“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before.,” Chrissy wrote. “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 had been in hospital for the past week, due to her high-risk pregnancy. She had explained she’d been bleeding heavily, as she neared the half-way mark of her pregnancy.

“I was always, always bleeding,” she told her Instagram followers on Monday. “The blood has been going on for a little less than a month. More than a period, definitely not spotting. Every time I’d go to the bathroom, it would be blood. Even just laying there, it would be blood. Today the big difference was it was like if you’d turn a faucet on to low and leave it. I was at the point today where I was never stopping bleeding, and that’s obviously really bad.”

Chrissy and John revealed they were expecting their third child in August. She had explained that the pregnancy was a surprise as she ‘didn’t think’ she could get pregnant naturally. The couple’s other children: Luna, 4, and Miles, 2, were conceived via IVF.
