Very sad news. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are mourning the loss of their third child.
Chrissy posted a long emotional message on Instagram, with a series of heartbreaking black & white photos:
We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, 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.
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.
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.
After experiencing heavy bleeding, Chrissy, mother to Luna and Miles was admitted to the hospital last weekend.
“Today the big difference was that it kind of was like if you were to turn a faucet onto low and leave it there,” she said. “It was at the point today where it was never stopping bleeding and that’s obviously very bad.”
Chrissy explained her condition: “In the simplest of terms, we can say my placenta is really, really weak.”
John simply posted on Twitter “We love you Jack.”
We love you, Jack ????? https://t.co/ySFzJB5e6k
