Chrissy Teigen reveal this week she will never be able to get pregnant again following the heartbreaking loss of her son Jack.
‘Coming to terms with not being able to carry again is still really difficult for me because I feel so healthy. I’m like, why?’ the model, 35, admitted in her cover story for People. ‘But then I think about it as my uterus is just not cooperating with me — and it’s not a failure.
Chrissy and her husband John Legend tragically lost their third child, a baby boy they had already started calling ‘Jack’, 20 weeks into her pregnancy. The beauty shared the heartbreaking news with her Instagram followers shortly after the horrific experience, and posted photos of herself in the hospital mourning the loss of her child.
Not long afterwards, she revealed she would be unable to carry a child again.
‘I love being pregnant, so so much, and I’m sad I never will be again,’ she posted on Instagram. Despite the loss, Chrissy expressed gratitude for her other two children, daughter Luna, four, and son Miles, two, whom were both conceived via IVF.
‘I’m so lucky for that,’ she told the magazine. ‘I just think of it in terms of how blessed I am already, and also there are so many ways to have a child nowadays … whether it’s surrogacy or adoption.’
In keeping with Thai tradition, the family have planted a tree in their house to honor their son. ‘It’s important for us in Thai tradition that we always embrace the ones we’ve lost, and they’re never, ever gone. This tree being planted inside the home, the whole reason why I wanted it was so Jack’s ashes could be in that soil and he could be with us all the time and grow through the beautiful leaves in this tree,’ she said.
‘The way Miles and Luna talk about him is so beautiful and reminds me of when I was little talking to my grandpa who was just sitting bedside next to my mom in a little urn,’ she said. ‘It’s all beautiful, and I love that tradition carries down.’
Chrissy revealed she had lost Jack in September 2020, with a series of heartbreaking photos of herself at the hospital.
‘We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,’ she told followers. ‘ 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.’
