"I Knew This Would Happen"

Chrissy Teigen is unbothered by critics who have attacked her following her admission to having an abortion two years ago. The cookbook author took to Instagram following her revelation to respond to the scrutiny.


“I knew this would happen, and honestly I’ve already seen you do your worst,” Chrissy said of those who got wind of her comments at Propper Daley’s “A Day of Unreasonable Conversation” summit. “If this makes you feel better, great,” the celebrity, who is presently expecting a child with her husband, added. “It doesn’t make me feel worse, though,” Chrissy shared.

The Cravings did admit that the comments calling her everything from an attention seeker to a liar were brutal at best. “This isn’t like, The Daily Mail or something,” she told her fans and critics. “It’s the Glamour magazine comment thread,” Teigen exclaimed.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen’s son died due to pregnancy complications in 2020. Chrissy visited the doctor after nearly a month of heavy bleeding only to find that her baby did not have enough fluids to survive.

“Two years ago, when I was pregnant with Jack, John and my third child, I had to make a lot of difficult and heartbreaking decisions,” Chrissy told “A Day of Unreasonable Conversation” summit attendees. “It became very clear around halfway through that he would not survive, and that I wouldn’t either without any medical intervention,” the celebrity mom shared at the event.

“Let’s just call it what it was: It was an abortion,” Teigen shared. “An abortion to save my life for a baby that had absolutely no chance,” the cookbook author revealed. “And to be honest, I never, ever put that together until, actually, a few months ago,” Chrissy told attendees.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen held a memorial service for Jack last year. The couple’s older children, Luna and Miles, participated in the at-home ceremony. John and Chrissy are expecting their fourth child to arrive next year.
