Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have sadly lost their third child following pregnancy complications. The actress and her lyrical genius husband, John Legend, shared the sad news on social media.

Teigen (34) was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last week following health complications. She revealed that she had been on bed rest and she had been bleeding for just under a month.

After being admitted, Teigen took to Instagram to update concerned fans. “We all know I’ve been on bed rest for a few weeks and that’s like super serious bed rest. I get up to quickly pee and that’s it. I would take baths twice a week, no showering, just as little as possible,” she said from her hospital bed.

“But I was always, always bleeding. I’m about like halfway through pregnancy and the blood has been going on for like a month. Maybe a little bit less than a month. We’re talking about more than your period girls. It’s definitely not spotting. A lot of people spot and it’s usually fine. Mine was a lot.”

Teigen compared the blood loss to turning on a tap and putting it on low and leaving it to run. The model turned host has been very open with her past pregnancy struggles and how she underwent IVF to carry and give birth to daughter Luna (4) and son Miles (2).

Their third baby, who they had already named Jack, was conceived naturally. Teigen didn’t believe this would happen for her due to her past struggles. She was halfway through her pregnancy with Jack when she miscarried.

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

“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 statement concluded: “But everyday 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.”
