Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have lost their baby following pregnancy complications, announced the couple on their social media accounts.
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” said the statement posted to each their Twitter accounts.
Teigen, a model and TV personality, was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre on Sunday after revealing that she had been on bed rest and bleeding for “little less than a month”.
“We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions,” the post said. “It just wasn’t enough.”
The statement added that with the first two pregnancies, the couple had waited to name the baby until after delivering, but this time they had already begun calling “the little guy in my belly” Jack.
“He will always be Jack to us,” the statement said. “Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever.”
The couple have two children, Luna and Miles, who they have said were both conceived through in vitro fertilization. But this pregnancy happened naturally, something Teigen said she didn’t think was possible for her.
Teigen and Legend have expressed gratitude for their children and the experiences they had had.
