Chrissy announced she was expecting on Instagram back in August, posting photos of her blossoming baby bump.

The happy news came nearly two years after she and John lost their son Jack 20 weeks into her pregnancy. She later revealed that her late son’s passing was the result of a life-saving abortion, not a miscarriage as she originally stated.

She explained that she made the ‘difficult decision’ to terminate the pregnancy after coming to terms with the fact that she nor Jack would likely survive. 

‘Let’s just call it what it was: It was an abortion. 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,’ confessed Chrissy, according to THR
