Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are parents to two children — Luna Simone, 4, and son Miles Theodore, 2. “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,” she wrote.
Sharing another photo, Teigen said, “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.” In another photograph, she can be seen cradling the baby wrapped in a blanket with Legend by her side.
Teigen also bid goodbye and addressed her son writing, “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.”
