In September 2020, Chrissy shared an emotional Instagram post about experiencing the loss of her baby after spending days in the hospital for complications with a weak placenta. "We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before," she wrote in her caption. "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." She continued on to mention that while she and her husband, John Legend, usually wait until just before birth to decide on names for their kids, they had begun to call this forthcoming baby by the name Jack. "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." Our hearts are with you, Chrissy.
