Two weeks after suffering the devastating loss of her third child halfway through her pregnancy, Chrissy Teigen has returned to social media.

The model and author shared a post from her husband, John Legend, with the message, "We are quiet but we are okay. Love you all so much."


The couple originally shared news of the loss of their son, Jack, on September 30th.

"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about," Teigen wrote, along with sharing a series of emotional black-and-images from the hospital.

Earlier that month, Teigen had been hospitalized because of bleeding issues and put on bed rest.

Since the loss of Jack, Teigen has kept quiet on social media.

Legend recently dedicated his 2020 Billboard Music Awards performance of "Never Break" to Chrissy and later, honored her with a sweet post—the same one that Teigen shared.

John wrote, "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," he continued. "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," he said. "We will never break."

We're sending all our love to John and Chrissy.

    You will always be their safe space, mama

    You are their haven. Their harbor. Their sanctuary, their peace. You are comfort. Deep breaths. Hugs and back rubs. You're a resting place, a nightmare chaser, a healer. You are the calm within their storm. You are their mother.

    To your child, you are safety. You are security. You are where (out of anyone or any place), they can come undone. Where they can let it all out, let it all go. Where they meltdown, break down, scream, cry, push.

    Where they can say—"I AM NOT OKAY!"

    Where they can totally lose it. Without judgment or fear or shame.

    Because they know you'll listen. They know you'll hear them. That you will help piece the mess back together.

    Mentally strong kids have parents who refuse to do these 13 things

    9. Feeling responsible for their kids' emotions.

    Raising a mentally strong kid doesn't mean he won't cry when he's sad or that he won't fail sometimes. Mental strength won't make your child immune to hardship—but it also won't cause him to suppress his emotions.

    In fact, it's quite the opposite. Mental strength is what helps kids bounce back from setbacks. It gives them the strength to keep going, even when they're plagued with self-doubt. A strong mental muscle is the key to helping kids reach their greatest potential in life.

    But raising a mentally strong kid requires parents to avoid the common yet unhealthy parenting practices that rob kids of mental strength. In my book, 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don't Do, I identify 13 things to avoid if you want to raise a mentally strong kid equipped to tackle life's toughest challenges:
