A month after her pregnancy loss, Chrissy Teigen paid tribute to son Jack with a touching tattoo. Teigen shared a glimpse of the ink on social media on Oct. 31, while out for dinner with husband John Legend. Teigen added Jack's name to her collection of existing tattoos which also honour Legend and their children, Luna and Miles.
Last week, she wrote a moving Medium essay about how difficult it was to lose Jack at 20 weeks. "People say an experience like this creates a hole in your heart," she explained. "A hole was certainly made, but it was filled with the love of something I loved so much. It doesn't feel empty, this space. It feels full."
The photo of her tattoo inspired other mothers on Twitter to share their own ink, prompted by the loss of a child. One mom came forward and expressed her desire to honour her stillborn baby in a similar way. Chrissy responded with grace and empathy. "Let's help you find something you love," she wrote. "Maybe one s shape, a swirl of air around you."
