Chrissy Teigen made origami for her baby Jack with her daughter Luna as the family holidayed in St Barts.
It has been a tough year for Chrissy and her husband John Legend, after they lost their son Jack in late September following complications in her third pregnancy.
While sailing around St Barts on a yacht, Chrissy, 35, remembered her son with four-year-old Luna, as they made origami together.
The Lip Sync Battle star posted a sweet picture of Luna cuddling up to her as they made a flower from paper.
Chrissy had her eyes closed in the picture, showing off the glitter and jewels she had applied.
She captioned the picture: ‘origami for our jack!’
Fans and friends shared their love and support in the comments section, with Selling Sunset’s Christine Quinn writing: ‘Chrissy, Jack will be always remembered, loved, and in our hearts forever. Stay strong. You are the most wonderful soul and an amazing mother.’
Model Brooklyn Decker added: ‘Sending the biggest squeeze I can muster.’
Chrissy and John, who are also parents to two-year-old Miles, conceived Jack naturally after welcoming their two other kids via IVF.
However, Chrissy suffered complications through her pregnancy, including bleeding and a weak placenta, and on October 1, she confirmed the sad news that she had lost her baby.
The model wrote on Instagram: ‘We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough.
‘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. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever.
‘To our Jack – I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you.’
The post was accompanied by devastating pictures of Chrissy in the hospital.
The photos were praised by many, who said that Chrissy was helping reduce the stigma around pregnancy loss and grief.
Since then, she has got a tattoo in tribute of her son, and announced this week that she has quit drinking.
In an Instagram post, Chrissy revealed she is four weeks sober, and told followers that the book How To Quit Like A Woman by Holly Whitaker helped her do it.
She wrote: ‘One month ago, on my birthday, I got this book from my doctor and friend. I was done with making an a** of myself in front of people (I’m still embarrassed), tired of day drinking and feeling like s*** by 6, not being able to sleep.
‘I have been sober ever since and even if you can’t see yourself doing it or just plain don’t want to, it is still an incredible read.’
