Chrissy Teigen continues to lament her recent second-trimester pregnancy loss, saying the long-term effects of the debilitating ordeal serve as a “frustrating” reminder of “what could have been.”
The cookbook author and former model slipped into a beige dress and shared a revealing post on social media on Wednesday, reflecting on her postpartum body and her “bump” left over from the loss of her late son Jack, which Teigen shared with her husband John Legende.
“This is me and my body just yesterday. Even though I’m no longer pregnant, every glance in the mirror reminds me of what could have been,” the TV host, 35, wrote on Instagram. “And I have no idea why I still have this bump, honestly.”
While the “Cravings” author admitted that seeing herself in that light is “frustrating”, she added that she is “proud of where this whole journey took” [her] body and mind in other ways. “

“I love being pregnant, so much, and I’m sorry I’ll never stay again,” Teigen pressed. “But I’m lucky to have two amazing little ones who turn into great little people more and more every single day. Anyhoo. Love you guys.”
Teigen announced the loss of the couple’s third child in October and immediately disconnected from social media as she entered the coping process.

Weeks later, Teigen wrote an essay on Medium describing his experience. She thanked her friends, family and fans when she, Legend and their two children – Luna, 4 and Miles, 2 – recovered from the ordeal.
“After a few nights in the hospital, my doctor told me exactly what I knew was coming – it was time to say goodbye,” the star said at the time of the loss. “He just would not survive this, and if it continued longer, I might not either.”
