We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. 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. . . 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. So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever. . . 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. . . Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you. . . We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.

“We’re always here for you and love you guys so much,” Kim wrote. Gabrielle added, “We love you guys so much and will always be here for whatever y’all need. Always,” and Hailey Baldwin chimed in with, “I’m so so sorry. Thinking of you and John [Legend], praying for you guys and sending you so much love during this time.” Another star to comment was Paris Hilton, who wrote, “My heart breaks for you and John. I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you and your family so much love. Love you beautiful.”
Channing Tatum also left a comment, writing, “Sending so much love to you right now,” while Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi said, “I am so sorry. Praying for you and your beautiful family.” Viola Davis wrote, “So very sorry Chrissy and John. A big virtual hug of love, love, love and more,” and La La Anthony gushed, “Sending so much love and prayers to you, John and the family. My heart goes out to you. Praying for peace and healing.”
Chrissy found out she was unexpectedly pregnant with her third child after having breast implant removal surgery earlier this summer. Because she used IVF to get pregnant with her first two children, Luna, 4, and Miles, 2, Chrissy was not expecting to conceive naturally. In September, she was put on bed rest due to some complications in the pregnancy.
Earlier this week, Chrissy was hospitalized due to bleeding that would not stop. She explained to fans that she and her unborn baby boy were healthy, but that her placenta was not holding up for the little guy like it was supposed to be. On the morning of Sept. 29, she had a major scare due to a blood clot.
Sadly, Chrissy and John’s worst fears were realized on Sept. 30, when they lost the baby, despite “bags and bags of blood transfusions.” Chrissy shared emotional photos from the hospital, including one where she was crying in bed, and another where she held her baby, who the couple named Jack, for the first and only time. “We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about,” Chrissy admitted. “The kind of pain we never felt before.”
She added, “Jack, I’m so sorry 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. We are truly grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.”
