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

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

She explained that she made the “difficult decision” to terminate the pregnancy after coming to terms with the fact that she and Jack probably wouldn’t survive.

“Let’s just call it what it was: it was an abortion. An abortion to save my life for a baby who had absolutely no chance. And to be honest, I never actually put that together until a few months ago,” Chrissy confessed, according to THR.
