Late last week, Chrissy Teigen spoke out for the first time on her social media, following her devastating announcement of experiencing pregnancy loss.

Teigen shared a tweet from husband John Legend, captioning it, “We are quiet but we are okay. Love you all so much.”

The tweet was shared by Legend following his performance of “Never Break” at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, which he dedicated to Teigen.

“This is for Chrissy. I love and cherish you and our family so much. We’ve experienced the highest highs and lowest lows together. Watching you carry our children has been so moving and humbling,” Legend wrote in the caption of a subsequent Instagram post. “I’m in awe of the strength you’ve shown through the most challenging moments. What an awesome gift it is to be able to bring life into the world. We’ve experienced the miracle, the power and joy of this gift, and now we’ve deeply felt its inherent fragility.”

“I wrote this song because I have faith that as long as we walk this earth, we will hold each other’s hands through every tear, through every up and down, through every test. We promised each other this on our wedding day seven years ago, and every challenge we’ve faced has made that promise more powerful, more resilient. Our love will remain. We will never break.

Thank you to everyone who has been sending us prayers and well wishes, flowers, cards, words of comfort and empathy. We feel and appreciate your love and support more than you know. More than anything, we’ve heard so many stories about how so many other families have experienced this pain, often suffering in silence. It’s a club no one wants to be a part of, but it’s comforting to know we’re not alone. I’m sure Chrissy will have much more to say about this when she’s ready. But just know we’re grateful and we’re sending love to all of you and your families.”

Legend and Teigen, who are also parents to Luna, 4, and Miles, 2, shared the painful news that they had experienced pregnancy loss in the second trimester with their third child on September 30.
