Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Announce Loss of Pregnancy
"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we've never felt before"
Published Oct 01, 2020Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are mourning the loss of their unborn son after complications with Teigen's pregnancy resulted in a miscarriage last night (September 30).
"Driving home from the hospital with no baby," Teigen tweeted. "How can this be real."
Teigen revealed that doctors weren't able to stop the excessive bleeding for which she was admitted to hospital in September, "despite bags and bags of blood transfusions."
"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we've never felt before," Teigen wrote.
"We never decide on our babies' names until the last possible moment after they're born, just before we leave the hospital," she continued. "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."
Teigen signed off thanking everyone who has sent "positive energy, thoughts and prayers" during the couple's time of need. "We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you," she wrote.
Teigen was admitted to hospital last month for excessive bleeding from the placenta after being put on bed rest for her high-risk pregnancy earlier in September. The couple announced that they were expecting back in August.
They are parents to two children, Luna Simone and Miles Theodore.
