Chrissy Teigen lost her unborn baby last September after several weeks of complications with the pregnancy that led to her hospitalization.
Since that loss, Teigen has been extremely open about her healing process.
She has discussed giving up alcohol and her biggest regrets about the loss and has touched many people in the process.
On The Ellen Show, Teigen discussed the painful loss up even more.
“I go through my closet, and there are maternity clothes, things that I bought for my eighth month and my ninth month,” she said. “So it’s just hard because he would’ve been born this week, so you look at those things, and you have these constant reminders.”
She explained that she was comfortable with such openness because of her background in a household that was open with loss.
“It was a really transformative thing for me and, in a way, it really saved me. I don’t think that I would’ve discovered therapy, and then sobriety, and this path of feeling good about myself and feeling like a new person,” she explained.
“You think about all the people that go through it in silence, and you get really sad for them. Ours was so public, so so many people were so supportive. You really gain this incredible amount of empathy. And I really, somehow, think I am a better person now. And I just have the best support system ever.”
She also shared that her two children with husband John Legend talk about the lost baby, Jack.
“We’ll be going to the beach or something, and they’ll say, ‘Is baby Jack with us right now? Do you think he’s up in the clouds?’ It’s just so beautiful and so sweet,” Teigen shared.
