Chrissy Teigan and John Legend took to social media to announce that they have lost their child due to pregnancy complications. 

"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we've never felt before," read Teigan's Instagram post.

The model and TV personality explains that she had been bleeding for months prior to the incident, which she has kept followers updated on on her Instagram page. "We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusion. It just wasn't enough," she wrote. 

The couple shared that they usually never name their babies before they're born, but this time felt different. They started referring to their unborn baby as Jack. "I'm so sorry for the first few moments of your life," wrote Teigan. "We will always love you." 

They thanked all the support that friends and family have given to them during this difficult time. "Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you," they wrote. 

The couple has 2 children, Miles and Luna, both of which were conceived by in vitro fertilization (IVF).
