In previous news, Briefly.co.za reported on the moment Chrissy Teigen and John Legend first revealed that they had suffered from a pregnancy loss.
American celebrity couple, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, were recently thrown into grief and mourning after they lost their unborn child. The couple, who had been looking forward to the birth of their third baby, took to social media to share the sad news of his demise.
It was gathered that little Jack, as he was fondly called by his parents, could not survive due to pregnancy complications.
The grieving mother, Chrissy, took to her Instagram page to pen down a lengthy and touching note on what his loss meant to them as they also thanked friends, fans and family for their support.
Chrissy said that they were shocked and in deep pain over the loss of their son. She added that they were never able to stop the bleeding or give the baby the fluids he needed.
The young mother wrote further on how they had started to call the child in her belly Jack even though they named their other kids after their birth. According to her, he will always be Jack to them and be a part of their family forever.
The singer’s wife then continued the note by apologising to their unborn child for facing complications so early in life and she thanked friends and family who stood by them. She captioned the post with the words:
“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. We will always love you.”
