The Project star breaks down after opening up about her miscarriage
Chrissy Teigen has let fans in on a very emotional and private moment in her life on Thursday.
The model shared with her fans that she had suffered from a miscarriage.
It’s something that happens to one in four pregnant women, and those who experience it are left heartbroken.
The Project panellist and comedian Em Rusciano made a special tribute to Chrissy during the show on Thursday night, after suffering her own miscarriage in May 2017.
Getting emotional, she explained how it’s not talked about enough.
“You find out about it when talking to girlfriends, and they say ‘I’ve had one too’. Not at the time, when they need the most support and love,” she explained.
“You go through so many things, and you blame yourself. It’s a strange grief. It’s a different kind of grief, and I’ve never experienced anything like it.”
Rusciano was grateful the star was so open and honest about her experience, as she hoped other women will have the courage to also speak up.
Teigen took to Twitter to share her news, saying she and husband John Legend had lost their son, who the had named Jack, halfway through her third pregnancy.
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” the mum-of-two wrote to her fans.
“We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It 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.”
She continued: “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.”
