Cookbook author and model Chrissy Teigen has in a painful post, said that she and her husband, John Legend, had lost their third child, a son, days after she posted on social media about suffering pregnancy complications.
“Driving home from the hospital with no baby, How can this be real, she posted.
34-year-old Teigen was hospitalized on Sunday because of excessive bleeding from her placenta.
In an emotional post, Teigen wrote on Wednesday that she and her husband, Legend, had not decided on their other two children’s names until just before they left the hospital. The couple have one daughter, Luna, 4, and a son, Miles, 2.
“But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack,” she said. “So he will always be Jack to us.”
Two weeks ago, Ms. Teigen wrote that she had been placed on bed rest because of pregnancy complications. “On punishment for saying the first two pregnancies were easy peasy,” she joked.
On Tuesday, Ms. Teigen wrote on Twitter that she had just experienced a “really scary morning.”
“Huge clot, almost save-worthy,” she wrote. “The scramble to hear the heartbeat seemed like hours. I never thought I’d relief sigh so much in my liiiiife.”
Ms. Teigen wrote on Wednesday that despite many blood transfusions, her baby had not been able to get the fluids he needed.
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” she wrote.
“On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out,” she added. “But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.”
Later on Wednesday, Mr. Legend wrote on Twitter, “We love you, Jack,” followed by five black hearts.
