On September 29, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend held a memorial ceremony for their son Jack alongside their two children, Luna and Miles, as well as the “Cravings” author’s mother Vilailuck “Pepper” Teigen. The reality star shared a series of photos via Instagram, alongside a touching tribute: “Took me a year but finally honored his little spirit with some blessings today. hopefully some closure in my heart will happen now. thank you guys for the kind words. It’s a process. Xx”
Ahead of Jack’s memorial, Teigen also honored “the son we almost had” on National Sons Day, sharing a heartbreaking image of herself crying in her husband’s arms. “A year ago you gave me the greatest pain I could ever imagine to show me I could survive anything, even if I didn’t want to,” she wrote. “I didn’t get to take care of you but you came and went to get me to love myself and take care of myself because our bodies are precious and life is a miracle.” Teigen ended her message by sharing that the mourning process has not gotten easier for her.
