They were excitedly waiting to meet their third child. They had already named him Jack and model and author Chrissy Teigen was doing everything doctors told her to do as the pregnancy was complicated.

Then she and her husband John Legend announced the sad news: they had lost the baby.

“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,” it reads in part. “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,” she posted.
