The devastated parents said they would need time to grieve over their newborn son, who they named Jack.
THE 34-year-old model took to Instagram last night to share the heartbreaking news with her beloved fans. In the post, she revealed a series of deeply candid photographs of herself, her 41-year-old husband John, and their baby son, who they had named Jack.
As she opened up on the news and her devastating miscarriage, Chrissy wrote: “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 every day 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.”
Husband John also took to social media to mourn the loss of their son. On Twitter, he wrote: “We love you, Jack” alongside a string of black heart emojis. Chrissy later wrote on Twitter: “Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real.” Fans, friends and followers were united in sending both Chrissy and John messages of condolence.
