In September, the model, TV and Twitter personality revealed that halfway through her pregnancy, she and John Legend’s son Jack was delivered stillborn following some complications. When she posted photos of herself grieving the loss in the hospital, there were some people who were critical of the move. She wrote in an essay for Medium in October that she wasn’t concerned about them because she knew who she published the photos for.
“I cannot express how little I care that you hate the photos. How little I care that it’s something you wouldn’t have done,” she wrote. “I lived it, I chose to do it, and more than anything, these photos aren’t for anyone but the people who have lived this or are curious enough to wonder what something like this is like. These photos are only for the people who need them.”
