Model Chrissy Teigen suffers miscarriage after pregnancy complications

LOS ANGELES (NYTIMES) – Model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen said late on Wednesday (Sept 30) that she and her husband, musician John Legend, had lost their baby, a son, days after she posted on social media about suffering pregnancy complications.

“Driving home from the hospital with no baby,” Teigen wrote on Twitter. “How can this be real.”

Teigen, 34, had been hospitalised a few days earlier, and posted about a “scramble to hear the heartbeat.”

In an emotional Instagram post to her 31 million followers, Teigen wrote on Wednesday that despite many blood transfusions, her baby had not been able to get the fluids he needed.

“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” she wrote.

It was not clear how far along she was in the pregnancy, but last month, Teigen accidentally let it slip that she was expecting a baby boy.

She and Legend are the parents of one daughter, Luna, four, and a son, Miles, two.

Teigen said in her post they had not decided on their other children’s names until just before they left the hospital.

“But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack,” she wrote. “So he will always be Jack to us.”

On Wednesday, Legend, 41, wrote on Twitter “We love you, Jack,” followed by five black hearts.

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.  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.
