Chrissy Teigen and John Legend open up about their 'complete and utter grief' in 1st interview since pregnancy loss
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend gave their first interview together since they lost their pregnancy.
Less than two months after Lip Sync Battle's 34-year-old host and cookbook author lost her 20-week pregnancy - a young boy she and 41-year-old singer were supposed to name Jack - they opened up about theirs on Good Morning America “Total and total sadness” and how it made them stronger as a couple. They also talked about criticism they faced after sharing photos documenting their pain.
"I am definitely giving myself permission to have complete and utter grief," said Teigen. "Every day is so different. When people ask me how I am, I always say that I am fine - today."
Legend praised his wife for being "brave enough" to share her loss with the world - as she ran through it in the hospital and in the private photos they shared after showing them saying goodbye to Jack .
Teigen said she had "thousands of letters" sent to her after the loss. "Obviously it's so painful to go through something like this as a woman - something that was in your body, that you care for and that you care for. But obviously a father is involved and the support for both of us was just so nice, like that incredible. "
Regarding the photos that she addressed in an essay: "I don't care if you were offended or disgusted. I understand that it can be so for people. It was developed for people who were hurt."
Legend admitted he was hesitant about taking the pictures and said he did not want to "remember" the pain. However, the "thing about a miscarriage is you go away with nothing." You have this void and we wanted to take the photos to have something to remember. "
And the "outpouring of love" they received drowned out, Legend said, any negativity.
"The world is naturally good," said Teigen. "As hard as it was, it's nice to see this side of it."
Legend has it that he loves Teigen - with whom he shares Luna (4) and Miles (2) - more than ever. We have gone through so many challenges together and they have made us stronger, and I know that doesn't always happen when people go through tragedy. But I have the feeling that the challenges we face together make us feel even more secure about who we are as a couple and who we are as a family ... We are stronger together than ever. "
The couple also spoke about partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities to give back to other families with critically ill or injured children.
At the weekend, Teigen did not reveal what was behind her post because she had just had the "hardest 4 days of my life" (see below). However, it was a tough few months - first with pregnancy complications, then with the loss of the pregnancy, grief for the baby with its two children and receipt of the baby's ashes, which doughs according to their own statements "into the ground of a tree in our new home" wants to put that we bought with a view of his room.
