Back in September 2020, Teigan opened up about the trauma of losing their unborn son in a series of heartbreaking images.
This week, Chrissy Teigan shared her grief on Twitter after losing her third baby, Jack, a few months ago. My little jack would have been born this week so I'm a bit off, she wrote. Although she's doing relatively well now as she continues healing, Teigan went on to express a more devastating fact, I truly feel kicks in my belly, but it's not phantom. Back in September 2020, Teigan opened up about the trauma of losing their unborn son. 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 Instagram sharing a series of distressing photos of herself with John Legend and their deceased son in the hospital. 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.
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, continued the heartfelt post. 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, continued the post.
Then in November, Teigan revealed that she was still trying to process the loss of her child. I’m not tweeting much because I’m honestly in a bit of a grief depression hole but do not worry as I have so much help around me to get better and I’ll be fixed soon. they’ll call when im better and ready for pickup and u can swing by and grab me ok? thank u and love you! she wrote on Twitter. The following month, the mother announced that she has been suffering from complications which meant that she would never become pregnant again. She also shared her sadness about having a bump that reminded her of Jack every time she looked at it.
This is me and my body, just yesterday. Even though I’m no longer pregnant, every glance in the mirror reminds me of what could have been. And I have no idea why i still have this bump, honestly. It’s frustrating. But I’m proud of where this entire journey took my body and mind in other ways. I love being pregnant, so so much, and I’m sad I never will be again. But I am lucky to have two amazing little ones who are transforming into big little people more and more every single day. Anyhoo. Love u guys. Xx, read the post.
Then in the recent post, Teigan announced that she will be undergoing surgery for endometriosis, a painful disorder in which tissue similar to the tissue that usually lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus, according to Mayo Clinic. In addition to sharing that it was Jack's due date this week, Teigan revealed that the symptoms of her conditions painfully remind her of little Jack. I have surgery for endometriosis tomorrow...but the period feeling this month is exactly like baby kicks. sigh, she wrote. Then she went on to share a video of her stomach spasms, saying she pretends it's Jack "saying hi." Look at this...I’ll pretend it’s him saying hi - it never stops, read the heartwrenching post.
