John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have lost their baby.
Chrissy revealed today on social media that she suffered a miscarriage just one month after announcing the pregnancy.
The couple had chosen the name Jack for their third son.
Alongside a heartbreaking series of black and white photos of her and John in the hospital, Chrissy wrote:
"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."

The 34-year-old - who also has daughter Luna, four, and son Miles, two - was about halfway through her pregnancy, which was first announced in her musical husband’s music video for Wild.
"Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you," Chrissy continued in her post.
"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 every day 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."
Earlier this week Chrissy had posted a series of concerning updates about her high-risk pregnancy, explaining that she was in hospitalised after bleeding "constantly".
