Chrissy Teigen Reveals the Tattoo She Recently Got to Honor the Baby She Lost
Teigen shared the loss publicly on Instagram including photos that showed her crying in the hospital. She later said that since she was public about the pregnancy she felt that she needed to be public about the pregnancy loss as well.
In October, Legend performed a song at the Billboard Music Awards that he dedicated to Teigen. The song was titled “Never Break,” and including powerful lyrics like, “Whenever life is hard/ We’ll never lose our way” and “Built on a foundation/ Stronger than the pain.”
The lyrics seem to speak to the strength of their marriage and their family. They imply that even though they are grieving they will survive. Singing this song at the awards show was probably an important way for Legend to process his own grief.
Now, Teigen has revealed another sweet way she is coping with the loss of her son. She posted a photo on Twitter where she appears to be holding hands with Legend. What’s notable is what’s written on her arm.
There is a tattoo on Teigen’s arm that has been there awhile. It spells out the names of her husband and daughter, 4 year old Luna, and her son, 2 year old Miles. It also showed off a new tattoo that’s not connected to the others.
Just below Teigen’s wrist is a tattoo that reads “Jack,” the name of the son who didn’t survive but will never be forgotten.

Beautiful! I decided to get a heart as part of my pregnancy loss healing – a reminder to “love myself.” Lost our first at only 10 weeks pregnant in September. Thank you for sharing your miscarriage journey – you are not alone! Much love to you and your family. 💜 pic.twitter.com/ctlXbMShwu

@chrissyteigen I love it! What a perfect way to honor your sweet Jack. A few years ago I asked parents of Angel babies to send me pics of their tattoos. I made a short clip as a tribute. I hope you’ll watch. You are never alone. pic.twitter.com/ORR9ZAijg7

Do you have any tattoos? Would you ever consider getting a tattoo to honor a lost loved one?
