The entertainment industry is sending support to Chrissy Teigen and John Legend after the couple suffered a miscarriage.

Wednesday night on Instagram, Teigen revealed that she and her husband tragically lost their third child, a baby boy who they named Jack.

While posting heart-wrenching photos from the hospital, Teigen wrote on her page, “We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. 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.”

On Sunday night, Teigen announced that she had been hospitalized due to excessive bleeding from her placenta. Days later, she said she had received her second blood transfusion.

Though she says she and John “never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment,” the two “had started to call this little guy” Jack while in utero.

“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.”

In a note to Jack, Teigen apologizes “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.”

Despite this: “We will always love you.”

Teigen concluded her note expressing gratitude to fans for their kind words, as well as to her two children with Legend: son Miles, 2, and daughter Luna, 4.

“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.”

We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. 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. . . 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. . . Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers.  We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you. . .
