Meghan Markle Reached Out to Chrissy Teigen Following the Loss of Her Son Jack
Trigger warning: This article discusses miscarriage.
Last year, Chrissy Teigen and Meghan Markle both spoke publicly about their tragic experiences with miscarrying a child.
Teigen chose to share the event publicly across social media with a series of heartbreaking images, as well as a Medium article documenting her experience and thanking people for the kindness they showed to her.
Markle, who lost her second pregnancy, wrote a moving piece for the New York Times entitled The Losses We Share, speaking her truth about her miscarriage while discussing how unbearably common it is.
Now, Teigen has revealed that the Duchess of Sussex reached out to her after the loss of baby Jack.
On the Watch What Happens Live! After Show Teigen commented on how kind Markle had been to her ever since they connected.
“She had written me about baby Jack,” she said. “She is really wonderful and so kind — just as kind as everyone says she is.”
Continuing, she refuted the negative perception of the former Suits star that seems to be continuously pushed by British tabloids.
“That’s why you look at everything and you’re like ‘My God, what is absolutely wrong with people that they have to make this person out to be so malicious or so crazy?’ when it’s just as simple as them being as kind as everyone says they are.”
It seems that the relationship is completely reciprocated, with Teigen sharing with the show that she’d spoken to Meghan following the latter’s tell-all interview with Oprah — you know the one.
Teigen confessed she was “waiting a long time to watch it”, but that when she did, her response included “Holy sh*t this is big.”
And yes, Teigen is very much #TeamMeghan.
“I think she’s been very honest [and] open,” she said of the duchess, and that “her truth has been her truth since the very beginning.”
