Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's Heartbreaking Loss of Babyby Laura Driver
Chrissy Teigan has suffered a miscarriage and has said she and husband John Legend are experiencing a "kind of pain we’ve never felt before" and are "shocked" after the loss of their baby boy.
The couple, who are already parents to four-year-old daughter Luna and two-year-old son Miles, announced they were expecting a third child in August. Chrissy and John have spoken publicly about their fertility issues and their third child was the first conceived without IVF.
On Tuesday, Chrissy had updated fans from hospital after being taken in on Sunday suffering from excessive bleeding. She reassured fans she and the baby were healthy sharing an update while preparing to have a second blood transfusion, writing on Instagram it "truly truly truly sounds more dramatic than it is".
However, earlier today she took to Instagram to issue a statement: "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."
Teigen shared the news alongside a heartbreaking black and white photo showing her crying while sitting up in her hospital bed. In another picture, she was seen cradling the baby while Legend leaned in.
She added: "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. 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."
Chrissy thanked everyone for their "positive energy, thoughts and prayers" and said her family will now spend time grieving. She said: "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 every day 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."
