Chrissy Teigen has revealed the sweet, touching tribute her daughter Luna made after bringing her late son Jack’s ashes home.

In September, the TV presenter confirmed that she and her husband John Legend's third child had died pre-term in hospital. The couple detailed their experience with personal photos taken from the hospital before Teigen took a break from social media.

In recent weeks, the star has penned an essay about grief and returned to posting on social media, making her first public appearance with Legend on stage in Philadelphia during a Biden-Harris campaign rally last week.

On Monday November 9, Teigen shared an Instagram video of the stuffed bear her four-year-old daughter Luna placed next to Jack’s ashes shortly after they were returned to the family home, describing her as her ‘empathetic little mini’.

‘I’m just thinking a lot about jack today. our house is very open about life, death, grief, everything really,' she captioned the clip.

'We try to explain things well and answer every question imaginable in a beautiful, spiritual but literal way. I know this is a weird post but I just wanted to share these to always remember my incredibly empathetic little mini. life is infinitely better with her in it. I miss u, jack. we miss you a lot. [sic]'

The proud mum also shared a video of her daughter placing the toy and a snack alongside her late brother’s ashes.

'This is the cutest, most beautiful thing I've ever seen,’ Teigen noted.

'We just got baby jacks ashes back for there here for now with some blessed holy Thai string and Luna put a little therapy bear around him.

'The best part is I came down and she gave him a piece of her favourite snack - a tiny piece of Pirate's Booty. I can't... I don't know, she's amazing. [sic]'

In the clip, Luna is heard saying: 'Hi guys. Hi, this is Baby Jack and I'm Teddy.

‘I'm Luna, how you doing today? Look, he's making his tag as a little wall for him.'

In an essay published on Medium last month, the former ELLE UK cover star opened up about the loss of Jack and how she was diagnosed with partial placenta abruption and lost a lot of blood before her late son's passing.

'It was time to say goodbye. He just wouldn't survive this and if it went on any longer I might not either,' Teigen wrote.

'I cried a little at first, then went into full blown convulsions of snot and tears, my breath not able to catch up with my own incredibly deep sadness. Even as I write this now, I can feel the pain all over again. Oxygen was placed over my nose and mouth, and that was the first picture you saw. Utter and complete sadness.'

Since President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris were projected to have won the 2020 presidential election last week, Teigen and Legend have been keen to show their support for the politicians and joy for the US.
