Chrissy Teigen has opened up about the loss of her son Jack in a deeply personal post she has recently published online.

Chrissy and her husband John tragically lost their son Jack after a miscarriage a few weeks back. Now the star has written about the experience in a post on Medium.

After a couple nights at the hospital, my doctor told me exactly what I knew was coming β€” it was time to say goodbye. He just wouldn’t survive this, and if it went on any longer, I might not either.Β 

"I had no idea when I would be ready to write this." she began by saying.

She then went on to describe in detail the days she spent in hospital before it became clear that little Jack wouldn't make it. She recalled asking John and her mum to take photos of the process in hospital, something which she has no regret for.

"I had asked my mom and John to take pictures, no matter how uncomfortable it was. I explained to a very hesitant John that I needed them, and that I did NOT want to have to ever ask. That he just had to do it. He hated it. I could tell. It didn’t make sense to him at the time."

"But I knew I needed to know of this moment forever, the same way I needed to remember us kissing at the end of the aisle, the same way I needed to remember our tears of joy after Luna and Miles. And I absolutely knew I needed to share this story."

"I cannot express how little I care that you hate the photos. How little I care that it’s something you wouldn’t have done. I lived it, I chose to do it, and more than anything, these photos aren’t for anyone but the people who have lived this or are curious enough to wonder what something like this is like. These photos are only for the people who need them. The thoughts of others do not matter to me."

"I wrote this because I knew for me I needed to say something before I could move on from this and return back to life, so I truly thank you for allowing me to do so. Jack will always be loved, explained to our kids as existing in the wind and trees and the butterflies they see. Thank you so much to every single person who has had us in their thoughts or gone as far as to send us your love and stories. We are so incredibly lucky."
