Model Chrissy Teigen and husband John Legend revealed the loss of their baby boy on Wednesday night (September 30). Teigen had a miscarriage after being hospitalized on Sunday (September 27) for excessive bleeding. The couple had already picked out the name Jack to join their two children Luna and Miles.
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” Teigen wrote in part. “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 continued, “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,” Teigen wrote. “We will always love you.”
Teigen and Legend first revealed they were expecting a child in Legend’s “Wild” video featuring Gary Clark Jr., which landed on the Ohio native’s 2020 Bigger Love album. She later slipped up and hinted she and JL would be having another baby boy. Their daughter Luna was born in 2016, and they had Miles two years later in 2018.
