Chrissy Teigen’s recent announcement that she’d suffered a second-trimester pregnancy loss shocked her fans, not just because the news was devastating but because of the heartbreaking photographs and caption she shared to social media.
The model, who was expecting her third child with singer John Legend, had been giving her 32 million Instagram followers regular updates about her complicated pregnancy, including details of her recent hospitalization and needing two blood transfusions.
And then, on Wednesday night, she posted four black-and-white images that laid bare the pain of her loss and the physically taxing process of childbirth, along with a note to the “little guy” she and Legend named Jack.
“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,” she wrote. “We will always love you.”
