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

The happy news came almost two years after she and John lost their son Jack at 20 weeks pregnant. 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 were likely to 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 put this together until a few months ago,” Chrissy confessed, according to THR.

In her pregnancy announcement, Chrissy described the last few years as a “blurring of feelings” after losing Jack and then struggling to conceive through IVF. Now her home is filled with “joy” again.

“I don’t think I’ll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nervousness but so far everything is perfect and beautiful and I feel hopeful and great. Ok, phew, it was very hard to keep that down for so long!’
