Chrissy Teigen and John Legend lose their third child shortly after his birth
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are grieving as their newborn son has died shortly after his birth.
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday evening, September 30, Chrissy shared the heartbreaking news with fans.
The 34-year-old model, who was rushed to the hospital over the weekend after she started bleeding and had to undergo blood transfusions, explained that all that “wasn’t enough”.
Their third child, named Jack, was born but suffered complications and died.
Sharing photos of herself and John in the hospital with their newborn son, Chrissy wrote:
“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 bathe 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.”
