John Legend left viewers speechless after performing an emotional rendition of his song, 'Never Break,' at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards. Before he began his performance, he dedicated the song to wife Chrissy Teigen, saying, 'This is for Chrissy.' Earlier this month John and Chrissy suffered the loss of their third child, a baby named Jack. This happened at somewhere between the 20-24th week of pregnancy mark. Chrissy later announced the devastating news on Instagram.
Chrissy suffered the loss of her baby after being admitted to the hospital for severe bleeding. In a post on Instagram, she wrote, '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.'

She explained that she and John had been calling their baby 'Jack,' and said, '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.'
Chrissy went on to thank everyone who has been sending thoughts, prayers, and positive energy, saying, '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.'
Sending John and Chrissy love, always.
