  • Chrissy Teigen is defending Meghan Markle after a Twitter user called her out for writing "a 1000 word op-ed about herself" following her pregnancy loss.
  • Meghan Markle revealed she's suffered a miscarriage back in July in an op-ed published by the New York Times this week.
  • Chrissy, whose also recently lost a child, later took to social media, admitting she's in "a bit of a grief depression hole".

Meghan Markle revealed in an opinion piece for the New York Times that she suffered a miscarriage back in July.

The Duchess of Sussex wrote: "I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second," in a heartbreaking admission, published on Wednesday.

Since, many have been rallying behind the duchess, including TV presenters Lorraine Kelly and Susanna Reid, while Prince Harry's uncle, Princess Diana's brother, Charles Spencer, has said his "thoughts [are] with them".

"I can't imagine the agony for any couple losing a child in this way and it's so very, very sad," he said.

Chrissy Teigen has also spoken out after one user on Twitter criticised Meghan for writing "a 1000 word op-ed about herself".

"What does it add to the resources already available for those who go through a tragedy like this?" Marco Giannangeli wrote.

Chrissy, who recently lost her third child, responded: "Award for today's absolute piece of shit goes to Marco Giannangeli. Congratulations, piece of shit."

According to E! News, she's since deleted the tweet though, writing later: "Sorry forgot I'm trying to be nicer lol."

Chrissy has also spoken candidly about losing baby Jack at 20 weeks, writing an essay of her own for Medium.

On Wednesday she updated fans on where she's at, writing on Twitter that she's 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," she said.
