Former model and wife to singer John Legend, Chrissy Teigen is feeling the pain of loss. Teigen revealed to the world on social media that she lost her baby boy during her pregnancy whom had already been named.
Teigen was left devastated as her baby whom she named Jack passed away. Excessive blood loss faired too much during Teigen’s pregnancy. It never gave up. The infant never overcame these troubles, and passed away. The baby was lacking vital nutrients, and the end result was the loss of what would have been the couple’s third child. On her way home from the hospital after being discharged, Chrissy wrote on Twitter:
In her consistently losing blood, Teigen pointed out that her baby was in the red zone as she was half way through her pregnancy and losing a lot of blood. In a recent post, she said:
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 previously said her baby’s health has not been impacted. She said at the time that her baby was very active in the womb compared to her other kids. It appears that the reality of blood loss took the toll on the baby. Teigen said:
We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before.
Speaking on how she decided to name the baby- the former model said:
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.
Teigen who has two kids with her husband, John Legend recognizes her blessing in having them saying:
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.
It is no secret that Teigen has had challenges in getting pregnant. Both her current children were conceived through in-vitro fertilization. Teigen’s third pregnancy reportedly came about naturally with her husband. Sadly, she lost her baby due to complications said to be surrounded by consistent blood loss.
