In a recent Instagram story from her hospital bed, Teigen likened the nonstop bleeding to a water faucet running on low that was never turned off, calling the weeks to come the “danger zone” portion of the pregnancy. She was in awe of her baby boy “growing stronger than Luna or Miles” and moving around more than her two children had at that stage.

“Basically, he’s the strongest, coolest dude,” she said of Jack. “His house is just falling apart. It didn’t have a good foundation to begin with.”

While it’s unclear how the baby was lost, stillbirth and infant deaths in the United States are not uncommon. In the United States, 1 in every 160 births is a stillbirth, according to the National Institutes of Health. Since 2003, there have been about 26,000 stillbirth deaths nationally per year. More than 21,000 infants died in the United States in 2018, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a rate of almost six deaths per 1,000 live births. Maternal pregnancy complications were among the leading national causes for infant deaths, the agency found.

Fans offered their support and condolences to the couple for their loss, as the heartbreaking news led social media into early Thursday. Teigen said she, Legend, and their children “will grieve, we will cry our eyes out” but that the family would “hug and love each other harder and get through it.” Less than 30 minutes after announcing they had lost their baby, Teigen was still processing the pain and the depth of their loss to her millions of fans.

“Driving home from the hospital with no baby,” she tweeted. “How can this be real.”
