Chrissy Teigen will forever have her late son Jack in her heart, and now has his name on her wrist as a permanent reminder.
Chrissy Teigen revealed the new tattoo on her wrist honouring her baby son Jack, who died during complications just over halfway through pregnancy.
In elegant writing his name ‘Jack’ is tattooed into her skin.
Chrissy shared the photo on Twitter while out for dinner with husband John.
The inking tribute comes a week after the model opened up about their devastating loss in an Instagram post, revealing they lost their baby son after Chrissy had serious bleeding at the 20-week mark in her pregnancy.
Alongside a detailed blog post of their traumatic experience, Chrissy wrote: “I didn’t know how to come back to real life so I wrote this piece for Medium with hopes that I can somehow move on but as soon as I posted it, tears flew out because it felt so....final. I don’t want to ever not remember jack.”
Since then, Chrissy has made a gradual return to social media and on Monday morning she publicly thanked one of her closest friends for donating blood in honour of baby Jack.

Ok, I tried writing this 4 times but the tears were too much. Here we go again, with my heart full of warmth and happiness. My friend @kimmiekyees sent me this with the caption “Me and 6 of my friends donated blood to replace the 7 pints you were given in the hospital, in honor of baby Jack. I love you friend 💛” . . Phewwwww the tears. I’m overwhelmed by our circle of friends. The love I feel for each and every person in our circle actually makes me ache. @kimmiekyees, I’ve known you for so many years now. You know every story, you hear every life gripe, you’re amazing at what you do but the way you treat my kids and family is cherished always. To do something like this for baby jack is just...I dunno. Beautiful. . . @kimmiekyees was told by the volunteers that donations were severely down because high schoolers are responsible for so much of the blood donated. Usually they’d get a coupon for an ice cream cone or a movie ticket, but without school in session, donations are down. I have a lot of friends who normally would donate from a special day at work, but alas, no work. . . Kimmie, I love you. I love this. I am so proud of the people I surround myself and my family with. 💨🍃🦋
She wrote alongside a video montage of her friend and six others giving blood: “Ok, I tried writing this 4 times but the tears were too much. Here we go again, with my heart full of warmth and happiness. My friend @kimmiekyees sent me this with the caption 'Me and 6 of my friends donated blood to replace the 7 pints you were given in the hospital, in honor of baby Jack. I love you friend'."
Chrissy said she was “overwhelmed” by the gesture, writing on Instagram: “To do something like this for baby jack is just...I dunno. Beautiful.”
