Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter last week to share how she lost a tooth while eating a Fruit Roll-Up, and it's seriously freaked people out!
Here's the full story...
Now, we all know and love Chrissy Teigen for being unapologetically herself.
The former model, who is married to singer John Legend, has millions of fans around the world who love her for her honesty and no-nonsense attitude.
She and John are the proud parents to their 2 children...
Luna and Miles.
And in the last decade, Chrissy has gained a huge following from fellow parents worldwide...
And she is very much loved for always keeping things real when it comes to raising 2 young kids.
She's clearly such an amazing mom...
Who has a wicked sense of humor!
But last year in September...
Chrissy and John opened up about a tragic loss in their family.
Chrissy took to social media to announce they had lost their third unborn child...
Who they had already decided to name Jack.
In the emotional post that contained photos of the moment they said goodbye to baby Jack, the heartbroken mom apologized to her son...
She 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."
And, just a few weeks after the tragic loss...
Chrissy returned to social media to share an essay she wrote for Medium about her harrowing experience.
In the deeply personal piece simply titled "Hi," the star started off by explaining that she didn't know when she would be ready to address her son's death.
She took some time to thank fans for their support...
"I didn’t really know how I would start this, no matter the room or state I was in, but it feels right to begin with a thank you. For weeks, our floors have been covered in flowers of kindness. "Notes have flooded in and have each been read with our own teary eyes. Social media messages from strangers have consumed my days, most starting with, 'you probably won’t read this, but…'. I can assure you, I did."
Chrissy then moved onto talking about the day she lost Jack.
"One of the standout moments from that morning (or evening? I have no idea) was me going through the halls of labor and delivery, and John saying “What, is there a f**king party going on here??" Here we were, just wheeled down to a new floor, me covered in a thin blanket to hide, knowing I was about to fully deliver what was supposed to be the 5th member of our beautiful family, a son, only to say goodbye moments later. "People cheered and laughed right outside our door, understandably for a new life born and celebrated. You kind of wonder how anyone is thinking about anyone but you."
Chrissy explained that she was admitted to hospital after persistent bleeding and multiple blood transfusions, and diagnosed with partial placenta abruption.
"At this point I had already come to terms with what would happen: I would have an epidural and be induced to deliver our 20 week old, a boy that would have never survived in my belly (please excuse these simple terms). "I was previously on bedrest for over a month, just trying to get the little dude to 28 weeks, a “safer" zone for the fetus. My doctors diagnosed me with partial placenta abruption. I had always had placenta problems. I had to deliver Miles a month early because his stomach wasn’t getting enough food from my placenta. But this was my first abruption. We monitored it very closely, hoping for things to heal and stop."
"I could have spent these days at the hospital, but not much of a difference would have been made. I was still seen by doctors at home, silently twisting their negative words into positives, thinking that everything might still turn out okay."
"Finally, I had a pretty bad night in bed, after a not-so-great ultrasound, where I was bleeding a bit more than even my abnormal amount. My bleeding was getting heavier and heavier. The fluid around Jack had become very low — he was barely able to float around. At some points, I swore it was so low I could lay on my back and feel his arms and legs from outside my belly."
Chrissy then described the heartwrenching moment she was told it was time to say goodbye.
"After a couple nights at the hospital, my doctor told me exactly what I knew was coming — it was time to say goodbye.
"I cried a little at first, then went into full-blown convulsions of snot and tears, my breath not able to catch up with my own incredibly deep sadness. Even as I write this now, I can feel the pain all over again. Oxygen was placed over my nose and mouth, and that was the first picture you saw. Utter and complete sadness."
"I’m not sure I’ll ever forget the experience."
via: Getty"I had always laughed about how much I loved epidurals…not so much this one. I laid there for hours, waiting to be told it was time to push. I obviously never had to dilate much, he was still a tiny little guy. "I had been laying on my side, switching sides every hour or so, whenever the nurse told me to. I remember laying on my right side, looking opposite of John, when I was told to make my switch. I opened my legs and started to turn to face John and just like that, he was on his way out. The doctors yelled for a bit and…I don’t know what to say, even now. He was out."
"People say an experience like this creates a hole in your heart. A hole was certainly made, but it was filled with the love of something I loved so much. It doesn’t feel empty, this space. It feels full."
"Maybe *too* bursting full, actually. I find myself randomly crying, thinking about how happy I am to have two insanely wonderful little toddlers who fill this house with love. I smother them with love while they “Moooooooom!!!!!" me. I don’t care."
It's been almost 4 months since the family's tragic loss...
And slowly but surely, they have been learning to live with their grief and build their lives back together.
It's clear to see that Chrissy is starting to get back to her old, bubbly self...
And she's been keeping herself very busy... including accompanying John as he sang at President Biden's inauguration ceremony last week in Washington D.C.
But while she's been in D.C for the last week...
The former model had a major incident involving her tooth and a Fruit Roll-Up.
And it seriously freaked people out...

My biggest fear is having a crown come out while eating junk food and having to explain it to my dentist at the age of 30 🤣🤣🤣🤣— Ebonnaé ✌🏾 🌻 💜 (@peace_hippielov) January 21, 2021
Now I'm feeling super paranoid about ever losing the veneer on one of my front top teeth. I just stopped having bizarre dreams about the temporary coming off 😪— Kells Bells (@kellymarie20209) January 21, 2021
In the short clip, Chrissy explains to her followers what happened.
"I just lost my tooth in a Fruit Roll-Up," she says before showing her fans a small tooth balanced on her finger.
Although it's unknown as to where in her mouth the tooth fell out of, it's pretty unnoticable from what we can see!
Here's the full video:
And we're sure Chrissy will get her tooth fixed very soon!
