Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are going through a very difficult time after the couple revealed that their unborn son, Jack, had lost his life in hospital.
Chrissy Teigen confirms losing her unborn son
Teigen was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday after she had spotted “a huge blood clot, almost save-worthy”.
“The scramble to hear the heartbeat seemed like hours. I never thought I’d relief sigh so much in my life,” the star shared on Twitter.
Teigen spent the week under observation and on Thursday, she delivered the terrible news of her unborn son’s death. On Twitter, the 34-year-old revealed that she had been discharged from hospital “with no baby.”
Her open letter to Jack
She also took to Instagram to pen an open letter to her stillborn, describing her loss as “the kind of deep pain you only hear about.”
“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,” Teigen wrote.
The 34-year-old sent her last tribute to Jack, apologising for the agony the stillborn must have endured in the short period of his existence.
“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,” Teigen continued.
Her husband, Legend, has gone on a social media blackout since the untimely news broke on the internet.
In the couple’s darkest hour, they have received a lot of support from their peers and global fanbase and Teigen recognised that, saying:
“Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all your love and truly appreciate you,” she wrote.
Our deepest condolences to Teigen, Legend and their family for the loss of their unborn child.
