The model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen said late Wednesday that she and her husband, the singer John Legend, had lost their third child, a son, days after she posted on social media about suffering pregnancy complications.
“Driving home from the hospital with no baby,” Ms. Teigen wrote on Twitter. “How can this be real.”
Ms. Teigen also posted a black-and-white photograph on Twitter and Instagram that showed her sitting on a hospital bed with her hands clasped in a prayer-like position, seemingly in tears. Another Instagram photo shows her holding her baby as Mr. Legend kisses her shoulder.
Ms. Teigen, 34, joined a long list of celebrities who have broken a social taboo in recent years to speak out about pregnancy loss. Others include the former first lady Michelle Obama, the singers Beyoncé and Celine Dion, the actresses Brooke Shields and Kirstie Alley and the actors Hugh Jackman and James Van Der Beek.
