Chrissy Teigen has made a return to social media after taking time off in the wake of the loss of her third child, Jack.

Earlier this month, Teigen shared the news with her followers on Instagram, revealing that she suffered excessive bleeding during her pregnancy.

The 34-year-old wrote on Instagram that she and her husband, the musician John Legend, are “shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before”, stating: “We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn't enough." 

Teigen had not posted anything on social media since then. However, now, the former model has commented on a post shared by Betches Media on Instagram.

The account reposts comedy tweets from around the world and on Saturday shared one from Kate Morehart that read: “Just booked an eyebrow waxing appointment and I’m excited I’ll be wearing a mask so I don’t have to hear ”mustache too?"

The post garnered more than 108,000 likes, including one from Teigen, who commented: “Finally, a giggle. Thank you.”

Teigen’s comment comes after ITV’s Loose Women  received 261 Ofcom complaints after holding a discussion on the show about Teigen’s decision to share the news of her pregnancy loss on social media.

Christine Lampard began the discussion by reading Teigen’s statement, before stating: “It’s just heart-wrenching, isn’t it?”

She then asked fellow panellist Carol McGiffin about how it felt seeing the model’s post online.

“It’s so sad, it’s absolutely tragic what has happened to her,” McGiffin responded, before saying she felt “a bit uncomfortable” looking at the pictures shared by Teigen. “I felt like I was intruding in a way,” she said.

“I just felt like this is not really something I should be witnessing, and I’m not judging her and I’m not saying she’s wrong to do it, but I don’t know… I just think it’s such a private thing. I kind of question whether there are some things that you shouldn’t have to share on social media.”

Fellow panellist Jane Moore also questioned whether Teigen was “in the right headspace of that moment to make that decision to put it out there”.

The organisation added that it is currently assessing the complaints against its broadcasting rules, but has not yet decided whether to carry out an investigation.
