US model Chrissy Teigen (36) and her husband John Legend (43) recently announced that they are expecting another child. The couple are in high spirits after Chrissy Teigen announced 2020 officially miscarried . Again and again she remembered this difficult time and tried to encourage others who were affected. But now she's making it public: It wasn't a miscarriage back then, it was an abortion.
The truth about her supposed miscarriage revealed Chrissy Teigen during a public appearance, as reported by the US magazine 'The Hollywood Reporter'. 'Two years ago, while pregnant with my third child, I had to make a lot of difficult and heartbreaking decisions,' the model shared. About halfway through the pregnancy it was clear that her baby would not survive - at least not without medical intervention. Chrissy's own health was also at risk at the time, she would have had to take a lot of medication. Chrissy Teigen is clear about this today: 'Let's call it what it was: It was an abortion. An abortion to save my life for a baby who had absolutely no chance.'
Chrissy Teigen reports very openly and honestly that she has not been able to admit this fact to herself for a very long time. She told everyone at the time that she had a miscarriage. The press picked it up, it was reported in every magazine. In retrospect, she is annoyed with herself: 'I was really frustrated that I hadn't said what it was from the beginning'. But it took her more than a year to understand that she had had an abortion.
Chrissy Teigen's husband John Legend, who was deeply saddened by the loss itself, supported her during the difficult time. The couple is now expecting another child. In an interview with The New Yorker magazine, he reports that he is caught between sadness and joy: 'You're never the same again' and 'I don't expect to fill the hole we felt when we lost Jack.' While the two will carry that pain with them forever, they can now relate to it look forward to the next child.
