Chrissy Teigen, the model and wife of musician John Legend, has explained in a message to fans her decision to share intimate photos taken after suffering a miscarriage.
Teigen, 34, posted a black-and-white picture to her tens of millions of followers on social media of herself weeping in a hospital gown with her hands clasped in prayer, following the death of the couple’s premature son, Jack, late last month.
Another showed her holding the baby as Legend kisses her shoulder.
“I had asked my mom and John to take pictures, no matter how uncomfortable it was. I explained to a very hesitant John that I needed them, and that I did NOT want to have to ever ask. That he just had to do it. He hated it. I could tell.” she wrote on the website Medium.
“But I knew I needed to know of this moment forever. And I absolutely knew I needed to share this story,” she said.
