‘You can touch him if you want,’ the employee informs Vilailuck.

Chrissy had been hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Sunday night after enduring a month of bleeding due to having a weak placenta and had been at the hospital since.
She revealed she was on ‘serious bed rest’ due to the bleeding and ‘about halfway through her pregnancy’, which is around 20 – 24 weeks. A stillbirth is when a baby is born dead at 24 weeks or later.

‘I’m about halfway through pregnancy and the blood has been going on for about a month, maybe a little bit less than a month. We’re talking about more than your period girls, it’s definitely not spotting. A lot of people spot but it’s usually fine. Mine was a lot,’ she explained.
Teigen had already been on strict bed rest earlier this month but explained she was admitted to the hospital after her bleeding had worsened.
‘Everytime I go to the bathroom it would be blood, and honestly just laying there there would be blood.’
Despite the scare, she assured her fans she and her baby were doing well and said the her son was ‘healthy, growing stronger than Luna or Miles.’

In an update on Monday, Chrissy said she and the baby were ‘completely fine.’
‘Hello from hospital. about to have my second blood transfusion which truly, truly, truly sounds more dramatic than it is. It’s an IV, but instead of fluids, the blood of some kind human being out there,’ she posted.
‘Baby and I are completely fine, just missing the little things like walking…cooking…playing with the other buttbutts.’
Chrissy made the heartbreaking announcement she had lost her child on Wednesday night, where she shared several devastating photos of herself in the aftermath.
‘We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,’ Chrissy posted on Instagram. ‘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.’
Grieving: Teigen shed tears as she sat on the hospital bed
The couple typically don’t name their child until after birth, but Chrissy said they had already started referring to him as ‘Jack.’
‘We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital,’ she explained. ‘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 and her husband John Legend, who share daughter Luna, four, and son Miles, two, announced in the music video Wild they were expecting their third child together.
Chrissy was met with an outpouring of sympathy and support from fans and celebrities alike, including Kim Kardashian, Gabrielle Union, and Hailey Bieber.
‘We’re always here for you and love you guys so much,’ wrote mom-of-four Kim.
