Update, 10/1: Devastatingly, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend lost their baby (opens in new tab), which they named Jack. "We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before," Teigen wrote on Instagram.
Original post: Chrissy Teigen experienced a major health scare during her third pregnancy, she shared on Twitter Tuesday. "Just had a really scary morning," she wrote. "huge clot, almost save-worthy. The scramble to hear the heartbeat seemed like hours. I never thought I’d relief sigh so much in my liiiiife."

Teigen was hospitalized on Sunday (opens in new tab) after experiencing severe bleeding; she told her followers, "It kind of was like if you were to turn a faucet on low and leave it there." She stressed that her baby was healthy, but her placenta was unable to adequately support him. "In the simplest of terms, we can say my placenta is really, really weak. So I feel really good, the baby’s so healthy, growing stronger than Luna or Miles. He moves a lot, he moves so much earlier than they ever did," she explained. "Basically, he’s the strongest, coolest dude in the shittiest house. So, his house is just falling apart. It didn’t have a good foundation."

Teigen subsequently received two blood transfusions (opens in new tab), she shared on Instagram. "hello from hospital. about to have my second blood transfusion which truly truly truly sounds more dramatic than it is. It’s an IV, but instead of fluids, the blood of some kind human being out there," she said.
"Baby and I are completely fine, just missing the little things like walking...cooking...playing with the other buttbutts," Teigen continued, alongside a photo of herself on New Year's Eve. "came across this little gem from ringing in 2020. It all makes sense now!"
