Chrissy Teigen Loses Her Newborn Baby
Written By Zaina Cummins
In openly sharing her painful message of loss on social media, Chrissy Teigen became an important voice for mothers who have also experienced the loss of a child to pregnancy complications.
“Driving home from the hospital with no baby,” Ms. Teigen wrote on Twitter. “How can this be real.” She said she and her husband had decided to call the infant Jack.
Ms. Teigen posted a black-and-white photograph on Twitter and Instagram that showed her sitting on a hospital bed with her hands clasped in a prayer-like position, seemingly in tears. Another Instagram photo shows her holding her baby as Mr. Legend kisses her shoulder.
Ms. Teigen, 34, joined a long list of celebrities who have broken a social taboo in recent years to speak out about pregnancy loss. Others include the former first lady Michelle Obama, the singers Beyoncé and Celine Dion, the actresses Brooke Shields and Kirstie Alley and the actors Hugh Jackman and James Van Der Beek.
Such disclosures have resonated with women across the United States, where pregnancy discrimination is widespread, and organizations that provide family-planning or abortion services are often targeted by conservative officials, and miscarriages are still largely spoken of in hushed tones.
“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. “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.”
Ms. Teigen was believed to have been halfway along in her pregnancy. Last month, she let it slip that she was expecting a baby boy.
She said this week on Instagram that she was hospitalized on Sunday because of excessive bleeding from her placenta. She also posted a picture of a blood transfusion pamphlet.
“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.”
Later on Wednesday, Mr. Legend wrote on Twitter, “We love you, Jack,” followed by five black hearts.
