Teigen shared the heartbreaking post Wednesday night about the loss of their baby after complications during pregnancy put her in the hospital.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are mourning an absolutely devastating loss, which Teigen shared with her fans who’ve been following her recent pregnancy complications via Instagram.
In her latest post she shared a picture of herself sitting her hospital bed with tears rolling down her cheeks, having lost their unborn child to those complications. “We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions,” she wrote. “It just wasn’t enough.”
The couple shared images of them holding their son together in his last moments and ultimately, Teigen tweeted, “Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real?”
Condolences and messages of love and support immediately began pouring in from Hollywood as celebrities and fans shared in the couple’s grief.
Teigen also revealed in her post that unlike in her previous pregnancies — she and Legend have a daughter, Luna, and son, Miles, together — they actually had a name in mind for this son.
“We, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack,” she wrote. “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.”
She then shared a message to Jack, adding, “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.”
To her fans, Teigen 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.”
Remarkably, considering the pain in her heart, she nevertheless tried to close her sentiments on an uplifting and appreciative note.
“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,” she wrote. “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.”
Sunny Hostin, who has also lost a baby to miscarriage, shared her condolences while also praising Teigen for being so open about her experience. “You are helping so many women by talking about what we suffer in silence,” she wrote.
Both Teigen and Legend had a slew of comments from so many of their famous friends on Instagram, sharing their condolences and sending up prayers in support of the family at this difficult time.
