Chrissy Teigen shared heartbreaking news that she and husband John Legend had lost their third child through miscarriage.
The model shared the news on Instagram and Twitter today after she had been in and out of hospital in recent days.
She also revealed they had already named their third child Jack.
“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.
“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. We will always love you.”
Legend wrote on his Twitter account, “We love you, Jack”.
Teigen shortly posted a follow up tweet, simply saying, “Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real”.
Just two days ago Teigen had shared how she had experienced a “really scary morning”.
“Huge clot, almost save-worthy. The scramble to hear the heartbeat seemed like hours. I never thought I’d relief sigh so much in my liiiiife,” she wrote on Twitter.
On Instagram on the same day she posted a photo from New Year’s Eve and assured fans her and Jack were fine.
“hello from hospital. about to have my second blood transfusion which truly truly truly sounds more dramatic than it is,” she wrote.
“It’s an IV, but instead of fluids, the blood of some kind human being out there. Baby and I are completely fine, just missing the little things like walking…cooking…playing with the other buttbutts. came across this little gem from ringing in 2020. It all makes sense now!”
Teigen has been posting photos from her bedroom throughout her pregnancy, on “bed rest” for a number of weeks.
On September 18 she said she had a “poopy placenta”.
“I’m feeling really good, but my placenta’s really, really weak, and it’s causing me to really bleed a lot,” she said.
“We’re talking more than your period, girls.”
She has previously had problems with her placenta, during her pregnancies with Luna and Miles.
Both were born early and she had to be induced both times.
