Almost a month after losing her third child, son Jack, due to complications, Teigen penned a heartfelt post about the painful experience. Stars like Gabrielle Union, Mindy Kaling and many more took to social media to thank Teigen for sharing her story, as well as expressed their condolences.
"I you @chrissyteigen thank you for this, your transparency and all the healing you've inspired," Union tweeted. "We shouldn't have to suffer in silence and everyone who truly understands is incredibly grateful for this and you, always."

The Cravings cookbook author also posted screenshots of her essay on Instagram, adding, "I didn’t know how to come back to real life so I wrote this piece for Medium with hopes that I can somehow move on but as soon as I posted it, tears flew out because it felt so....final. I don’t want to ever not remember jack."
"Sending you and family so much love ♥️♥️♥️," Naomi Campbell also commented.
In her essay, Teigen explained that her doctors had diagnosed her with partial placenta abruption, which is when the placenta separates from the wall of the uterus before birth. If this happens, the baby may not get enough oxygen and nutrients in the womb. This can also cause serious bleeding, which Teigen also experienced.
