John Legend and wife Chrissy
Singer John Legend and Wife, Chrissy Teigen are mourning after losing their baby boy just moments after birth as a result of medical complications.
Chrissy shared a heartbreaking post on Instagram Tuesday night announcing that she had lost her baby.
The news came after the model was hospitalized due to excessive bleeding.
The couple already have two children together and were expecting their third child, who they had already named Jack.
“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,” Teigen wrote:
“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.”
Teigen and husband John Legend announced they were expecting their third child in August. The couple, who have been married since 2013, revealed the news through Legend’s music video for “Wild.” Teigen was put on bed rest by her doctor for two weeks in early September.
