Chrissy Teigen Urges People Struggling With Pregnancy Loss To Speak Out As Kind Stranger Comforts Her

Chrissy Teigen has revealed a stranger tried to comfort her 'quietly' following the loss of her son Jack in September last year, 20 weeks into her pregnancy.

In an interview with Today, Chrissy said a stranger placed flowers into her shopping cart during a trip to a grocery store.

"There was one moment that really struck me, and that was being at the grocery store and somebody just quietly laying flowers in my cart," the 35-year-old explained. "And then I realized that there's so many women that don't get this kind of attention because you just don't know that it happened to them.

"They're living through this privately and quietly, and it just was a big moment for me where I realized that I could be this person that people could see and look up to as somebody that had a platform, where their stories were going to be recognized. For me, that was a very defining moment."

Chrissy has been praised for sharing her pregnancy loss journey with her millions of social media followers. She has now teamed up with Fertility Out Loud as a spokesperson to create a forum to further discuss topics around fertility and pregnancy.

"Coming to terms with not being able to carry again is still really difficult for me because I feel so healthy. I'm like, why?" she explained.

"But then I think about it as my uterus is just not cooperating with me - and it's not a failure."

The TV personality explained why she decided to share photos of the family going through this heartbreaking loss to her 34 million Instagram followers.
