Teigen, 34, shared the heartbreaking news on Instagram, along with a series of photos of the couple and the baby at the hospital.

"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before," she opened up on the post.

"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," she added.

We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. 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. . . We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in 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. . . 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. . . Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you. . . We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. 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 couple, who are parents to daughter Luna, 4, and Miles, 2, also took to Twitter their sadness.

Legend, 41, wrote, "We love you, Jack."

Teigen also wrote, "Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real."

Last Sunday night, Chrissy was hospitalized for excessive bleeding. This has been happening for over a month now due to her having a weak placenta, reports earlier said.

To end her post, Teigen could only thank everyone for the support: "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."
