It is indeed a dark day in the house of singer John Legend and wife Chrissy Teigen.
The couple were excited about ushering in a new addition to their little family of four. Unfortunately, the family will not be expanding as expected.
Chrissy Teigen announced the devastating news of her miscarriage earlier today on an Instagram post.
“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,” Chrissy wrote.
Some few days ago, Chrissy announced that she had a hospital visit to have her second blood transfusion. She assured that the baby and her were fine and that there was nothing to worry about.
The food enthusiast was on bedrest. All she missed was doing the little things like walking, cooking and playing with her two other children.
Chrissy revealed that this is the first pregnancy where they had the baby’s name all figured out unlike her last two.
“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,” she wrote.
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.”
Chrissy really appreciated those who reached out to show their support and love during this time. She is grateful for all the heartfelt messages and positive energy.
“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.”
The pain of losing a child is unimaginable. We pray that they get through this as one unit.
