Chrissy Teigen has announced that she has suffered a miscarriage.
The 34-year-old model said she and her husband John Legend have been left “shocked” in “deep pain” as she opened up about the devastating loss on Instagram.
Teigen, who had been documenting her pregnancy on social media, was taken to hospital on Sunday due to excessive bleeding.
Sharing the heartbreaking news of the baby’s death, she wrote: “We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before.”
Teigen, who has two other children with Legend, revealed the couple have called the baby Jack.
She added: “We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack. So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever.
“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.”

Teigen thanked everyone for their “positive energy, thoughts and prayers” and said her family will now spend time grieving.
She said: “We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. 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.”
Legend, a multi-award winning singer, shared his wife’s tweet and wrote: “We love you, Jack.” He added five black heart emojis.
Teigen and Legend, 41, have spoken publicly about their fertility issues and their third child was the first conceived without IVF.
