The model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen said late Wednesday that she and her husband, the musician John Legend, had lost their third child, a son, days after she posted on social media about suffering pregnancy complications.“Driving home from the hospital with no baby, ” Ms. Teigen wrote on Twitter. “How can this be real. ”Ms. Teigen also posted a black-and-white photograph to Twitter and Instagram that showed her sitting on a hospital bed with her hands clasped in a prayer-like position, seemingly in tears. Ms. Teigen, 34, joined a long list of celebrities who have broken a social taboo in recent years to speak out about pregnancy loss.

Last year, Ms. Legend publicly sparred with President Trump, who called her “filthy mouthed” in a Twitter post. Ms. Teigen fired back with expletives — including one that Mr. Trump famously used in a recording that surfaced shortly before the 2016 presidential election — and the spat went viral. She has also used social media to advocate for progressive causes. In 2015, for example, she spoke out in support of protesters in Ferguson, Mo., and led a celebrity-driven campaign for reproductive rights fatal shootings at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado. She has also been the target of vitriol on the platform, and as reaction poured in after the couple’s loss, with many people like the comedian Sarah Silverman expressing sympathy, a hash tag “Oh Chrissy” was co-opted by Ms. Teigen’
