Chrissy Teigen is addressing social media users after sharing that she previously had a life-saving abortion.
The model recently discussed her 2020 pregnancy loss, explaining that she had medical help after learning her son Jack would not survive the pregnancy. Chrissy said during a summit on Sept. 15, “It became very clear around halfway through that he would not survive, and that I wouldn’t either without any medical intervention.”
“Let’s just call it what it was: It was an abortion,” she continued. “An abortion to save my life for a baby that had absolutely no chance. And to be honest, I never, ever put that together until, actually, a few months ago.”
Following the news, Chrissy spoke out on Twitter about the public reaction to her sharing her story.
“I knew this would happen, and honestly I’ve already seen you do your worst so if this makes you feel better, great,” she wrote. “It doesn’t make me feel worse though.”
The Cravings founder shared screenshots of the “brutal” comments section of what she said was Glamour’s Instagram post about her abortion.
“She’s such a drama queen,” one person wrote, as another added, “Why do we need to know this? Seriously.”
