Chrissy Teigen lost her third baby last year due to pregnancy complications
On the occasion of National Son’s day on Tuesday, September 28, Chrissy Teigen penned down a heart-wrenching message to the baby she lost a year ago due to pregnancy complications. The supermodel wrote her heart out expressing her pain and suffering that she had experienced through this year. “And to the son we almost had. A year ago you gave me the greatest pain I could ever imagine to show me I could survive anything, even if I didn’t want to,” she wrote along with a picture of herself crying as husband John Legend comforted her in a hospital room after the traumatic loss.
Teigen further added, “I didn’t get to take care of you but you came and went to get me to love myself and take care of myself because our bodies are precious and life is a miracle. They told me it would get easier but yeah, that hasn’t started yet. Mom and dad love you forever.” Throughout her third pregnancy, Chrissy kept her followers updated on the whole process. However, a year ago from today, on September 27, the ‘Cravings’ author was admitted to the hospital while she was just 20 weeks pregnant due to some complications, and almost 3 days after that on September 30, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend revealed that they had lost their baby, a son named Jack, due to continual bleeding from a weakened placenta.
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” Chrissy wrote in an Insta post. “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.” She added, “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.” John and Chrissy were devastated for a long time, and throughout the span of this 1 year, the 35-year-old model has been open about her struggles.
Most recently, in August, Teigen during the promotion of her third cookbook talked about being “slightly down” for some time while thinking of a caption for her cookbook and almost beginning it with “my third baby is here!” She continued “I realized I threw myself into the book to not think of the real, actual third baby,” However, Chrissy Teigen had put up a very strong fight with the struggles after losing her third baby last year.
Chrissy and John also share two kids with each other, a daughter, Luna, 5, and a son Miles, 3. And well the mother of two certainly did not forget to honor her 1st son on National Son’s day.
Teigen shared a thread of some extremely cute pictures of Miles earlier that day and captioned it, “crap if he grows up and sees I posted for daughter’s day and not son’s, will he be mad? are these going to be the grievances our kids have?? anyhow I love you so much, son!!” At the same time, dad John Legend did not forget to show off his son on Insta with a black and white portrait. “I don’t know who’s declaring these national days but I’ve got Miles pics and I’m posting one. I’m trying to be this smooth when I grow up. #nationalsonsday” he captioned it.
