Chrissy Teigen has said she will never be pregnant again, following the loss of her son Jack.
The 35-year-old lost her son Jack in late September, after suffering from pregnancy complications, bleeding and a weak placenta.
In an honest new Instagram post, the Lip Sync Battle star said that it was ‘frustrating’ that she still had a bump, despite not being pregnant anymore.
Chrissy shared a picture of her body side-on in a cut-out dress, and wrote: ‘This is me and my body, just yesterday. Even though I’m no longer pregnant, every glance in the mirror reminds me of what could have been. And I have no idea why i still have this bump, honestly. It’s frustrating.
‘But I’m proud of where this entire journey took my body and mind in other ways. I love being pregnant, so so much, and I’m sad I never will be again.
‘But I am lucky to have two amazing little ones who are transforming into big little people more and more every single day. Anyhoo. Love u guys.’
It is unclear whether Chrissy can no longer get pregnant or if she has been advised not to.
Fans and friends left heart emojis and messages of support under the post.
The star already shares daughter Luna, four, and son Miles, two, with husband John Legend.
Both Luna and Miles were conceived via in vitro fertilisation (IVF), and in 2018, she noted that they still had some embryos left, after their two children ‘shared the same little petri dish together’.
However, Jack was conceived naturally, and didn’t know that she was pregnant when undergoing breast reduction surgery.
She tweeted: ‘I did the routine pregnancy test you do before surgery. It said negative. It was not negative.
‘A few weeks after surgery, I took a test. And for many years now, I’ve taken pregnancy tests almost every month, praying to see a positive one day. Just wishful thinking. I never had a positive before.
‘So the morning of John’s album release, he wakes up at 3am to do good morning america. I woke up with him and was like man, should take my monthly test to be disappointed…I was not disappointed. But I was scared s***less. Was pretty positive you shouldn’t get your boobs out while pregnant? Pretty sure.’
Chrissy added: ‘When you give up on trying, life has a way of surprising you.’
The model was praised for being honest about her pregnancy loss and reducing stigma, after sharing devastating pictures of her and John in the hospital after losing their baby.
The heartbreaking Instagram post read: ‘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.’
Chrissy has since discussed going to therapy to deal with her grief.
