The couple — who are parents to daughter Luna Simone, 4, and son Miles Theodore, 2 — shared the sad news on Wednesday, revealing that her bleeding couldn't be stopped, "despite bags and bags of blood transfusions."
"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," Teigen, 34, wrote in a lengthy and emotional Instagram post.
"We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital," she continued, sharing some black-and-white photos from 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," the grieving mom wrote. "Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you."
Legend, 41, also shared Teigen's statement on his own Twitter account, and wrote, "We love you, Jack 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤."
