Celebrities Send Love to Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Following Pregnancy Loss
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are mourning the loss of Teigen’s pregnancy. The Cravings author has been vocal about her pregnancy since announcing it in Legend’s “Wild” music video in August, revealing she was experiencing complications with her “weak” placenta. Those complications led to the star being hospitalized due to excessive bleeding. And on Sept. 30, Teigen shared a heartbreaking Instagram post revealing she had lost the baby, affectionately named Jack.
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about,” Teigen wrote in her caption. “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.”
The photos in the 34-year-old’s post showed her crying on her hospital bed, receiving an epidural before giving birth, Teigen and Legend embracing in her hospital room, and the tearful parents holding baby Jack after birth. She also shared the post on Twitter, which Legend retweeted writing, “We love you, Jack.”
