Chrissy Teigen shared a post on social media revealing that she and Legend had lost their third child due to excessive bleeding. Chrissy and Legend announced that they were expecting their third child in August, revealing the news in the music video for Legend’s single “Wild”.
In her long post on Instagram, the model wrote, “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.
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. 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 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.”
Following the post, many of their friends have taken to social media to express their sympathy and show support including Gabrielle Union and Kim Kardashian.
In the replies, her celebrity friends responded with love and support.
Kim Kardashian: “We’re always here for you and love you guys so much.”
Gabrielle Union: “We love you guys so much and we will be here for whatever y’all need. Always.”
Paris Hilton: “My heart breaks for you and John. I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you and your family so much love. Love you beautiful.”
Hailey Bieber: “I’m so sorry. Thinking of you and John, praying for you guys and sending you so much love during this time.”
The couple has two children, Luna (4) and Miles (2).
