Chrissy Teigen and John Legend reveal heartbreaking news that they have lost their baby – Daily Mail

Chrissy Teigen has announced she and her husband John Legend have lost their baby, days after she was admitted to the hospital with severe bleeding. 

The model, 34, shared the heartbreaking news with a lengthy post and series of images on social media on Wednesday night, saying their little boy, ‘Jack’, has died following ‘so many complications’.   

Chrissy wrote 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’. 

The devastating post included five black and white photos taken at the hospital, showing Chrissy crying on her bed as well as a shot showing her and John cradling their son.  

On Monday, Chrissy, who already has daughter Luna, four, and son Miles, two, with her musician husband, 41, revealed she was on ‘serious bed rest’ due to bleeding and said she was ‘about halfway through’, which is around 20 – 24 weeks. A stillbirth is when a baby is born dead at 24 weeks or later.

In a heartbreaking addition to the post, Chrissy revealed that ‘for some reason’ she and John had begun calling their unborn baby boy, ‘Jack’ despite only naming their other kids after they were born.

She continued: ‘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.’ 

 ‘We are shocked’: The 34-year-old model also penned a lengthy caption explaining the tragedy and expressed her family’s grief over the sudden loss

Heartbreaking: Chrissy shared a lengthy caption detailing their loss 

Losing a baby past 24 weeks is a stillbirth rather than a miscarriage. If a baby dies before 24 completed weeks, it’s known as a miscarriage or late foetal loss. 

Shortly after breaking the tragic news to her followers, Teigen took to her Twitter page to further express her shock from the loss. 

‘Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real,’ she wrote.

The four photos uploaded to Chrissy’s Instagram paint a heartbreaking scene, with one of the pictures showing Chrissy crying and cradling Jack in her arms as John leaned next to them.

WHAT IS A STILLBIRTH?

A stillbirth occurs when a baby is born dead after 24 weeks of pregnancy. 

If a baby dies before 24 weeks of pregnancy, it is known as a miscarriage.

Not all stillbirths can be prevented, however, not smoking or drinking, as well as not sleeping on your back and attending all antenatal appointments can reduce the risk. 

What are the signs? 

Signs may include the baby not moving as much as normal.

Pregnant women should contact their doctor immediately if they notice a difference to their baby’s movement. 

What are the causes? 

Stillbirths do not always have an obvious cause but may occur due to complications with the placenta or a birth defect.

They are also more likely to occur if women suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes or an infection that affects the baby, such as flu. 

Stillbirths are more likely to occur if women are having twins or multiple pregnancies, are overweight, smoke, are over 35 or have a pre-existing condition, such as epilepsy.

What happens after a stillbirth? 

If a baby has died, women may wait for their labour to start naturally or they may be induced if their health is at risk. 

Bereavement support groups are available to parents who have suffered stillbirths.

Some find it helpful to name their baby or take pictures with them.

Another featured Chrissy sobbing as she held her hands to her face and sat at the edge of her hospital bed in nothing but a blanket and a bonnet. 

Teigen and Legend had revealed they were expecting their third child together in the music video for John’s new single, Wild, in August.

She had been hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Sunday night after enduring a month of bleeding due to having a weak placenta and had been at the hospital since.  

Grieving: ‘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,’ concluded Chrissy

Disbelief: Shortly after uploading her undeniably sad news to Instagram, Chrissy took to her Twitter page to further express her shock 

On Monday, she updated fans on her condition in an Instagram post, revealing she had received two blood transfusions and said: ‘Baby and I are completely fine.’

‘Hello from hospital. about to have my second blood transfusion which truly, truly, truly sounds more dramatic than it is,’ she said. 

‘It’s an IV, but instead of fluids, the blood of some kind human being out there. Baby and I are completely fine, just missing the little things like walking…cooking…playing with the other buttbutts.’

Teigen had already been on strict bed rest earlier this month but explained she was admitted to the hospital after her bleeding had worsened. 

Teigen – who is expecting her third child, a baby boy, with husband John Legend – was hospitalized on Sunday evening after a month of bleeding 

What is a blood transfusion? 

The NHS writes: ‘A blood transfusion is when you’re given blood from someone else (a donor). It’s a very safe procedure that can be lifesaving.

‘A blood transfusion may be needed if you have a shortage of red blood cells.

‘This may be because your body’s not making enough red blood cells or because you have lost blood.

‘For example, you may need a blood transfusion if you have

‘a condition that affects the way your red blood cells work – such as sickle cell disease or thalassaemia

‘a type of cancer or cancer treatment that can affect blood cells – including leukaemia, chemotherapy or stem cell transplants

‘severe bleeding – usually from surgery, childbirth or a serious accident

‘A blood transfusion can replace blood you have lost, or just replace the liquid or cells found in blood (such as red blood cells, plasma or cells called platelets)’ 

‘I’m about halfway through pregnancy and the blood has been going on for about a month, maybe a little bit less than a month. We’re talking about more than your period girls, it’s definitely not spotting. A lot of people spot but it’s usually fine. Mine was a lot,’ she added.  

‘Everytime I go to the bathroom it would be blood, and honestly just laying there there would be blood.’

Despite the scare, she assured her fans she and her baby were doing well and said the her son was ‘healthy, growing stronger than Luna or Miles.’  

‘He moves so much, so much earlier than they ever did. I’m so excited for him, he’s the strongest little dude. He’s the strongest coolest dude in the sh***iest house.’

‘So his house is like falling apart. It didn’t have a good foundation to begin with, he didn’t have the strongest chance at the very, very beginning so all we’re doing now is trying to make sure he has a lot of fluid around him and I’m resting as much as possible.’ 

Teigen and Legend wed in 2013.

After Chrissy announced the news, some of the couple’s closest friends, like Kim Kardashian and Gabrielle Union, voiced their condolences in the comment section.

‘We’re always here for you and love you guys so much,’ wrote Kim Kardashian, 39, who happens to share four children of her own with husband Kanye West, 43. 

Gabrielle Union, 47, made sure that Chrissy and John knew that her family would be there for them during this trying time. ‘We love you guys so much and we will be here for whatever yall need. Always,’ she commented.

Paris Hilton, who recently opened up about her own pregnancy plans, said that her ‘heart breaks for [Chrissy] and John. ‘I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you and your family so much love. Love you beautiful,’ wrote the 39-year-old heiress. 

Hailey Bieber expressed sympathy for John and Chrissy’s unfortunate situation in Chrissy’s Instagram comment section. The 23-year-old model, who is married to Justin Bieber, wrote: ‘I’m so so sorry. Thinking of you and John, praying for you guys and sending you so much love during this time.’

Channing Tatum let the couple know that he is ‘sending so much love to [them] right now,’ while Jersey Shore star Snooki informed Chrissy that she is ‘praying for [her] and [her] beautiful family.’

Take away the pain: Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who just became a dad for the first time with husband of seven-years Justin Mikita, 35, said that he wish he could ‘take away [Chrissy’s] heartbreak’

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who just became a dad for the first time with husband of seven-years Justin Mikita, 35, said that he wish he could ‘take away [Chrissy’s] heartbreak.’ 

John and Chrissy have been candid in the past about their journey with IVF and their fertility struggles. It took her several rounds of IVF before she got pregnant with her daughter, Luna, who was born in 2016.

She told The Cut in 2018 that she it was ‘devastating’ when her first round of IVF didn’t work, and she admitted to blaming herself. ‘You just look for anything to blame, especially yourself,’ she explained. ‘I think hearing stories is just really important. You realize there’s no right way to do it, or right way to react.

‘I don’t know. There’s no right way to do IVF. You just have to keep hoping that it will happen. It’s easy for some, and not for others. And that’s okay.’

Chrissy Teigen hospitalized after suffering bleeding during latest pregnancy – KABC-TV

LOS ANGELES — Chrissy Teigen has been hospitalized in Los Angeles after suffering heavy bleeding during her pregnancy.

The model and TV personality, who is expecting her third child with singer husband John Legend, was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Sunday, hours after complaining of being “so bored” stuck at home because of her latest pregnancy being ruled high-risk.

Host of “Lip Sync Battle” and mother to daughter Luna, 4, and son Miles, 2 — Teigen is sharing updates on her health complications, revealing that she had been bleeding a “little bit less than a month,” in a series of posts on Instagram.

“We all know I’ve been on bed rest for a few weeks and that’s like super serious bed rest. I get up to quickly pee and that’s it. I would take baths twice a week, no showering, just as little as possible,” she said from her hospital bed.

“But I was always, always bleeding. I’m about like halfway through pregnancy and the blood has been going on for like a month. Maybe a little bit less than a month. We’re talking about more than your period girls. It’s definitely not spotting. A lot of people spot and it’s usually fine. Mine was a lot.”

The 34-year-old Teigen went on to explain that she was admitted to the hospital after the bleeding worsened comparing it to ‘like if you were to turn a faucet onto low and leave it there.”

Teigen also urged fans not to diagnose her via social media and trust she has “very good doctors who know the entire story.”

The former Sports Illustrated cover star reassured fans that her baby boy’s health had not been impacted by the fact her “placenta is really, really weak,” adding: “So I feel really good, the baby’s so healthy. Growing stronger than Luna or Miles. He moves a lot, so much earlier than they ever did.”

“He’s so strong and I’m just so excited for him because he’s so wonderful and just the strongest little dude. I can’t wait for him.”

Teigen has been very open with her struggles getting pregnant. Both of her previous pregnancies have been through in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Chrissy Teigen Accidentally Reveals the Sex of Baby No. 3 With John Legend – E! NEWS

Chrissy Teigen Is Pregnant With Baby No. 3

Oops!

On Sept. 17, Chrissy Teigen took to Instagram Stories in what many followers assumed was going to be a casual check-in. But when some fans listened closely, they couldn’t help but notice a big reveal.

Ladies and gentlemen, Chrissy just revealed the sex of her third child with John Legend

“I wanted to update you,” the 34-year-old shared. “My placenta sucks. It’s always been kind of the bad part of my pregnancies with Luna. With Miles, it just stopped feeding him, it stopped taking care of him. I was stealing all his food because I was getting huge but he wasn’t getting big at all. He had to come out early and Luna had to come out early. I was induced both times. Anyways, it’s super weak. The baby is really, really healthy and he is big!”

Wait, did she just say ‘he?’ Yes, it’s going to be a boy!

“I am stupid,” Chrissy continued after covering her mouth and confirming she accidentally let the sex of her third child slip. “Anyway, so yeah its growing beautifully. Everything is good, I’m feeling good but my placenta is really, really weak and its causing me to really bleed a lot.”

Chrissy went on to say that her biggest priority at the moment is making sure her placenta is healthy again. As a result, she is continuing a two-week long best rest.

“I am on complete and total don’t get out except to pee pee bed rest,” she explained. “I just wanted to share that because I tell you guys everything and it’s such a bummer because I had to cancel so much work and I was really excited to talk to so many different people and do these events because it would start to feel like normal life again but the timing is just s–t and I apologize. I’m sorry. But I have to make baby okay.”

Back in August, Chrissy announced she was pregnant when appearing in her husband’s “Wild” music video

The final shot of the steamy visual project featured the Cravings author holding her growing belly with John standing behind her.

Instagram

As pop culture fans may recall, Chrissy first met John on the set of his “Stereo” music video in 2006. And as they like to say, the rest is history.  

Before concluding her latest Instagram Stories, Chrissy advised expectant moms to check with their doctors if they are experiencing similar situations. She also expressed appreciation for all her friends and fans who continue to support her family.

“Thank you for all your well wishes,” she shared before revealing a pregnancy craving. “And thank you for all the donuts.”

Chrissy Teigen reveals she started therapy because she’s an ’empath’ – Daily Mail

Chrissy Teigen is one of the most outspoken celebrities on social media who is not afraid to back down from a fight, even when it involves the president of the United States.

But underneath that grit is a soft soul, she told Marie Claire‘s Fall 2020 issue, which goes on newsstands September 10. That is why she has started therapy and is taking a break from social media.

‘People think I’m tough, but I’m such an empath, and I take on other people’s pain and sadness as my own. And when I let people down, I’m hyperaware of it,’ said the beauty who is pregnant with her third child. ‘Sometimes I feel like people aren’t going to be as hard on me as I am on myself.’

She has a big heart: Chrissy Teigen is one of the most outspoken celebrities on social media who is not afraid to back down from a fight, even when it involves the president of the United States. But underneath that grit is a soft soul, she told Marie Claire ‘s Fall 2020 issue

That is why she has hit the pause button on social media.

‘I’m barely online anymore, and that was at the request of my therapist,’ says Teigen, who has over 43 million collective followers across Twitter and Instagram.

‘So, it’s good for me to take a break.’

The wife of John Legend – with whom she already has children Miles and Luna – also said that she started therapy while under quarantine.

Hard stuff: ‘People think I’m tough, but I’m such an empath, and I take on other people’s pain and sadness as my own. And when I let people down, I’m hyperaware of it,’ said the beauty who is pregnant with her third child. ‘Sometimes I feel like people aren’t going to be as hard on me as I am on myself’

A break: And that means she is taking a break from social media. ‘I’m barely online anymore, and that was at the request of my therapist,’ says Teigen, who has over 43 million collective followers across Twitter and Instagram

‘I didn’t start therapy until quarantine. I used to avoid it and make fun of the idea of it, and then I found the person and it changed my world,’ admitted the supermodel.

The cover girl, who was photographed by Lauren Dukoff, also used her interview as an opportunity to talk about racism in the US.

The 34-year-old author, model, and lifestyle entrepreneur relayed a scary story from 2010 with John.

Therapy is new: ‘I didn’t start therapy until quarantine. I used to avoid it and make fun of the idea of it, and then I found the person and it changed my world,’ admitted the supermodel

Racism is still here: The cover girl, who was photographed by Lauren Dukoff, also used her interview as an opportunity to talk about racism in the US. The 34-year-old author, model, and lifestyle entrepreneur relayed a scary story from 2010 with John

‘We were in a nicer neighborhood at night, driving slowly, looking for John’s godmother’s home. These two guys were in a pickup truck slowly tailing us, flashing their lights and trying to speak to us,’ she said.

‘When we pulled over, they were like, ‘What are you guys looking for?’ and we gave them the address.

 ‘They literally said, “Get your asses out of here!” and proceeded to follow us all the way into her driveway. They got out of the car and stared at us as we knocked on the door and went inside. It was a terrible, scary experience.’

And now the Victoria’s Secret model has to teach her kids how to deal with the trauma black people are facing in the US.

Her little ones: Though she is not often on social media any longer she did post a shot of kids Miles and Luna in her kitchen this week

Worried about raising her kids in the US: ‘There are books that I read when I became a mom that would explain to them hard and traumatic situations. But it’s really hard to teach them about their privilege; there are no books for that. But regardless of money or status, they’re always going to have their skin color,’ she said

‘There are books that I read when I became a mom that would explain to them hard and traumatic situations. But it’s really hard to teach them about their privilege; there are no books for that. But regardless of money or status, they’re always going to have their skin color,’ added the cookbook author.

She wore red for her Marie Claire cover

Teigen added that when it comes to them being treated differently because of the color of their skin, she is going to look to John for ‘a lot of help with that’ because while they are ‘Asian and white too, their skin color is Black.’

‘We just try to talk to them like little adults, saying it in words they’ll understand, making it known that it’s very serious, and letting them ask as many questions as they need,’ she said.

And Chrissy, who has long expressed her dislike of Trump, was happy to reveal she is voting for Biden.  

‘We are proud to stand behind Biden,’ said the Vogue model.

‘We’re not only voting for Biden because it’s not Trump. We’re voting for him because we think he’s going to do an incredible job of bringing a bit of healing to the country. We are a divided, hurt nation that needs to be brought back together. 

Chrissy also likes that he has ’empathy, and under- standing.’

And she then explained: ‘I also look at a presidential candidate as someone I want my kids to be able to look up to. I don’t see that in Donald Trump or any of his family.’  

Happy at last: The stars seen here on social media in August; they wed in 2013 in Italy

The choice of Kamala Harris as a Vice President pick also pleases her: ‘I could not be more thrilled about Biden’s VP pick! 

‘Women all over the world are seeing a piece of them in a woman of power, and that kind of influence is paramount in what we need to continue this future of badass women in politics. Between people like Kamala and AOC, I have more hope than ever.’

Teigen doesn’t only model. She has Cravings by Chrissy Teigen and Suit & Thai Productions, her production company, which has a first-look deal with Hulu, and the second season of Quibi series Chrissy’s Court with her mom, Pepper.

Chrissy Teigen Cradles Her Baby Bump in First Outing Since Pregnancy Announcement – E! NEWS

Chrissy Teigen Is Pregnant With Baby No. 3

Chrissy Teigen is one hot mama!

On Thursday, Aug. 13, the star stepped out to run some errands in a chic black blazer, top and bike shorts, which she paired with strappy sandals.

According to an eyewitness, the pregnant star stopped to take a breather and rubbed her growing belly.

The sighting comes just hours after she and husband John Legend announced they are expecting their third child. The famous couple made the big reveal in John’s new music video for his song, “Wild,” in which Chrissy subtly shows off a tiny bump.

John played coy about the moment in the YouTube premiere, only saying that the music videos they’ve done together are “chronicling our family’s growth and our journey.” He remarked, “We’re so happy that this video is the next chapter.”

And though the pair didn’t explicitly said announce she’s pregnant, a source confirmed they will soon be a family of five.

Later that day, Chrissy took to her Instagram Story to marvel at her baby bump. As she posed in leggings and just a blazer, she remarked, “Look at this third baby s–t. Oh my god.”
