Chrissy Teigen, who has normalized issues such as postpartum depression and infertility, revealed in an Instagram post on Wednesday that she experienced a devastating pregnancy loss.
“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 alongside a series of black-and-white photos of herself and her husband, John Legend, mourning at the hospital.
After sharing the news, Teigen was inundated with messages of support, but some found it necessary to call out Teigen for seeking attention.
“It’s kind of sick that when you loose (sic) a child you focus on snapping a good staged photo… Insane world,” one person commented.
This might be nothing new for a celebrity who’s used to the glare of a spotlight; but regular women who have suffered through pregnancy loss say that cruel comments are far too common.
