Chrissy Teigen and John Legend suffered a terrible loss last year. In October the couple lost their third child, a baby boy named Jack. Teigen was diagnosed with partial placenta abruption and had to deliver her son at just 20 weeks. Sadly, baby Jack did not survive.
Teigen has been very public about the loss in the time since, sharing pictures from the unfortunate day in hopes of inspiring healing and hope to women suffering through the same thing. Shortly after losing Jack she said in an Instagram post “I had asked my mom and John to take pictures, no matter how uncomfortable it was. I explained to a very hesitant John that I needed them, and that I did NOT want to have to ever ask. That he just had to do it. He hated it. I could tell. It didn’t make sense to him at the time. But I knew I needed to know of this moment forever, the same way I needed to remember us kissing at the end of the aisle, the same way I needed to remember our tears of joy after Luna and Miles. And I absolutely knew I needed to share this story.”
Today she took to social media again to share some stories from her pregnancy. Sharing behind the scenes pictures from her husband’s recent video “Wild”, she revealed that she was 10 weeks into her pregnancy during the shoot. “These are from our video shoot for Wild in Mexico. I was 10 weeks along and out of my mind happy. I knew the video would take a bit to get together so thought it would be cute to share our news with the world through the ol classic hand on belly trick at the end. I could have never imagined what would happen over the next 10 weeks…not sure I’ll ever be able to watch that video again without sobbing but I hope he feels my tears and knows we miss him so.”
Teigen continued, sharing that she regrets not looking her late son in the face when he was delivered. “He would have been here any day now – if he were like Luna and Miles, I’d probably be holding him as we speak. I am so full of regret that I didn’t look at his face when he was born. I was so scared of seeing him in my nightmares that I forgot about seeing him in my dreams. I hurt every day from that remorse.”
In November Teigen got a tattoo to honor her son Jack. She shared an image of her wrist with the name “Jack” tattooed across it on her social media platforms.
