Chrissy Teigen has marked her late son Jack's due date hours before she undergoes endometriosis surgery.

Teigen - who shares daughter Luna, four, and son Miles, two, with her husband John Legend - took to Twitter on Wednesday to vocalise her feelings about the difficult time. The TV presenter has continued to be honest and open about her grieving process since the loss of her baby pre-term last October.

'My little jack would have been born this week so I’m a bit off, [sic]' she began her tweet. 'I truly feel kicks in my belly, but it’s not phantom.

'I have surgery for endometriosis tomorrow … but the period feeling this month is exactly like baby kicks. Sigh,' she added.

According to the NHS, endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb starts to grow in other places, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes, and can affect women of any age.

Teigen also shared a video of the her stomach with the caption: 'Look at this. I'll pretend it's him saying hi - it never stops. [sic]'

The presenter subsequently reached out on social media to other women living with endometriosis to find out more about her surgery's recovery process and whether or not it would be possible for her to 'make soup' after the procedure.

The mother-of-two received several responses from Twitter users, with many praising her for bringing awareness to the health issue as well as offering advice about what Teigen should be mindful of ahead of the procedure.

In December, Teigen opened up on social media about coming to terms with never being pregnant again.

'I love being pregnant, so so much, and I'm sad I never will be again,' she wrote in a post on Instagram.

'But I am lucky to have two amazing little ones who are transforming into big little people more and more every single day. [sic]'
