We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. 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. . . We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital.  But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack.  So he will always be Jack to us.  Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever. . . 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. . . Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers.  We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you. . . We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience.  But everyday can’t be full of sunshine.  On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.

Flashback: Chrissy Teigen Offered To Pay $100K For Justice

One reason Legend and Teigen are so admired as a couple is that they’re not shy about standing up for what’s right. Back in 2018, Chrissy made headlines when she was willing to dig into her pockets to give former Olympics star McKayla Maroney the strength needed to speak out in a sexual assault revelation.

According to reports, the Gold-winning gymnast received a $1.25 million settlement in 2016 from USA Gymnastics after it learned her team doctor Larry Nassar sexually abused her from the age of 13 until 20. As part of the agreement, Maroney is subject to the $100,000 fine if she speaks on the sexual attacks.

Maroney, who was represented by Gloria Allred when she accepted that settlement, said that she was in desperate need of the money due to her deteriorating psychological state and need for treatment as a result of the abuse she suffered at the hands of Nassar. She said at one point she was even thought about taking her own life. She is now suing USA Gymnastics – with her legal team arguing that it was illegal for USA Gymnastics to make Maroney sign a clause demanding her silence about her molestation. (Daily Mail)
