At the start of October, Teigen shared the heartbreaking news of her miscarriage on social media, revealing she and husband John Legend had chosen the name Jack for their third child.

She said on Instagram: “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."
