CHRISSY SPEAKS OUT ABOUT THEIR GRIEF AND SHUTS DOWN TROLL MESSAGES
Chrissy Teigen and husband, John Legend, recently shared the tragic news of the pregnancy complications which led them to lose their baby boy, Jack.
Throughout her pregnancy, Chrissy had been posting regular updates online, detailing the complications she was unfortunately facing. She was around 20 weeks and tragically had to say goodbye to her son due to complications with his placenta.
The brave couple chose to share their grief with the world alongside a series of intimate photos taken in the hospital as they said goodbye.
However, in this grieving time, trolls have been leaving cruel messages on the star's social media accounts following their decision in sharing the intimate photos.
Now, the model spoke out in greater depth about what she's been going through.
Chrissy thanked her fans and supporters for their kind words during this intensely difficult time. "After a couple nights at the hospital, my doctor told me exactly what I knew was coming – it was time to say goodbye. He [Jack] just wouldn’t survive this, and if it went on any longer, I might not either. We had tried bags and bags of blood transfusions, every single one going right through me like we hadn’t done anything at all. Late one night, I was told it would be time to let go in the morning."
The star responded to the people who went out of their way to write cruel messages on her social media accounts about their story. She added that her husband, John, was reluctant to capture their pain at first, but that she knew she "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."
"I cannot express how little I care that you hate the photos. How little I care that it’s something you wouldn’t have done. I lived it, I chose to do it, and more than anything, these photos aren’t for anyone but the people who have lived this or are curious enough to wonder what something like this is like. These photos are only for the people who need them. The thoughts of others do not matter to me."
She also took the time to share the heartbreaking details of the birth and wrote that she has been experiencing an array of emotions ever since. "I find myself randomly crying, thinking about how happy I am to have two insanely wonderful little toddlers who fill this house with love."
She ends her post by again thanking the people who have sent their well wishes to the couple and explains that writing about her loss is cathartic. "I wrote this because I knew for me I needed to say something before I could move on from this and return back to life, so I truly thank you for allowing me to do so. Jack will always be loved, explained to our kids as existing in the wind and trees and the butterflies they see."
