Chrissy shared a little information about the loss and said they were never able to stop the bleeding and give their baby the fluids he needed. She revealed that even after bags and bags of blood transfusion, it wasn’t enough.
The cookbook author wrote, “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.”
“But every day can’t be full of sunshine”- Chrissy
The model went on and said Jack worked really hard to be a part of their little family and he will be “forever”. Chrissy addressed her lost baby boy and wrote how sorry she was that the first moments of his life were full of complications. She apologized for not being able to give him the home he needed to survive and said they will always love him.
Chrissy thanked everyone and 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.” She continued that they are thankful for their babies, Luna and Miles, for all the things they have been able to experience.
The model concluded, “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.” John reposted her post and wrote, “We love you, Jack.”
Chrissy also updated her fans when she left the hospital and tweeted. She informed her fans that they are driving home from the hospital with no baby. The model wrote, “How can this be real.”
