Chrissy Teigen Revealed A New Tattoo Honoring Her Late Son Jack

This week, Chrissy Teigen took a couple big steps toward healing after her tragic miscarriage.

The multi-hyphenate star publicly announced she miscarried her third child with singer John Legend and received support from mothers who also experienced child loss.

In a medium post this week, Teigen emotionally laid out her heart-wrenching experience.

“After a couple nights at the hospital, my doctor told me exactly what I knew was coming — it was time to say goodbye. He just wouldn’t survive this, and if it went on any longer, I might not either. We had tried bags and bags of blood transfusions, every single one going right through me like we hadn’t done anything at all. Late one night, I was told it would be time to let go in the morning. I cried a little at first, then went into full blown convulsions of snot and tears, my breath not able to catch up with my own incredibly deep sadness. Even as I write this now, I can feel the pain all over again. Oxygen was placed over my nose and mouth, and that was the first picture you saw. Utter and complete sadness.”

Teigen also revealed a sweet tribute tattoo for the couple’s son, Jack. 


 

Her son’s name is right above the tattoo she has to honor Legend and their two other children, Luna and Miles. 


Likewise, Legend has a matching one with Teigen’s name alongside Luna and Miles.

As Teigen begins to heal in public, many parents who have been through similar experiences are supporting her — and opening up about their own experiences — through this difficult time.

In the medium post, Teigen explained why it was so important to have photos taken and to share her story.

“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.”

I cannot express how little I care that you hate the photos. How little I care that it’s something you wouldn’t have done. I lived it, I chose to do it, and more than anything, 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.”
