After a follower complimented her new tattoo and said she herself was looking for a way to represent her own stillborn child, Teigen offered to help. “Let’s help you find something you love,” she responded. “Maybe one s shape, a swirl of air around you.”
Teigen and Legend lost son Jack after she suffered pregnancy complications in September, when she was about 20 weeks pregnant. Days ago, on Oct. 27, the cookbook author penned a vulnerable and heartbreaking account of her miscarriage.
“My doctors diagnosed me with partial placenta abruption. I had always had placenta problems. I had to deliver Miles a month early because his stomach wasn’t getting enough food from my placenta. But this was my first abruption,” she explained, saying that her doctors were trying to get her to 28 weeks. After being hospitalized and receiving numerous blood transfusions, doctors gave her the bad news. “He just wouldn’t survive this, and if it went on any longer, I might not either.”
After their devastating loss, Legend dedicated his emotional performance of “Never Break” at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards on Oct. 14 to his wife. Before beginning his performance, he quietly said, “This is for Chrissy.”
