# Surface area of an Ellipsoid [duplicate]

How do I compute the Surface area of an Ellipsoid? I tried this piece of code but the result is wrong

a = 0.496
c = 2
x := Ellipsoid[{0, 0, 0}, {a, a, c}]
RegionMeasure[x]

Out[1]= 2.06223


When it should actually be ~10. So what is RegionMeasure? And how do I get the surface area?
