The famous family’s appearance came more than a month after the couple announced that they lost their son after complications that left Teigen hospitalized. The Lip Sync Battle cohost, who was diagnosed with a partial placenta abruption 20 weeks into her pregnancy, wrote an emotional essay about her pregnancy loss for Medium last month.

“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,” Teigen wrote on October 27. “We monitored it very closely, hoping for things to heal and stop. In bed, I bled and bled, lightly but all day, changing my own diapers every couple of hours when the blood got uncomfortable to lay in. I actually became an adult diaper expert for my own personal entertainment.”

As Teigen’s bleeding became heavier and heavier, her fluid became “very low.” After several blood transfusions, the Chrissy’s Court star was told that her son “wouldn’t survive.”

“It was time to say goodbye,” she wrote. “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. … Utter and complete sadness.”

“We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital,” she captioned a series of photos from the hospital on September 30. “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. 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.”
