Chrissy Teigen spoke of the devastating news on Instagram today
She captioned several moving black and white photos with an explanation of what happened
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before.”
They announced in August that they were expecting a third child, a little boy
“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. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever.”
“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.”
She later posted “Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real.”
This past Sunday she was admitted to hospital for bleeding, but was undergoing blood transfusions. She assured fans that both she and her baby were healthy. However, “we were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed”.
“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.”
