On Wednesday night, the 43-year-old model drops the heartbreaking news that she suffered a miscarriage after a few days of grueling hospitalization.
Chrissy was first admitted to the hospital on September 27 due to bleeding caused by her weak placenta. She was rushed to the hospital due to excessive bleeding, but she assured her fans that the unborn baby is still safe and healthy.
On September 29, Chrissy shared that she had a "scary morning" after seeing huge blood clots and ended up having two blood transfusions before losing Baby Jack.
"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we've never felt before," Chrissy wrote alongside a series of black and white candid photos during their stay in the hospital.
"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," she added.
The "Cravings" author penned a heartbreaking letter for Baby Jack saying they will always love him.
"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," Chrissy wrote.
The former model also took the opportunity to express gratitude to the family members, friends, and fans who have been supporting them through prayers and positive energy.
In the end, Chrissy said she and John are looking on the bright side of being blessed with two beautiful children Luna, 4, and Miles, 2.
