Chrissy Teigen asked her husband John Legend to help her document the devastating loss of their stillborn son.

The model and TV personality delivered a stillborn son the couple named Jack in late September, after she suffered heavy uterine bleeding.

Chrissy and John broke the news of the family tragedy to fans online with a series of black-and-white shots of the stars mourning their third child in the hospital.

Now Chrissy is pouring her heart out about the medical cause of her loss in an emotional open letter for Medium.com.

Chrissy reveals she was diagnosed with partial placenta abruption, which caused her heavy bleeding, and the moment doctors confirmed their son would not survive.

"After a couple nights at the hospital, my doctor told me exactly what I knew was coming - it was time to say goodbye," she writes. "He just wouldn't survive this, and if it went on any longer, I might not either."

"I was told it would be time to let go in the morning. 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," she explained, referring to the images she shared on Instagram.

Chrissy, 34, seen in public for the first time since losing her baby, was criticized for taking photographs of her tragic loss. She explained why she felt it necessary to photograph such personal heartbreak - even though it was clear John was dead set against it.

"It didn't make sense to him at the time," she explains, "but I knew I needed to know of this moment forever..."

Addressing her critics, she declared:

"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."

Chrissy was thankful for all the messages of condolence from fans and friends, some of whom have experienced similar tragedies. She assured followers she read every single message.

"Thank you so much to every single person who has had us in their thoughts or gone as far as to send us your love and stories," she adds. "We are so incredibly lucky."

Chrissy Teigen's mother, Vilailuck shared a heartbreaking video on her Instagram account after losing her grandson.

Chrissy delivered a stillborn baby boy over the weekend, after she suffered a miscarriage and her baby died in utero. Chrissy and her husband, John Legend, named the baby Jack.

Vilailuck, aka Pepper Thai, captioned her video, "My heart aches love you so much baby Jack."

In the video, Vilailuck weeps softly while cradling and praying over her grandson Jack.

Chrissy was hospitalized over the weekend due to heavy bleeding. The 34-year-old model and social media influencer announced the devastating news on Sept. 30, as she shared a B&W photo of herself sitting on her hospital bed crying.

"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we've never felt before," she wrote in the caption. "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."

Teigen also shared a B&W photo of a doctor administering an epidural injection in preparation to induce labor. In another touching photo, she and Legend are seen mourning their stillborn son.

Over the weekend, Chrissy shared her medical complications with her followers:

"I was always, always bleeding. I'm about halfway through pregnancy and blood has been going for a month... maybe a little less than a month. But we're talking more than your period, girls, but definitely not spotting. A lot of people spot and it's usually fine. Mine was a lot. Every time I'd go to the bathroom, it would be blood, but honestly, just laying there would be blood. But today the big difference was that it kind of was like you were to turn a faucet on to low and leave it there. It was at the point today where it was, like, never stopping."

Teigen had been on mandatory bedrest for weeks after periodic spotting and profuse bleeding.

Doctors usually prescribe the female hormone Progesterone to women with a history of bleeding to prevent a miscarriage.

But Progesterone can be both a blessing and a curse to pregnant women, as the hormone can cause excessive uterine bleeding that leads to a spontaneous abortion.

Teigen added that while she and husband John Legend, who are also parents to 4-year-old Luna and two-year-old Miles, don't usually choose their children's names until "just before we leave the hospital", they had called their unborn son Jack.

"Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever," she wrote, before sharing a personal message to Jack.

"To our Jack - I'm so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn't give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you," she wrote.

Teigen, who was in her second trimester of pregnancy, tweeted that she had a "really scary" experience. She said she passed a "huge clot" and "the scramble to hear the [baby's] heartbeat seemed like hours."

Later, Teigen tweeted the fetus was okay. "Basically he's the strongest, coolest dude in the s-------t house. His house is just falling apart," she said of her unborn baby. "It didn't have a good foundation to begin with, though. He didn't have the strongest chance at the very, very beginning."

Thanking her fans for their "positive energy, thoughts and prayers", Teigen wrote:

"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."

Teigen later tweeted: "Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real."
