Loose Women star Carol McGiffin has been criticised for saying Chrissy Teigen’s miscarriage post made her feel “uncomfortable”.
Chrissy confirmed she and her husband John Legend had tragically lost their baby son in a heartbreaking Instagram post.
The model included a number of intimate photos of the couple with their late son in hospital.
What did Carol McGiffin say on Loose Women?
The devastating news was discussed on Thursday’s Loose Women.
Carol said Chrissy and John’s loss is “so sad and tragic” but she felt “uncomfortable” seeing the images.
She continued: “I have to say that I did feel a little bit uncomfortable looking at them because I felt like I was intruding in a way.
“I know that she’s put them up there and I know that she’s had a lot of followers and fans who care deeply for what’s going on with her whole pregnancy up until yesterday.
“But I just felt like this was not something I should be witnessing.”
I just felt like this was not something I should be witnessing.
Carol added: “I’m not judging her and saying that she’s wrong to do it but I don’t know, I just think that it’s such a private thing.
“I kind of question if there are some things that you shouldn’t have to share on social media.

We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. 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. . . We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack. So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever. . . To our Jack – I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you. . . Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you. . . We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.
“I don’t know where we’re going with all of this.”
Her co-star Jane Moore asked: “Do you think it’s the timing?
“Because it’s very soon after it happened and I suppose that for me is the most ‘oh’ thing of it.
“I look and I think, she’s going through the most painful of experiences.
“I’m thinking, is she in the right head space of that moment to make that decision to put it out there?”
What did Loose Women viewers say?
Some viewers weren’t happy with Carol’s comments.
One person said on Twitter: “If it doesn’t make you feel comfortable Carol, just don’t look at them.
“I applaud Chrissy and John for being so open and honest over something that’s still so taboo.”
