The couple got married one year ago this month.
Tragic news for TV host and model Chrissy Teigen and her husband singer John Legend who lost their third child after Teigen suffered pregnancy complications.
The couple shared the news on their respective social media accounts.
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” the couple said in a formal statement posted to each of their Twitter pages.
Teigen was taken to Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Sunday after revealing that she had been on bed rest and bleeding for “a little less than a month.”
Sadly, it appears the bleeding might have been signs of the baby in stress.
“We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions,” the post said. “It just wasn’t enough.”
On Teigen’s Instagram account on Wednesday night, she shared that she and her husband had decided to call the baby Jack.
With the first two pregnancies, the statements said the couple waited to name the baby until after delivering, but this time they had already begun calling “the little guy in my belly” Jack.
“He will always be Jack to us,” the statement said. “Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever.”
The celebrity couple are parents to 4-year old daughter Luna and 2-year old son Miles, both conceived via in vitro fertilization.
Teigen was recently quoted stating that she felt the IVF pregnancies were “untouchable and safe” but that her third pregnancy conceived without medical intervention felt fragile or “eggshelly” as she described it.
The family seems determined to grieve but grow stronger because of undergoing this ordeal.
“But everyday can’t be full of sunshine,” they said. “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.”
The HBO hit series Game of Thrones is having a baby boom as the actors who protrayed The Mountain, Sansa Stark and Jon Snow and Ygritte all welcomed babies recently or are expecting a child.
Iceland’s Hafthor Julius Björnsson, who played Sir Gregor Clegane, “The Mountain,” announced Sunday that his wife Kelsey Henson welcomed a baby boy.
“After an extremely hard 2 hours and 19 mins of pushing our healthy, strong, beautiful boy arrived,” he captioned a series of photos of himself, his wife and newborn on Instagram, sharing that the baby weighed over 7 pounds.

26.09.2020 . 6am Kelsey woke me up telling me she had been losing her water, I immediately jumped out of bed and said alright let’s go, she stayed calm and replied with a laugh and said, no we are not going yet. I then asked to call our midwives to which she replied again no let’s just wait for awhile. . 7:15am we call our friend to come photograph the labour, the midwife and doula. Once the midwife arrived she checked out the progress and we were surprised to learn Kelsey was already 5cm dilated. The midwife asked if she was ready to go to the birthing centre or wanted to try out that bath at home and Kelsey, still remaining calm, decided to try the bath at home. While I was filling up the bath things started escalating quickly, the contractions were much stronger lasting over a minute and were anywhere from 2-3 min apart. The midwife then said she thought we should head to the clinic and finally Kelsey agreed it was time. . 8:40am. We arrived at the Björkin, the birthing centre, after a quick 10 min drive. Right away Kelsey knew exactly what she wanted and asked how long until the birthing pool would be filled. The next fifteen minutes Kelsey paced around between contractions waiting for the tub to be filled. . 9:00am She was in the tub and immediately started to push. Things escalated super quickly. Throughout it all she did amazing. She was in complete control of her mind and body. She had strong opinions on exactly what she wanted and where she wanted to be. I am completely in awe of how strong she is, and so proud of her for everything she did to prepare herself throughout her pregnancy. It cannot be put into words how proud I am and how I feel about this experience. . 11:19am After an extremely hard 2 hours and 19 mins of pushing our healthy, strong, beautiful boy arrived weighing 3530 grams, 52 cm long. . To finish the most beautiful, awe inspiring labour was the most wonderful phone call to my daughter to introduce her to her new little brother ❤️ . 5:30pm We arrive back at home both mom and baby doing super well and spent our first night as three together. . We have decided on a name and cannot wait to share it with you all soon.
Henson wrote on her Instagram account, “Our beautiful baby boy made his grand entrance into the world at 11:19 AM on September 26th 2020 after a short and intense six hours.”
“The birth was the most powerful, life-changing, empowering thing I’ve ever done in my entire life. We are all doing well and settling in at home as three!”

Congrats to all!
Congrats to model Gigi Hadid and her fiancé singer and former One Direction band member Zayn Malik on the birth of their first child together, a daughter.
Hadid and Malik both announced their daughter’s birth on Instagram on Wednesday, sharing the first two photos of her.

Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka and Tsvetana Pironkova made the final rounds and Kim Clijsters, Vera Zvonareva, Tatjana Maria, Olga Govortsova, Kateryna Bondarenko and Patricia Maria Tig were formidable opponents in the early rounds.
Williams is featured in a lot of campaigns that celebrate woment’s professional tennis players who are mothers
And this year, there has been a lot of celebration of semi-finalist Azarenka who gave birth of her son, Leo, after winning back to back Australian Opens titles in 2012 and 2013.
When asked about her come back durind the press conference after the 27 seed upset fellow Belarusianto, 5th seed Aryna Sabalenka , she said:
“Pretty incredible, huh?”
“Well, there is a lot that goes into it in terms of balancing, you know, a lot of things, and juggling two things.
“But identifying myself or other players just as mothers, I think that’s not the only thing that we are. I think we are part of, you know, being a mother, we are also tennis players. We are also women who have dreams and goals and passions.
“So that’s, I think, being a role as a mom. Everybody has their own priority, they have their own list of where they rank being a mother is, but we are not – it’s not just being a mother. Your life doesn’t stop.”
She had custody battles with her son’s dad and had to overcome several injuries and other personal issues to almost triumph once again.
And finally, she has joined Williams as a leader and advocate for fellow female competitors:
Last year, Azarenka and Williams, along with Venus Williams, Johanna Konta and several other stars, successfully campaigned for the introduction of improved ranking protection for expectant mothers playing on the circuit.
Prior to the 2019 season, female players had to return from giving birth or injury within three years to be able to utilize a special ranking for eight tour events in a year.
However, this year, players returning from childbirth or injury can use their previously held ranking to enter up to 12 tournaments during a three-year period.
They will also not be required to face a seeded player in the first round of a tournament. Azarenka said: “We have the power to change the rules and we have done.” The 29-year-old says that “is what [she] wants [her] legacy to be”.
Azarenka, Williams, Clisters and all the moms are proving that mothers can do it all.
Kim Clijsters won three of her 4 Grand Slams after the birth of her child.
Lindsay Davenport won 3 of her 55 Career titles after giving birth to her son.
And Olympic Gold medalist and seven times Grand slam winner, in 1914, Dorothea Lambert Chambers became the first mother to win a Grand Slam crown.

Ello! A quick message from me as I have some personal news that I wanted to share with you… Last week, with the help of an amazing delivery team, Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter – Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. We are completely in love with her. Both mum and baby are doing amazing and we are on cloud nine over here. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Lots of love and I’ll see you when it’s time to come back, Ed x
“We are completely in love with her. Both mum and baby are doing amazing and we are on cloud nine over here,” he added. “We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Lots of love and I’ll see you when it’s time to come back, Ed x.
Sheeran and Seaborn first met at school when Sheeran was 11. They reconnected in the summer of 2015 and began dating.
Sheeran proposed in December 2017, and the pair married in January 2019.
Last year, the couple appeared in their first music video together for his single “Put It All on Me,” where they were seen in their London apartment dancing and cuddling for the camera.
Beneath each couple was a caption with an explanation of how they fell in love. For Sheeran and Seaborn, it read: “Back in high school, Ed and Cherry were crushing hard.”
“They made out at the castle on the hill,” the caption continued. “A few years ago they reconnected, there were fireworks. They married in January 2019.”
A California judge has granted rapper Nicki Minaj‘s husband Kenneth Petty’s petition to lift a court-ordered curfew that restricted his travel to that state.
TMZ reported in July that the 40-year old filed the legal documents requesting a judge to modify the terms of his pretrial release conditions, as he has a pending criminal case.
The prosecuotrs did not oppose the request and it was granted on July 31, pro forma, allowing Petty to travel with Minaj as her manager and be in the hospital room when she gives birth this year.
Minaj announced on social media that she is expecting by posting a series of maternity photos on her Instagram account.
In the photos, the “Superbass” singer appears to be in her third trimester, possibly.
Ciara debuted the video for her latest singe “Rooted” featuring Ester Dean last Thursday at midnight and in it, she appears very pregnant right before giving birth to her third child.
The visuals are stunning and feature dancers donning natural ethnic hairstyles like bantu knots, afros, braids and cornrows and messages of solidarity to the the late John Lewis who recently passed away, the Black Lives Matter movement and Black women and men who died in police encounters in recent and distant past.
That is amazing because if you watch the video linked below, you will she was showing all of her very energetic dance moves and even did a twerk or two!
It is a powerful song and comes on the heels of the release of Beyonce‘s pro-Africa “Black is King” visual album that debuted on Disney Plus earlier in the month. I can dig it.
Her son, Winn Harrison, is featured in mom’sbelly but as are his older siblings, 6-year old Future and 3-year old Sienna who make cameos by mom who is donning a extra large afro, and grills with the word “Melanin” on them.
She is the latest celebrity mom to appear in a music video.
Katy Perry famously revealed her first pregnancy in the video for her song “Never Worn White” in March. An as we routinely report over the years as the institutional source of bump watch news on the Internet, Carrie Underwood, Cardi B, Natalie Portman, Beyonce, P!nk, Deborah Cox, and Whitney Houston all were in music videos while expecting.
