In a devastating turn of events, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are mourning the loss of their son — only one month after announcing the pregnancy.
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” Chrissy Teigen wrote in a heartbreaking post on Instagram Wednesday.
Chrissy shared that their son, who they had named Jack, couldn’t survive complications.
The cookbook author was recently hospitalized for severe bleeding during her pregnancy, revealing to her followers that their baby boy was in the “danger zone.”
Previous to that, Chrissy had been ordered two weeks of bed rest. It was all because of her placenta causing her to bleed a lot, noting it makes it “just pretty high risk.” She told fans, “My placenta sucks. It’s always been kind of the bad part of my pregnancies.”
She went on to note that it caused complications for both her previous pregnancies, leading to her being induced both times.
This time around, the complications were too much.
“We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions,” She revealed. “It just wasn’t enough.”
The couple are parents to daughter Luna Simone, 4, and son Miles Theodore, 2.
“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 out eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it,” Chrissy continued in her 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. . . 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.
