Since sharing the news of her heartbreaking pregnancy loss with her fans and followers on September 30th, Chrissy Teigen has taken a break from posting on social media. On Saturday, however, she chimed in on a post that seems to have given her some much-needed comedic relief.

The post, a screenshot of a tweet shared on the Betches Instagram account, read, “Just booked an eyebrow waxing appointment and I’m excited I’ll be wearing a mask so I don’t have to hear ‘mustache too?'”

“Finally, a giggle. Thank you,” Teigen commented. Many fans responded with supportive messages and well wishes, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Teigen also received an outpouring of support earlier this month after sharing intimate photos from the hospital showing herself and husband John Legend dealing with the tragic loss of their unborn son, who they had named Jack.

“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” she 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.”

While some criticized Teigen for posting about the personal moment online, many parents who had experienced similar grief thanked her for helping to normalize and destigmatize the experience.

Out thoughts are with Teigen, her family, and all those who have lost pregnancies. While we know the grief is ongoing, we are glad Teigen was able to share a laugh and a moment of lightness over some widely relatable upper lip hair realness.

Chrissy Teigen ‘Shocked, In Deep Pain’ After Pregnancy Loss, Shares Son’s Name

KEY POINTS

  • Chrissy Teigen lost her baby after being hospitalized due to pregnancy complications
  • Teigen didn’t expect to conceive naturally
  • John Legend’s wife shared last month that she had really bad pregnancy headaches

Chrissy Teigen is shocked and in deep pain after losing her baby days after she was admitted to the hospital due to pregnancy complications. The grieving celebrity mom took to social media to relay the sad news to her followers, who were also waiting for the arrival of her baby.

“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” she wrote 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.”

Teigen added that she and husband John Legend don’t usually decide on baby names until after they are born. However, for some reason, they had been calling her baby “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,” Teigen continued.

“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.”

Teigen also thanked those who reached out to them and sent them positive energy, thoughts and prayers. She said they really appreciated such gestures. Teigen chose to end her message with a positive note by being grateful for their lives and her two wonderful babies, Luna and Miles. She added that while they are dealing with their darkest days, they will hug and love each other harder until they get through them.

Teigen has been updating her fans about her pregnancy journey on Twitter. In August, she admitted that she didn’t expect to get pregnant naturally. For years, she’s been doing pregnancy tests every month, wishing that it would turn out positive one day. When it did, she was surprised because of the timing. It happened a few weeks after she had her breast implants removed.

She took a pregnancy test before the surgery and it was negative. After realizing that she was pregnant during the procedure, she prayed hard that everything would be okay and it did until she had complications over the weekend.

Prior to that, she also suffered pregnancy headaches and was happy that she was allowed to do neck muscle botox and a combo of beta-blocker shots and radio wave frequency because her headaches were so bad.

Why Trump’s alpha debate strategy will backfire

Last night, a president with the same abysmal 43 percent approval rating he’s had more or less throughout his miserable tenure was granted an extended opportunity to speak directly to an American public that has suffered through an impossible and horrifying seven months of hardship. Instead of appealing to the better angels of our nature, he spent nearly two hours of his first televised debate with former Vice President Joe Biden behaving like an insufferable, Thanksgiving-wrecking narcissist, impervious to the deleterious effect of his manic hatefulness on the audience and falsely confident that riling up his base with aggressive non-sequiturs would somehow deliver him back to the Oval Office. It did not work, not for him, not for his campaign, not for the Republican Party and especially not for the rapidly vanishing dream that a Democrat and Republican can stand in a room and debate one another, if not with civility, at least with some coherence.The first of three presidential debates between Trump and Biden was ugly in a way that normal language can’t quite capture. Moderated by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, the lived experience of it was like watching a plane carrying someone you care about deeply drop out of the sky in mid-flight and explode into flames. I’ve been to at least 10 funerals that were more fun and spiritually fulfilling than this debate. To call it unbearable would be an affront to the emotion of hopelessness. But if you cut through the thick miasma of these two doddering old men jabbering at each other, what you’ll see is a race that is probably unchanged. And that’s bad for the president and good for Joe Biden.The bottom line is that the president has consistently trailed Biden by 7 percent or more in national polls for months, through upheavals and mass death and scandal, and he needed not just to fight to a draw but to fundamentally change the dynamic of the race. Either Trump or his feckless campaign apparently thought that the answer to this problem was to be the worst possible version of himself.Trump’s strategy fundamentally misunderstands the nature of his electoral peril. Even before the coronavirus disaster, he was mired in the mid-40s in public approval ratings, a problem that can’t be attributed solely to negative partisanship. Throughout his presidency, he has alienated the small number of genuinely independent voters by virtue of his cartoonish contempt for areas of the country that didn’t vote for him, his amplification of fringe right-wing voices previously relegated to the Dark Web, and his unique inability to even masquerade as someone who represents all Americans. A consistently strong economy and a period of relative calm in America’s foreign relations were not nearly enough to get him within sniffing distance of majority support, even at his high points. His inner circle, still drunk on his fluke Electoral College victory in 2016, has never been willing or able to convince him to
