It just wasn’t enough.”

Along with the heartbreaking black and white photos, Teigen also revealed that they planned on naming their lost child Jack. “He will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever… 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.”
