This is any parent's worst nightmare...
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have tragically lost their third unborn child.The distraught mom made an emotional announcement last night and it's utterly devastating to read.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are Hollywood's sweethearts and long-standing idols in the parenting community.The 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...
"There was no big grand speech or anything. I think it was just very lovely and sweet."
The pair got hitched on September 14, 2013, in Lake Como.
They have since cemented themselves as a firm Hollywood power couple.The 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...
She's known well for her honest perspective into parenting...
And it looked like things are going to get even more tiring...Because last month, they announced they were expecting their third baby!
Yep, they made their exciting announcement a few months ago...Via music video, of course. The video was for John's new track, "Wild", and it showed the couple frolicking around on a white linen bed on the beach.
Some of the lyrics include:"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...We get an unexpected, yet very exciting shot of the pair.
A pregnancy bump!Yep, 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...And they all walk towards the ocean together as a family.
However, Chrissy faced a hard few months of the pregnancy.Because 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 has been taking things to the next level when it comes 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.Reports came in recently that Chrissy had been hospitalized.
The star took to social media on Sunday to update her worried fans"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.
"But honestly, just laying there would be blood," she said. "But today, the big difference was that it kind of was like if you were to turn a faucet onto low and leave it there. It's so weird because I feel really good... I'm usually at my happiest pregnant, mood-wise. I feel happier than I do not pregnant. That's why it's so hard for me to come to terms with. It was at the point today where it was never stopping bleeding."
It’s a hospital, john https://t.co/thyf2TevGN— chrissy teigen (@chrissy teigen)1601270580.0
Chrissy went on to urge doctors on social media to stop trying to diagnose her.
"You have to trust me that I have very good doctors who know what they're doing, who know the entire story," she said. "There's so much more than you can ever imagine. I share a lot, but not absolutely everything. So trust me when I say they know and I just want to keep things so simple for you guys."
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.""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.It was announced late last night that Chrissy and John tragically lost their third unborn child.
Floods of condolences have rushed in for the family since the announcement...And it's clear how painful losing an unborn child really can be.
Chrissy took to Instagram to announce the devastating news to her fans.In an emotional statement, she started by saying: "We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough."
Chrissy and John had already settled on a name for their little boy."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."
She apologized to her son..."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. Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you."
Chrissy then acknowledged the things that she and John are grateful for...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 every day 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."
The distraught mom then tweeted this:
We can't imagine how much pain she's feeling right now.
