As Chrissy noted, “the last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least.” In 2020, she suffered a pregnancy loss at 20 weeks, with her and John sharing they had named the baby Jack. The pair have spoken about their grieving process and the ways that they’ve continued to honor Jack.
“That was difficult,” John recently told BBC’s Desert Island Discs about sharing the pregnancy loss. “I was hesitant to share it. But I think Chrissy was really right in encouraging us to share it because I think they really were powerful for a lot of people, and way more people than anybody realizes go through this.”
When Chrissy and John found out they’re expecting again, they decided to hold off on publicly sharing the news right away.
“Every appointment I’ve said to myself, ‘Ok if it’s healthy today I’ll announce’ but then I breathe a sigh of relief to hear a heartbeat and decide I’m just too nervous still,” the Cravings author stated in her Aug. 3 posts. “I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nerves but so far, everything is perfect and beautiful and I’m feeling hopeful and amazing.”
