Chrissy Teigen, singer John Legends wife is in the hospital due to her battle with endometriosis. The 35-year-old cookbook author took to her social media accounts to tell fans she was getting ready to have endometriosis surgery.
She’s having the surgery during the same week that would’ve been her son Jack’s due date.
In September 2020, Chrissy Teigen revealed that she had been hospitalized due to excessive bleeding during pregnancy. Sadly, she suffered a miscarriage, and mourned the loss of what would’ve been her third child with husband, singer John Legend. Now, Teigen, 35, is at the hospital again, this time for endometriosis surgery.
She revealed the news of Thursday’s scheduled surgery the day before on Twitter in an emotional post, sharing that her surgery also coincided with with her original due date for Jack, her unborn baby. “My little jack would have been born this week so I’m a bit off,” she wrote. “I truly feel kicks in my belly, but it’s not phantom. I have surgery for endometriosis tomorrow…but the period feeling this month is exactly like baby kicks. Sigh.”
In another tweet later on, Teigen asked her followers for information on their experiences with endometriosis surgery. “What is the recovery-difficulty level? Like can I make soup after,” she asked.
Kenyan media personality Jahmby Koikai spoke up offering words of comfort.
She told Chrissy about her 21 surgeries and many reacted with sympathy.

Chrissy Teigen was shocked with her response and comforted her as well.
Here’w what this medical condition is:
Endometriosis, is a condition in which tissue that’s similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus and on other parts of the body where it doesn’t belong, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes. While endometriosis is particularly common in women in their 30s and 40s, it can affect girls as young as 15.
Endometriosis can cause symptoms like painful period cramps, chronic pain, bleeding or spotting between periods, and digestive issues. Endometriosis may also cause digestive issues like diarrhea, constipation, bloating, or nausea, and in serious cases, can lead to infertility.
