After a tough first trimester and multiple hospital stays, Chrissy Teigen has shared the incredibly sad news that she has suffered a miscarriage.
"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," her Instagram post began.
"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."
She ended the post by sharing her thanks to all those who had supported her, husband John Legend and the family over the last few months, as well as expressing how grateful they were to have their two wonderful babies, "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."
On Sept. 27, Chrissy Teigen shared Instagram Stories from a hospital room explaining that she had been hospitalised due to a weak placenta reason. "I'm about halfway through pregnancy and the blood has been going on . . . maybe a little bit less than a month. But we're talking more than your period . . . I guess in the simplest of terms we can say my placenta is really, really weak."
Earlier this week, Chrissy tweeted about ongoing difficulties with the pregnancy: "Just had a really scary morning Weary face huge clot, almost save-worthy. The scramble to hear the heartbeat seemed like hours. I never thought I'd relief sigh so much in my liiiiife."
The couple revealed they were expecting their third child early this year in the music video for John's song "Wild". The news came as a surprise to the pair themselves as both Luna and Miles we conceived through IVF treatments.
Sending all our love to Chrissy, John and the family.
