Teigen corrects miscarriage story

In September 2020, Chrissy Teigen shared with the world the heartbreaking news that she has lost baby Jack. Two years later, she announced that it was not a miscarriage. The pregnancy was intentionally terminated.
According to American model Chrissy Teigen, she did not miscarry in 2020 but had to undergo a life-saving abortion. “Let’s just call it what it was: It was an abortion,” singer John Legend’s wife said at an event in the United States, according to media reports. Halfway through the pregnancy, it appeared that her son would not survive – “and neither will I without medical intervention,” the 36-year-old said.
Teigen, who already has a daughter and son with Legend, lost her third child at 20 weeks of pregnancy in September 2020. At the time, she stated she had miscarried and made it public on online platforms. “I’m driving home from the hospital with no baby,” she wrote at the time. She also posted a black and white photo of her crying in the hospital and another photo of her with the dead baby wrapped in a cloth.
Now Teigen said she didn’t fully realize what was happening at the time. She only realized it was an abortion after the US Supreme Court overturned the country’s abortion law in June.
No miscarriage or stillbirth
“I told the world we had a miscarriage. The world agreed we had a miscarriage. All the headlines said it was a miscarriage,” Teigen said. With the help of her husband, she understood what really happened after the court ruling. Then she got annoyed that “I didn’t say what it was,” the model said. “I felt stupid that it had taken me over a year to really understand that we were having an abortion.”
Meanwhile, Teigen is expecting another child after fertility treatment. As she reported on Instagram, she had undergone a so-called in vitro fertilization. In this form of artificial insemination, healthy eggs are taken from the woman and fertilized in a test tube with the sperm cells of the man.
