Chrissy Teigen Says Pregnancy Loss Was A 'Transformative Experience' That Saved Her
Chrissy Teigen has spoken out about her pregnancy loss, telling Ellen DeGeneres it was a "transformative experience" that "really saved" her.
Chrissy, 35, sadly lost her son Jack, four months ago after complications during her pregnancy. Ever since, she has been praised by fans for candidly sharing her heartbreaking miscarriage journey.
And appearing on The Ellen Show this week, Chrissy said she now feels like "a new person" after the devastating loss.
"It was a really transformative thing for me and in a way it really saved me, because I don't think that I would've discovered therapy and then sobriety and this path of feeling good about myself and feeling like a new person," she said.
At the time, Chrissy posted a series of images from the hospital, after her and husband, John Legend, first lost Jack.

Speaking about the pictures, she added: "Looking at those pictures now, it seems like so long ago. And also, of course, everything was such a blur. Even thinking back to it now, I am still in therapy about it and I'm still coming to terms with it."
Chrissy explained this week is especially tough, as baby Jack would have been due.
"I have maternity clothes, and there are things that I bought for my eighth month and my ninth month. So it's just hard because he would've been born this week, so you look at those things and you have these constant reminders," she added.
Model Chrissy is also mum to Luna, four and Miles, two. "It's been so beautiful to see my kids, the way they talk about him. We'll be going to the beach or something and they'll say, 'Is baby Jack with us right now? Do you think he's up in the clouds?' It's just so beautiful and so sweet," she told Ellen.
"You really don't know the meaning of the word 'unimaginable' until something like that happens to you.
"And then afterwards, there's such a spiral of things you could've done differently and you start to get really tough on yourself. But what you learn through it about yourself is such a wild, incredible thing, and this week, we're thinking about [Jack] especially."
Our thoughts are with Chrissy, John and all the family this week.
