Chrissy Teigen reveals she got a tattoo in honour of the son she lost

A touching tribute.

Exactly one month ago Chrissy Teigen revealed that she and her husband John Legend had lost their third child.

The loss came half way through her pregnancy on her third child, her son Jack.

Chrissy, who is known for being very open and honest about her parenting experiences has shared much of her grief online and recently posted a picture showing a tattoo in memory of her late son.

Chrissy posted the photo to Twitter and she and John holding hands.

In the photo you can see the name Jack tattooed across her wrist.

"We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital.

But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack. So he will always be Jack to us."

According to the Miscarriage Association of Ireland more than one in five pregnancies ends in miscarriage with around 14,000 women in Ireland each year experiencing a miscarriage.

Like Chrissy some of these miscarriages come late into pregnancy (officially described as stillbirth after 24 weeks).

While many carry their grief from pregnancy loss silently, with more mothers in the public eye bringing light to how common it is hopefully more mothers will realise that they are not alone and feel more comfortable speaking about their loss.

If you or anyone you know has experienced a miscarriage and would like to seek support you can find out more information on the Miscarriage Association of Ireland website.
