Chrissy Teigen has said she will never be pregnant again following the loss of her third child, Jack.
In October, the TV presenter and her husband John Legend shared the news that the 35-year-old had lost her baby Jack pre-term after suffering complications during pregnancy.
On Tuesday, the mother-of-two shared a photograph of herself in a cut-out dress and opened up about her relationship with her body.
‘This is me and my body, just yesterday,’ she began the caption.
‘Even though I’m no longer pregnant, every glance in the mirror reminds me of what could have been. And I have no idea why i still have this bump, honestly. It’s frustrating. But I’m proud of where this entire journey took my body and mind in other ways.
‘I love being pregnant, so so much, and I’m sad I never will be again. But I am lucky to have two amazing little ones who are transforming into big little people more and more every single day, [sic]’ she concluded before sharing her love for her fans.
The post has been ‘liked’ more than 1.9 million times, with celebrities including model Lily Aldridge commenting on the post. ‘Beautiful,’ Aldridge noted.
Teigen is currently on holiday in St. Barts with Legend and their children, Luna and Miles.
Two months prior, the Lip Sync Battle presenter informed her Instagram followers of her third child’s passing.
Sharing a series of emotional photos to her account, taken from her hospital bed, Teigen confirmed that she was no longer able to carry her baby to term, the blood loss having proven too grave for him to stay alive.
'We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,’ she noted at the time. ‘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.'
Teigen added that she and Legend had decided to name their son Jack, writing that he will be 'part of our little family, forever'.
Legend later opened up about the couple's decision to share photos from the devastating and deeply personal moment.
In an interview on on Good Morning America with his wife last month, the singer explained: 'I didn't know that we could experience this grief and also share it, but when we did, it really meant so much to so many people and it was such a powerful experience for me to learn that. And I'm just grateful that my wife was courageous enough to do it.'
