“We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite the bags and bags of blood transfusions,” the post said. “It just wasn’t enough. ”

The couple were praised for being open about their grief and pregnancy struggles.

They have two children, Luna and Miles, who were conceived by FIV. They said Jack was conceived naturally – something Teigen said she didn’t think was possible for her.

With the first two pregnancies, the release said, the couple waited to name the baby until after the birth, but this time they had already started calling “the little guy in my womb” Jack.

“He will always be Jack for us,” the statement read. “Jack has worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be forever. “
