Now, it was pretty emotional when Chrissy took to social media to announce that she and her husband had lost their third unborn child...
It was truly heartbreaking.
In the post that contained photos of the moment they said goodbye to baby Jack, the heartbroken mom apologized to her son...
She then acknowledged the things that she and John are grateful for...
"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 every day 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."
And, just a few weeks after the tragic loss...
Chrissy returned to social media to share an essay she wrote for Medium about her harrowing experience.
In the deeply personal piece simply titled "Hi," the star started off by explaining that she didn't know when she would be ready to address her son's death.
She took some time to thank fans for their support...
"I didn’t really know how I would start this, no matter the room or state I was in, but it feels right to begin with a thank you. For weeks, our floors have been covered in flowers of kindness. "Notes have flooded in and have each been read with our own teary eyes. Social media messages from strangers have consumed my days, most starting with, 'you probably won’t read this, but…'. I can assure you, I did."
Chrissy then moved onto talking about the day she lost Jack.
"One of the standout moments from that morning (or evening? I have no idea) was me going through the halls of labor and delivery, and John saying “What, is there a f**king party going on here??" Here we were, just wheeled down to a new floor, me covered in a thin blanket to hide, knowing I was about to fully deliver what was supposed to be the 5th member of our beautiful family, a son, only to say goodbye moments later. "People cheered and laughed right outside our door, understandably for a new life born and celebrated. You kind of wonder how anyone is thinking about anyone but you."
Chrissy explained that she was admitted to hospital after persistent bleeding and multiple blood transfusions, and diagnosed with partial placenta abruption.
"At this point I had already come to terms with what would happen: I would have an epidural and be induced to deliver our 20 week old, a boy that would have never survived in my belly (please excuse these simple terms). "I was previously on bedrest for over a month, just trying to get the little dude to 28 weeks, a “safer" zone for the fetus. My doctors diagnosed me with partial placenta abruption. I had always had placenta problems. I had to deliver Miles a month early because his stomach wasn’t getting enough food from my placenta. But this was my first abruption. We monitored it very closely, hoping for things to heal and stop."
"I could have spent these days at the hospital, but not much of a difference would have been made. I was still seen by doctors at home, silently twisting their negative words into positives, thinking that everything might still turn out okay."
"Finally, I had a pretty bad night in bed, after a not-so-great ultrasound, where I was bleeding a bit more than even my abnormal amount. My bleeding was getting heavier and heavier. The fluid around Jack had become very low — he was barely able to float around. At some points, I swore it was so low I could lay on my back and feel his arms and legs from outside my belly."
Chrissy then described the heartwrenching moment she was told it was time to say goodbye.
"After a couple nights at the hospital, my doctor told me exactly what I knew was coming — it was time to say goodbye.
"I cried a little at first, then went into full-blown convulsions of snot and tears, my breath not able to catch up with my own incredibly deep sadness. Even as I write this now, I can feel the pain all over again. Oxygen was placed over my nose and mouth, and that was the first picture you saw. Utter and complete sadness."
"I’m not sure I’ll ever forget the experience."

I obviously never had to dilate much, he was still a tiny little guy. "I had been laying on my side, switching sides every hour or so, whenever the nurse told me to. I remember laying on my right side, looking opposite of John, when I was told to make my switch. I opened my legs and started to turn to face John and just like that, he was on his way out. The doctors yelled for a bit and…I don’t know what to say, even now. He was out."
"People say an experience like this creates a hole in your heart. A hole was certainly made, but it was filled with the love of something I loved so much. It doesn’t feel empty, this space. It feels full."
"Maybe *too* bursting full, actually. I find myself randomly crying, thinking about how happy I am to have two insanely wonderful little toddlers who fill this house with love. I smother them with love while they “Moooooooom!!!!!" me. I don’t care."
It's been months since the family's tragic loss...
And slowly but surely, they have been learning to live with their grief and build their lives back together.
It's clear to see that Chrissy is starting to get back to her old, bubbly self...
Though she is still incredibly open about her struggles.
And recently, she's opened up about how a friend wrote to her after the tragic event.
And that friend was none other than the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.
Speaking on an episode of Watch What Happens Live, Chrissy called Meghan "wonderful."
"She had written to me about baby Jack, and loss," Chrissy revealed. "She is really wonderful, and so kind — just as kind as everyone says she is."
"That's why you look at everything, and you're like, 'My God, what is absolutely wrong with people that they have to make this person out to be so malicious or so crazy when it's just as simple as them being as kind as everybody says they are,'" she went on.
The news comes after Meghan Markle herself also opened up about her own experiences with miscarriage.
Writing a personal essay for the New York Times titled "The Losses We Share," she delved into her own grief as she went through a similar experience earlier that year.
We're glad both women have found the strength to rebuild their lives after such devastating losses.
