Chrissy Teigen Suffers A Miscarriage, People Support Her And Say She Helped Other Mothers Feel Less Alone

Chrissy Teigen has just announced she and her husband John Legend have suffered a miscarriage, days after she was admitted to the hospital with severe bleeding.

The 34-year-old model and TV personality shared the heartbreaking news with a lengthy post and a series of black and white photos on social media on Wednesday night. She said the couple’s little boy, Jack, has died following complications.

“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” Teigen wrote. “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 couple has two children, Luna and Miles, who were both conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF). This pregnancy, however, happened naturally, something Teigen didn’t think was possible for her in the first place.

Though she was open about her struggles of getting pregnant, Teigen recently stated that IVF pregnancies felt “untouchable and safe” and that this pregnancy made her feel “eggshelly.”

Teigen was about halfway through her pregnancy and bleeding significantly, she said earlier this week. She asked fans not to diagnose her, revealing that her placenta was “really, really weak.”

The couple expressed their gratitude for their children and the experiences they have had. “But every day can’t be full of sunshine,” they said. “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.”

People expressed their support for the couple and some even shared similar stories of their own

When my best friend was in the hospital dying from blood clots that cut off oxygen to her brain her boyfriend posted her condition in a series of facebook updates, because that was his largest social network and he didn't want the heart ache of telling every single person from her job, family, friends etc what had happened and what was going on individually, having to relieve the pain each time. Also it made it easy to keep people informed without having to take much time away from her. So people really need to stop judging Chrissy as an "attention whore" here for posting about her baby's death. Its likely a way to stem the questions from people over the next couple of months about what happened to the baby and which will dredge up these horrible memories each time as well as starting a conversation with other women who have been through the same thing and who can share how they felt and coped. Its like an online support group.

Thank you, I was too quick to judge, not as attention whore per se, but I'd think this would be a private matter only for their families and close friends. It's not really, when both are in the entertainment industry and it would come up on interviews down the line. Also possibly help other families in the same situation, terrible things happen to the rich and famous as well

If sharing her experience on social media helps her to cope in any way shape or form I really don't see the problem with it, maybe YOU wouldn't do it/can't imagine doing it but honestly is it really hurting anyone?...If anything it's probably helping someone, yeah there are probably people that are going to say negative things about her choice to share such a personal story but I really don't see why and it's really nobody's problem but hers anyway...if she even considers someone's negative opinion a problem.

The death of a child, regardless of age, is a devastating event in anyone's life. Not only do you lose a child you love, you lose the future, so much lost, so much undone, so much unseen. The child is sheltered in your heart always. So many "if only's."
