Chrissy Teigen candidly told fans she has been ‘thinking about baby Jack a lot’, after she received her son’s ashes.
The model, 34, and her husband John Legend, 41, lost their third baby – a boy they named Jack – at the beginning of October, after Chrissy suffered complications with her pregnancy.
She had been hospitalised after experiencing excessive bleeding and was given blood transfusions by doctors after being diagnosed with partial placenta abruption.
Chrissy kept fans updated throughout her hospital stay and shared on social media that she and John had heartbreakingly lost their son.
Revealing that she has been thinking about her baby boy a lot lately, Chrissy told fans she is missing Jack, as she shared a cute video of her daughter Luna, four, sweetly talking to her brother’s ashes.
Chrissy explained that the family had been sent Jack’s ashes in a white box that had blessed, holy Thai string wrapped around it. She revealed that Luna had put her therapy bear next to the box and sweetly left her favourite snack for Jack on top of it.
‘The best part is, I came down and [Luna] gave him a piece of her favourite snack,’ Chrissy is heard saying in the clip. ‘I can’t… she’s amazing.’
In another video Chrissy shared, Luna can be seen talking to her brother’ ashes. She says: ‘Hi guys, hi, I’m Luna, how are you doing today?’
Chrissy, who is also mum to son Miles, two, captioned her post: ‘[I’m] just thinking a lot about jack today. our house is very open about life, death, grief, everything really. we try to explain things well and answer every question imaginable in a beautiful, spiritual but literal way.’
‘I know this is a weird post but I just wanted to share these to always remember my incredibly empathetic little mini. life is infinitely better with her in it. I miss u, jack. we miss you a lot (sic),’ she wrote.
Chrissy and John have both had Jack’s name tattooed onto their wrists to honour him, following their baby boy’s death.
Sports Illustrated star Chrissy had also been left ‘overwhelmed’ as she revealed her friends had chosen to pay tribute to Jack by donating seven pints of blood in his name – the same amount Chrissy was given before suffering her miscarriage.
She had penned an emotional open letter following Jack’s death, detailing her grief and explaining why she had chosen to share photos of the moment she lost her baby.
Chrissy wrote: ‘I had asked my mom and John to take pictures, no matter how uncomfortable it was. I explained to a very hesitant John that I needed them, and that I did NOT want to have to ever ask. That he just had to do it. He hated it. I could tell.
‘It didn’t make sense to him at the time. But I knew I needed to know of this moment forever, the same way I needed to remember us kissing at the end of the aisle, the same way I needed to remember our tears of joy after Luna and Miles. And I absolutely knew I needed to share this story.’
She said: ‘These photos aren’t for anyone but the people who have lived this or are curious enough to wonder what something like this is like. These photos are only for the people who need them. The thoughts of others do not matter to me.’
Chrissy signed off: ‘Jack will always be loved, explained to our kids as existing in the wind and trees and the butterflies they see.’
