Chrissy Teigen in a 'grief depression hole' after losing son
Chrissy Teigen has told her fans she is in a “grief depression hole” following the loss of her son Jack.
The US model and her husband John Legend lost their baby boy in September, 20 weeks into the pregnancy, and documented their loss on Instagram with a series of moving photographs.
Teigen has now explained to her Twitter followers why she is being a bit quiet on the platform, but assured them she would be “fixed soon”.

“I’m not tweeting much because I’m honestly in a bit of a grief depression hole but do not worry as I have so much help around me to get better and I’ll be fixed soon,” she said.
“They’ll call when im better and ready for pickup and u can swing by and grab me ok?
“Thank u and love you!”
Teigen and Legend have two children together – daughter Luna, four, and son Miles, two – and shared in August that they were expecting again.
However, the star suffered complications and lost the baby – who the couple named Jack – at the end of September.
Sharing a series of candid pictures taken in hospital, Teigen wrote on Instagram that she and Legend were “shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before”.
She wrote: “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.
“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. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever.”

She added: “We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But everyday 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.”
The pair did face some criticism for the way they shared the news with the intimate pictures.
However, Teigen recently addressed this in an essay for Medium, writing: “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.”
She added that the photos were “only for the people who need them”.
