On Friday, the 35-year-old cookbook author, model and entrepreneur posted the photo of herself lying in what appeared to be a hospital room, covered by a surgical gown. "When you have a really important meeting with really important people but you also feel like some organs need removal," she captioned the image, which showed the faces of virtual call attendees. Although followers started guessing why Teigen was hospitalized — listing gall bladder surgery, a hysterectomy or a procedure related to endometriosis — the model was mum.
A few days ago, Teigen shared that she recently needed medical attention in a birthday caption to friend and hairstylist Jen Atkin. "Photo dump. Sorry for the delay I was in the emergency room, I hope that’s ok," she wrote on Instagram.
A representative of Teigen did not immediately respond to Yahoo Entertainment's request for comment.
Last month, while posting photos from a Valentine's Day spent with husband John Legend, Teigen included images of her abdomen with scars, the aftermath of surgery related to the condition endometriosis, when tissue lining the uterus grows on other organs such as the ovaries. "Bitch has been through it," she wrote.
And she's frequently posted about her painful past year. Teigen and Legend, who share daughter Luna, 4, and son Miles, 2, experienced a traumatic loss in September: Their baby son Jack, who died due to pregnancy complications. The next month, Teigen addressed her family's heartache in a beautiful essay published on Medium and has periodically expressed the "brutal, exhausting, sad" and "physically challenging" emotions since Jack's death. "But I refuse to not find humor in both the rage-fits and the outfits," she wrote in a November Instagram post. "I already see the leaves as orange instead of grey, realized the sky is indeed blue and not black and horn honks on my forced morning walks only bring me to my knees half the time."
The Lip Sync Battle host also posted pregnancy photos on what would have been Jack's February due date. "My little jack would have been born this week so I'm a bit off," she tweeted. "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."
