Read Chrissy Teigen's Heartbreaking Response to Critics Who Lambasted Her Miscarriage Photos

After telling fans and followers at the beginning of the month that she had a miscarriage, model and TV personality Chrissy Teigen wrote a blog post detailing her heartbreaking experience. In the post, she also responded to critics who came after her for posting a picture after losing the pregnancy.

Teigen has mostly been quiet on social media following her October 1 post where she told fans and followers that she couldn't carry the pregnancy safely to term. Following the post on October 1, while many fans offered support and prayers for the couple, a few people on Twitter insensitively criticized her for sharing photos taken during an incredibly difficult time.

In the Medium post, Teigen explained that she'd asked Legend and her mother to take the photos, despite the situation being painful and uncomfortable. "I explained to a very hesitant John that I needed them, and that I did NOT want to have to ever ask. That he just had to do it. He hated it. I could tell. It didn't make sense to him at the time," she wrote, going on to explain that she felt that the moment should be remembered the same way their wedding and first two children's births were.

She then addressed people that criticized the photos, by saying that they were meant to help those who had also had that experience. "I cannot express how little I care that you hate the photos. How little I care that it's something you wouldn't have done. I lived it, I chose to do it, and more than anything, these photos aren't for anyone but the people who have lived this or are curious enough to wonder what something like this is like. These photos are only for the people who need them. The thoughts of others do not matter to me," she wrote.

Teigen went on to write thoughtfully about her experience with the epidural. She then said that she, her husband and her mother all said their goodbyes to the baby, who she and Legend had been referring to as Jack. "My mom, John and I each held him and said our own private goodbyes, mom sobbing through Thai prayer. I asked the nurses to show me his hands and feet and I kissed them over and over and over again," she wrote.

Teigen also said that while the experience was heartbreaking, it made her appreciate and find joy in the moments with her two children more often. She also said that since speaking about the experience, she said that strangers have made small acts of kindness towards her in public, like giving her flowers or notes.

She also spoke about why she expressed her grief publicly. "I feel bad our grief was so public because I made the joy so public. I was excited to share our news with the world. Stories leading up to this had been chronicled for all. It's hard to look at them now. I was so positive it would be okay. I feel bad that I made you all feel bad. I always will," she wrote.

She concluded the post by explaining that Jack will always be a part of her and Legend's lives and expressing gratitude for all the support she's received during this difficult time.
