Chrissy Teigen has made a short but emotional return to social media, sharing her husband John Legend’s tweets about how their family is doing alongside the caption,
“We are quiet but we are okay. Love you all so much.”
The usually outspoken has taken time to herself following the devastating loss of their third child. Instead, 41-year old Legend has reached out to the world in her stead, sharing a sweet tribute to his wife of seven years now. In a series of tweets, Legend tweeted:
“I’m in awe of the strength you’ve shown through the most challenging moments. What an awesome gift it is to be able to bring life into the world. We’ve experienced the miracle, the power and joy of this gift, and now we’ve deeply felt its inherent fragility.”
The ‘All of Me’ singer reiterated the promise that the couple made to each other on their wedding day, sharing that they’d “never break” as their love would remain despite all the ups and downs they have been faced with. He also took the opportunity to thank everyone who has sent them love and support.
I’m sure Chrissy will have much more to say about this when she’s ready. But just know we’re grateful and we’re sending love to all of you and your families.

After days in the hospital bleeding and fearing the worst, Teigen and Legend, revealed on October 1 that she had suffered a miscarriage. This was Chrissy’s third pregnancy, a welcome surprise after believing that she couldn’t get pregnant naturally. Both of the children that Teigen and Legend share, Luna and Miles, were conceived through IVF treatments. The couple announced they were expecting a third child in Legend’s music video for the song “Wild” but multiple complications (through no fault of her own) throughout her pregnancy ultimately led to the loss of the little boy they had lovingly named Jack.

We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough. . . We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack. So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever. . . 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. . . Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you. . . We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.
Following their loss, Teigen took a break from social media while Legend went on to perform a hauntingly beautiful new song titled ‘Never Break’ that he’d written for Teigen at the recent Billboard Music Awards 2020 that took place in Los Angeles. In the powerful performance dedicated to his wife, he sang:
We will never break
As the water rises
And the mountains shake
Our love will remain
Our hearts to out to Teigen, Legend and everyone else who is going through loss.
