Chrissy Teigen and John Legend recently released the sad news about their pregnancy complication which resulted in losing their baby.
The model and cookbook author, Chrissy Teigen, shared the news late Wednesday that she and her husband, singer John Legend lost their third child which was reported to be a son. The couple released the news only days after she posted on social media about suffering pregnancy complications.
"Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real," Chrissy revealed on Twitter.
Chrissy shared a black-and-white photograph on Twitter and Instagram sitting on a hospital bed with her hands clasped in a prayer-like position. She also shared another photo on Instagram which shows her holding her baby as John kisses her shoulder.
Other celebrities, such as the former first lady Michelle Obama, singers Beyoncé and Celine Dion, actresses Brooke Shields and Kirstie Alley and the actors Hugh Jackman and James Van Der Beek shared their experiences of such loss.
"What nobody tells you is that miscarriage happens all the time, to more women than you'd ever guess, given the relative silence around it," Mrs Obama wrote in "Becoming", her 2018 memoir.
She continued "I learned this only after I mentioned that I'd miscarried to a couple of friends, who responded by heaping me with love and support and also their own miscarriage stories."
Chrissy was believed to have been halfway along in her pregnancy and slipped the news that she was expecting a baby boy.
Chrissy was hospitalised on Sunday due to excessive bleeding from her placenta, and she also posted a picture of a blood transfusion pamphlet.
Chrissy shared in an emotional post that she and her husband had not decided on their other two children's names until just before they left the hospital.
Chrissy previously shared that "On punishment for saying the first two pregnancies were easy peasy."
"Huge clot, almost save-worthy. The scramble to hear the heartbeat seemed like hours. I never thought I'd relief sigh so much in my liiiiife." She also shared that despite many blood transfusions, her baby had not been able to get the fluids he needed.
"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we've never felt before," she wrote.
"On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out," she added. "But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it."
