Chrissy Teigen said that Meghan Markle wrote to her after she suffered a stillbirth during her pregnancy last year.

Responding to a fan question during the "Watch What Happens Live!" aftershow, Teigen revealed that Markle reached out to her after the tragic incident.

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

She continued: "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."

Last year in September, Teigen was hospitalized due to extreme bleeding, which was related to a partial placental abruption. On September 30, about halfway into the pregnancy, Teigen announced with a series of intimate photos that the baby, a boy she and husband John Legend had named Jack, had died.

"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.

"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."

Later, in December, Teigen wrote that she would "never" be pregnant again while celebrating the "amazing" children she already has with Legend.

Teigen, who first met Markle on the TV show "Deal or No Deal," has spoken in support of Markle several times over the last few years. Last month, Teigen defended Markle against criticisms around her interview with Oprah Winfrey as well as allegations that Markle bullied palace staff members, claims that Markle's representatives called a "smear campaign."

Teigen tweeted: "This Meghan Markle shit is hitting too close to home for me. These people won't stop until she miscarries. F---ing stop it."

Teigen told "Watch What Happens Live!" host Andy Cohen that she spoke to Markle following the Oprah Winfrey interview, but said that Markle did not dish any "extra tea" to her that wasn't aired in the interview.

"I think she's been very honest [and] open. I think her truth has been her truth since the very beginning."
