It’s been about a month since the world mourned the devastating loss of Chrissy Teigen’s baby, Jack. After taking a much-needed break from social media, Teigen has returned. Today, she shared an image of her new tattoo, dedicated to her son. On her wrist, Jack’s name can be seen beautifully written in cursive script.
Alongside her tattoo for Jack, is another dedicated to Legend and the couple’s children: Luna and Miles.

hey guys please don’t talk to us unless u have tattoos we are a cool tattoo family now and we only want to talk to other tattoo families (srry if this seems harsh) Thank you thank you @winterstone. You are not only incredibly talented but you are very kind and delightful and welcome over any time!!
Last week, Teigen published an essay where she explained her decision to make her pregnancy-loss grief public in a series of photos cradling their late son on Instagram. Teigen bravely chose to share the details of her complicated pregnancy with Jack, and her experience suffering from “partial placenta abruption.”
Teigen wrote: “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…”
In sharing her tattoo of Jack, Teigen has proved (once again) that her story continues to help countless other families who have shared the pain of a miscarriage or stillbirth. Replying to Chrissy’s original tweet, Twitter user @engineer820 shared that for 13 years she’s been trying to find the best tattoo to honor her own stillborn son.
Let’s help you find something you love. Maybe one s shape, a swirl of air around you.

“Let’s help you find something you love. Maybe one s shape, a swirl of air around you,” responded Teigen.
We’re so grateful, that Teigen selflessly decided to share her story. Remember, many grieve their loss differently, and that’s okay too.
There is no doubt that she will continue to touch families with her powerful words. And we’ll all be here to listen.
These other famous parents have been open about suffering miscarriages.
