Just a few days ago, she rushed to the hospital after suffering heavy bleeding.
She wrote, “Just had a really scary morning a huge clot, almost save-worthy. The scramble to hear the heartbeat seemed like hours. I never thought I’d relief sigh so much in my liiiiife.”
On Wednesday, she shared an emotional post on Instagram, revealing that they had lost the baby.
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.
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.
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.
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 everyday 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 caption was accompanied by heartbreaking photos of her cradling the baby.
Chrissy and husband John Legend had announced their pregnancy through his new music video, and during an Instagram live session last month, she accidentally let it slip that they were expecting a boy.
The couple got married in 2013 after meeting on the set of John’s music video in 2006. They have a four-year-old daughter, Luna, and two-year-old son, Miles.
