  • Chrissy Teigen revealed Meghan Markle reached out to her after she lost her son, Jack
  • Teigen said the duchess has been "so kind" and "wonderful" since they connected 
  • Markle and Teigen also talked after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's bombshell tell-all with Oprah Winfrey

Meghan Markle has a friend in Chrissy Teigen, who describes the Duchess of Sussex as "wonderful" and "kind."

During her appearance on Tuesday's "Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen," Teigen revealed that Markle — who suffered a miscarriage last summer — reached out to her after she and husband John Legend lost their son Jack in September last year. According to the cookbook author, they had formed a friendship after connecting about their experiences.

"Yeah, she's been so kind to me ever since we connected," Teigen was quoted by People as saying. "She had written me about baby Jack.... but yeah she is really wonderful and so kind — just as kind as everyone says she is."

"That's why you look at everything and you're like 'My god, what is absolutely wrong with people that they have to make this person out to be so malicious or so crazy?' when it's just as simple as them being as kind as everyone says they are," she said of Markle's struggles. "So yeah, she's a really wonderful person."

The "Lip Sync Battle" co-host said she also talked to Markle after her and Prince Harry's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March. Teigen said she waited a long time before watching the tell-all so she had already heard so much about it, but her first reaction to it was, "Holy s--t, this is big."

When host Andy Cohen asked if Markle shared any details she didn't mention during the interview, Teigen said she had nothing to add.

"No. I think she's been very honest [and] open. I think her truth has been her truth since the very beginning," she added.

Teigen and Legend were expecting their third child last year, something the model had been very excited about. However, at 20 weeks pregnant, she was hospitalized due to pregnancy complications, and they lost their son soon after.

"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before," Teigen wrote on Instagram at the time. "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."

In her post, Teigen announced the baby's name and also said he will always be part of their little family.

"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," she wrote.

Meanwhile, Markle opened up about the miscarriage she suffered last summer in a heartbreaking personal essay for The New York Times in November 2020. 

"After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp. I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right," the duchess wrote. "I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second."

Markle and her husband Prince Harry are currently expecting their second child, whom they confirmed is a girl. Due to her pregnancy, the duchess was advised by her doctors against traveling to the U.K. with Prince Harry last week for the funeral of Prince Philip, who passed away on April 9.
