John Legend and Chrissy Teigen talk 'emptiness' and grief after losing baby

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have given their first interview since losing their third child, with the singer describing the ’emptiness’ he felt as they grieved for their son.

The All Of Me hit-maker, 41, and wife Chrissy, 34, appeared on Good Morning America on Tuesday for their first live interview since losing their baby boy.

Chrissy had suffered complications during her pregnancy and the couple lost their son at 20-weeks, with Chrissy and John publicly sharing their heartbreak on social media.

They had posted photos of them in hospital saying goodbye to little Jack, with Chrissy later explaining her decision to take pictures and post them publicly – insisting they were to raise awareness for those in a similar situation who are ‘hurting’.

She had said she ‘didn’t care’ if they caused offence, as they were pictures for her to have to remind her of her son.

Appearing on US television, John said he was ‘worried’ about taking the pictures, but is glad he now has them to carry on Jack’s memory.

Their appearance on GMA comes after Chrissy took to Instagram revealing she had gone through the ‘hardest four days of her life’.

She promised to eventually share her story with fans, but insisted that all she wanted in that moment was a cuddle from her mum. Chrissy wrote: ‘One day I will tell you the recent story of the hardest 4 days of my life. for now, here’s me needing my mommy.’
