The 36-year-old television personality lost a baby boy tragically halfway through her pregnancy in October 2020. She is already a mother to Miles, 4, and Luna, 6, and is expecting a third child with husband John Legend. 

 The former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model also discussed how shocked she was to learn that she had an abortion rather than a miscarriage to save her life for her baby who had "no chance" of surviving in a recent interview. 

According to Chrissy, who was pregnant with Jack, John, and her third child two years ago, "I had to make a lot of difficult and heartbreaking decisions.
Around the halfway point, it became abundantly clear that without medical help, neither he nor I would survive.

"Let's just call it what it was: It was an abortion," she continued.

"An abortion to save my life for a child who had no chance at all.
And to be  honest, I didn't put that together until a few months ago.  

Her 'All of Me' hit maker husband, 43, was only able to convince her she hadn't miscarried after the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, which had previously protected women's rights to an abortion, in June of this year.
I froze, feeling odd that I hadn't made sense of it in that way, the speaker continued.
All the headlines said it was a miscarriage after I announced to the world that we had experienced one. I felt foolish that it had taken me more than a year to actually understand that we had had an abortion, and I got really angry that I hadn't said what it was in the first place.
