Chrissy Teigen was admitted to the hospital on Sunday after suffering from heavy bleeding with her third pregnancy. While there, her husband John Legend decided to offer his wife some comfort by making her a sandwich topped with Lay’s potato chips.
Chrissy revealed to her fans via Instagram Stories, which can be viewed here, and Twitter that she had been admitted to the hospital because of her high-risk pregnancy. John whipped up a meal for his wife — who is famous for her comfort food recipes from her cookbooks Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat and Cravings: Hungry for More — by the side of her hospital bed.
In a clip of the stories posted to Twitter, John was hard at work in front of an impressive sandwich assembly table filled with mayonnaise, mustard, lettuce, bread, and Lay’s potato chips, which he carefully placed on the dressed bread. The singer wore a gold watch and black “Love” hoodie
Chrissy joked that John was sure the miniature refrigerator in her hospital room was a minibar like those found in hotel rooms.
In a second video, he continued to dress the sandwich while they joked with a person off-camera about making jello-shots out of the alcohol in the hospital minibar.

He filled the sandwich with pre-heated ham, which is safe for pregnant women, and added cheese in between the slices of meat. He topped it with lettuce and handed it over to his wife to nibble on.
Prior to the sandwich tutorial, Chrissy gave fans a little bit more information about what was going on. She said that while she is halfway through her pregnancy, she has been bleeding an excessive amount for the past month. As a result, doctors have ordered her to lie down as much as possible and not move around unless absolutely necessary.
“We all know I’ve been on bed rest for a few weeks and that’s like super serious bed rest,” she said. “I get up to quickly pee and that’s it, I take baths twice a week, no showering, just as little as possible.”
“But I was always, always bleeding,” she added. “We’re talking like more than your period, girls, it’s definitely not spotting. A lot of people spot but it’s usually fine. Mine was a lot.”
She went on to assure her fans that their baby boy was still growing strong, but said that she felt like a house with a bad foundation for her little one to grow in.
She said that right now her doctors and nurses were working hard to get him through the next few weeks and asked people not to try to give her medical advice or make their own diagnosis because it only added to her stress. Chrissy previously revealed that she was having a difficult pregnancy and had been forced to indefinitely postpone her next cookbook and online series.
In the final clip of her story, she hinted that she might need a blood transfusion by showing a pamphlet she had been given by doctors about the process.
