Chrissy Teigen has defended Meghan Markle in the wake of the Duchess of Sussex's personal essay for The New York Times about her recent miscarriage.

Chrissy, who recently suffered her own heartbreaking loss of her son Jack at 20 weeks into her pregnancy, took to Twitter to slam a Twitter troll who claimed Meghan was selfish for sharing the essay.

Marco Giannangeli, Defence and Diplomatic Editor for the Sunday Express, responded to a tweet that read, "Meghan Markle won't see the all of the nasty s**t you write about her but your friends who have experienced miscarriages and the loss of a baby will."

"Is anyone really questioning the pain and sheer awfulness of suffering a miscarriage, or are they perhaps criticising Meghan’s decision to write a 1,000 word op-Ed about herself?" Marco wrote. "What does it add to the resources already available for those who go through a tragedy like this?"

Chrissy shared the tweet and slammed the writer.

"Award for today's absolute piece of s**t goes to Marco Giannangeli," she wrote. "Congratulations, piece of s**t."

She quickly deleted the comment, however, writing, "Sorry forgot I'm trying to be nicer lol."

Similarly, she and husband John Legend also dealt with Internet trolls after sharing their own miscarriage story.

The pair appeared in their first joint interview since announcing the news this week.

"I definitely give myself permission to have complete and utter grief," Chrissy said during the appearance on Good Morning America. "Every day is so different. So when people ask me how I'm doing, I always say, 'I'm OK today.'"

According to E! News, Meghan decided to write the essay about her July miscarriage to allow for healing. Her husband Prince Harry also supported the decision.

Meghan described the tragic moment when she knew she was losing her second child.

"After changing [Archie’s] 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," she recalled.

"I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second. Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand.

"I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears. Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal," she wrote.

"We have learned that when people ask how any of us are doing, and when they really listen to the answer, with an open heart and mind, the load of grief often becomes lighter—for all of us," Meghan wrote. "In being invited to share our pain, together we take the first steps toward healing."
