Chrissy Teigen and John Legend reveal heartbreaking news that they have lost their baby
Chrissy Teigen has revealed she and husband John Legend have lost their baby, days after she was admitted to the hospital with heavy bleeding.
The 34-year-old model shared the heartbreaking news on social media on Wednesday night, saying their little boy ‘Jack’ died following complications.
‘We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough,’ Teigan said.
Teigen was hospitalized on Sunday night after enduring a month of bleeding due to having a weak placenta and has remained at the hospital since.
She continued: ‘We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack.
So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever.’
Chrissy and John revealed in the music video for John’s new single Wild that they were expecting their third child together, a son.
In undoubtedly the most heartbreaking portion of Teigen’s caption, the model penned a message to her unborn son Jack.
‘To our Jack – I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you,’ she wrote.
‘Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you.
‘We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience.
But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it,’ concluded Chrissy.
Teigen and Legend, who wed in 2013, are parents to daughter Luna, four, and son Miles, two.
Shortly after uploading her undeniably sad news to Instagram, Chrissy took to her Twitter page to further express her shock.
‘Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real,’ she wrote.
The four photos uploaded to Chrissy’s Instagram paint a heartbreaking scene, with one of the pictures showing Chrissy crying and cradling Jack in her arms as John leaned next to them.
Another featured Chrissy sobbing as she held her hands to her face and sat at the edge of her hospital bed in nothing but a blanket and a bonnet.
