Chrissy Teigen has been documenting the past few difficult weeks of her pregnancy as she was put on bed rest amid complications, but after a brief hospital stay the model shared last night that she and husband John Legend lost their baby.

Chrissy Teigen had been candid about her struggles during her recent pregnancy, sharing her journey with her fans. She had kept her spirits high even when put on strict bed rest and in her hospital stay, posting videos joking with husband John Legend or tweeting to ask about becoming a Postmates deliverer.

Sadly, last night, Teigen posted on Instagram, and later Twitter, that she and Legend had lost their child, whom they had already named Jack. She expressed the pain they were both in at the loss, but ended her message with a glimmer of hope:

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.

John Legend shared the news, retweeting Teigen, saying,

We love you, Jack 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤

Pregnancy loss is unexpectedly common with about 10 to 15% of pregnancies ending in miscarriage and 1 in 100 pregnancy being stillbirths. However, it is an issue that is very rarely spoken about and as such, in addition to the grief, it can be a very isolating experience. Teigen has faced backlash about sharing her loss on social media, but many others acknowledge the importance of addressing how common this is in order to destigmatize and offer support to other women and families who undergo the same heartbreaking experience.
