And following the loss, the pair have been pretty silent on their social media while they grieve.

The star released a personal essay on losing her son.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are Hollywood's sweethearts and long-standing idols in the parenting community.
via: GettyThe pair got together over a decade ago and have gone from strength to strength ever since.
After 4 years of dating, John was down on one knee...
The pair got hitched on September 14, 2013, in Lake Como.
They have since cemented themselves as a firm Hollywood power couple.
via: GettyThe two are a pivotal part of the celebrity scene and their fans lap it up (especially where Chrissy's relatable social media posts are concerned... let's be honest, she's comedy gold!)
The couple share 2 children together...
Chrissy regularly posts about family life on Instagram...
The couple made the exciting announcement they were having another baby a few months ago...
via: YouTubeVia music video. The video was for John's new track, "Wild", and it showed the couple on a white linen bed on the beach.
Some of the lyrics include:
via: YouTube"I wanna drive you wild, wild, wild. I wanna love you for miles and miles. We can go slow, we don't need to rush. I'll take the wheel, make you feel every touch. I wanna drive you wild, wild, wild."
But, as the song draws to a close...
via: YouTubeWe get an unexpected, yet very exciting shot of the pair.
A pregnancy bump.
via: YouTubeYep, the Legends were officially going to be a family of 5.
At the end of the video, their 2 other children join in the fun...
via: YouTubeAnd they all walk towards the ocean together as a family.
However, Chrissy faced a hard few months of the pregnancy.
via: GettyBecause we all know how tiring it is to be pregnant! But luckily for her, 4-year-old Luna was on hand to make life as easy as possible.
Luna was very hands-on at the ultra-sound...
Luna took things to the next level when it came to looking after her mom.
The little girl had been running baths for her mom every day...
But sadly, it seems that Luna's efforts to look after her mom were to little avail.
via: GettyReports came in recently that Chrissy had been hospitalized.
The star took to social media to update her worried fans.
via: Getty"So, we all know I've been on bed rest for a few weeks. And that's like super serious bed rest, like get up to quickly pee and that's it. I would take baths twice a week, no showering. I was always, always bleeding... I'm about halfway through pregnancy and blood has been going for a month...maybe a little less than a month. But we're talking more than your period, girls, but definitely not spotting. A lot of people spot and it's usually fine. Mine was a lot."
She went on to explain that every time she would go to the bathroom, there would be blood.

Chrissy went on to urge doctors on social media to stop trying to diagnose her.
I just shared as much as you need to know about what’s goin on, on insta stories - medical Twitter I beg you to ple… https://t.co/JYmIwxq3UK— chrissy teigen (@chrissy teigen)1601264003.0
"I guess in the simplest of terms, we can say my placenta is really, really weak."
via: Getty"But I feel really good. The baby is so healthy, growing stronger than Luna or Miles. He moves a lot. He moves so much earlier than they ever did. He's strong. I'm so excited for him because he's so wonderful, the strongest little dude. So, I can't wait for him."
But it seems that all of these complications were a sign.
via: TwitterAnd it was announced shortly afterwards that Chrissy and John tragically lost their third unborn child.
Chrissy and John had already settled on a name for their little boy.
via: Instagram"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."
