On Thursday 1 October, Chrissy Teigen shared a post on social media revealing that she and Legend had suffered the loss of their child after excessive bleeding during pregnancy. The images shared along with the posts were heartbreaking and a painful yet important reminder for many parents that have previously experienced miscarriage and baby loss.
Well known celebrities including the likes of Chanum Tating and Kim Kardashian West have expressed sympathy for Chrissy Teigen and John Legend following the news of their recent pregnancy loss on 1st October.
Chrissy wrote that they are “shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before”, sharing a series of black-and-white photographs of herself and her husband in hospital.
“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,” the 34-year-old said.
“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.”
Although we are unsure how far along Chrissy was, it is estimated that she was around 20 weeks pregnant with her little boy they named Jack.
