Chrissy Teigen and John Legend suffered a miscarriage, reflecting on the loss of their baby boy Jack.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend revealed several days ago that they were in the hospital for complications in Chrissy’s pregnancy, revealing that she had excessive bleeding. The doctors tried to get everything under control for their third baby to be delivered safely but, last night, the couple revealed that they were not able to stop the bleeding in time.
Chrissy and John were excited to raise to their third child, who they named Jack, but moments after he was born, the couple says that the baby stopped breathing as a result of Chrissy’s pregnancy complications.

We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. 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. . . 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. . . 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. . . Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you. . . We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But 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.
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” wrote Teigen on Instagram. “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.”
She continued her message by sending love to their baby Jack, before offering a heart-wrenching update on Twitter.
“Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real,” wrote the actress and model, reluctantly letting reality sink in.
