Chrissy shared her and John's devastating news on Instagram, alongside five incredibly moving black and white pictures taken at the hospital before the birth. One of the images features the couple holding baby Jack in their arms.

"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we've never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn't enough," Chrissy began her post.

"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about," Chrissy said

"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."

Chrissy went on to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers, adding that they were "so grateful" for their lives and their "wonderful babies Luna and Miles".
