Chrissy Teigen Reveals She Suffered Pregnancy Loss – Here’s Why People Are Lauding Her
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have been brutally honest about everything – from their fights to their love life, nothing is censored, which is why they sometimes end up receiving heat from their fans. However, the couple’s latest news had everyone crying.
The power pair revealed in a heartbreaking post that they lost their third child, whom they named Jack, after suffering from pregnancy complications. In a series of black-and-white photos, the former model emotionally shared how difficult the entire ordeal was.
One of the photos showed the ‘Lip Sync Battle’ host crying in the hospital bed while another one saw her and the singer weeping as she cradled the baby. Celebrity friends of the couple flocked to their social media pages to show their outpouring love and support at this trying time.
Third Pregnancy Announcement
Chrissy’s third pregnancy was unexpected for her and the ‘All of Me’ hitmaker primarily because they conceived their two children through in vitro fertilization. Plus, they didn’t know that they were expecting until the outspoken cookbook author got tested prior to a surgery.
Her first routine pregnancy test came out negative, which is not surprising at all for her since she admitted that she is so used to seeing that one line every month. After the surgery, she took another test and saw two lines, shocking and scaring her at the same time.
The positive result did elicit a mix of emotions so she woke up her husband from his sleep and handed him the test. They didn’t immediately announce the good news to their fans and waited for the right opportunity to make it more special.
Finally, they revealed the pregnancy through John’s ‘Wild’ music video. Toward the end of the clip, John can be seen hugging Chrissy and cradling her baby bump.
Other Stars Who Suffered Pregnancy Loss
While Chrissy’s emotional post was gut-wrenching, it also garnered applause because of her bravery in sharing the sad news for everyone to see the realities of this experience. This goes to show that celebrities’ lives are not always glitz and glamour.
More than this, she also gained praises for speaking out about this painful reality, thereby destigmatizing the heartbreak of losing a child. Apart from her, Michelle Obama previously revealed in her book that she suffered a miscarriage and only learned that many women are silent about their experiences after she shared what happened to her with her friends, who ended up narrating their stories, too.
In the past, Celine Dion, Beyonce, Kristie Alley, and Brooke Shields shared their journeys as well.
