Chrissy Teigen has shared an image of her new tattoo in honour of the baby she lost as she continues to grieve the death of her son.

The star posted a series of photos on social media during a date night with her husband John Legend, sharing one poignant image that showed the word "Jack" inked onto the inside of her right wrist.

It appears alongside the name "John" on her arm in honour of her husband. She already has tattoos for the couple's children, Luna, four, and Miles, two.

Teigen became pregnant for the third time earlier this year but tragically lost the child, explaining in a moving statement on Instagram that it had occurred "about halfway through her pregnancy" alongside a series of powerful pictures of she and Legend cradling their late son. She revealed that the couple had planned to name him Jack.

She explained: "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..."

A few weeks later, John Legend dedicated his performance of Never Break to his wife during the 2020 Billboard Music Awards in LA. His voice came close to cracking as he sang the potent lyrics: "I'm not worried about us and I've never been. We know how the story ends. We will never break."
