Chrissy Teigen and husband John Legend are ‘shocked’ and in ‘deep pain’ after she suffered a miscarriage yesterday.
Teigen revealed the news on Instagram.
The 34-year-old had been taken to hospital suffering from excessive bleeding. She wrote: “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.”
Teigen and Legend had decided to name the baby boy Jack. The couple announced their pregnancy in August.
“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,” Teigen wrote.
Along with a statement, Teigen also shared a number of photos on Instagram, showing she, Legend and baby Jack in the hospital.
Teigen thanked fans for their support and well-wishes, and said she is ‘so grateful’ for their family. Teigen and Legend have two older children, four-year-old Luna and two-year-old Miles.
“Everyday 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,” Teigen concluded.
