Chrissy Teigen has shared a heartfelt Instagram post showing how she and her daughter Luna are honouring her late baby son Jack.
On September 30, Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend shared the devastating news that they'd lost their baby boy Jack at around 20 weeks of pregnancy.
Chrissy shared a series of black and white photos taken with Jack in the hospital, writing in a heartbreaking caption, "We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before."
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.

In her most recent post, Chrissy has showed how she and her family are honouring Jack, sharing a video of the small box containing Jack's ashes, which has been placed lovingly next to a therapy teddy bear.
In the video, Chrissy shows how the box has been tied with some blessed holy Thai string. She also adds that her daughter Luna, age 4, has adorably given Jack some of her favourite snack, leaving a piece of Pirate's Booty on top of his box.
In the second video, Chrissy shared a clip of Luna playing with the teddy, saying, "Hi guys. Hi, this is baby Jack, and I'm Teddy. I'm Luna. How are you doing today?"

It's lovely to see how Chrissy and her family are honouring Jack's memory. Our continued thoughts are with Chrissy, John and their family during this sad time.
