John Legend shared a heartfelt message to wife Chrissy Teigen amid their pregnancy loss.

After dedicating his emotional Billboard Music Awards performance of “Never Break” to his wife, the singer shared a clip of it on social media along with a thoughtful message praising the Lip Sync Battle host for her strength during the ordeal. After losing the baby they were to name Jack, Teigen bravely shared photos of their heart-wrenching goodbye.

Like his performance, Legend started by saying, “This is for Chrissy,” but went on to share, “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. 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.”

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. 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. We will never break. Thank you to everyone who has been sending us prayers and well wishes, flowers, cards, words of comfort and empathy. We feel and appreciate your love and support more than you know. More than anything, we’ve heard so many stories about how so many other families have experienced this pain, often suffering in silence. It’s a club no one wants to be a part of, but it’s comforting to know we’re not alone. I’m sure Chrissy will have much more to say about this when she’s ready. But just know we’re grateful and we’re sending love to all of you and your families.

Legend, who shares two children with Teigen, his wife since 2013, said he wrote “Never Break,” off his album Bigger Love, “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. We will never break.”

Legend ended the post by thanking “everyone who has been sending us prayers and well wishes, flowers, cards, words of comfort and empathy. We feel and appreciate your love and support more than you know. More than anything, we’ve heard so many stories about how so many other families have experienced this pain, often suffering in silence. It’s a club no one wants to be a part of, but it’s comforting to know we’re not alone.”

He said he and Teigen were “grateful and we’re sending love to all of you and your families.”

Teigen spoke out for the first time since sharing the photos of her goodbye — other than giggling at a social media post — when she reposted part of her husband’s loving message on social media.

“We are quiet but we are okay,” she wrote on Instagram. “Love you all so much.”
