didn’t even take his last name? https://t.co/BMo6OsgcVv— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 22, 2018
As usual, Chrissy tweeted a hilarious response. "My husband didn't even take his last name?" She's right — in case you weren't aware, John Legend is actually the musician's stage name. His real name is John Stephens, which is why the couple's daughter, Luna Stephens, has that last name.
However, people on Twitter had a lot to say. Chrissy fired back by adding that she's not against taking last names at all, and it wasn't some "grand statement" not to. She also posed a great question: "Why do people care so much?"
the best part is, I am not anti-taking the last name at all. I was going to. just never got around to it and it isn't even the name he goes by. it wasn't some grand statement not to. I just don't see how the choice affects anyone else - why do people care so much!— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 22, 2018
You’ll never understand the simple reason of “because I don’t want to”? https://t.co/NrOvLr9UF7— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 22, 2018
