The TV presenter also added that the couple had called the baby Jack.
“We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital,” she wrote.
“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,” she added.
Chrissy then thanked fans for their “positive energy, thoughts and prayers”.
“We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience.
“But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it,” she wrote.
Meanwhile multi-award-winning musician John shared her post writing: “We love you, Jack.”
