Chrissy Teigen sends love and thanks to those who have sent letters of condolence in honor of her late baby Jack.
The 35-year-old model took to social media to share videos of the piles of letters she and husband John Legend received after Teigen suffered a miscarriage in September. The couple has spoken openly about the plan to name the child Jack.
Fan endorsements, Teigen noted, had been delayed due to the pandemic.
“These are just piles of letters that we just got because the place where we normally get mail from, where you send mail to, has been shut down and reopened. And now we have everything,” she said with tears in her eyes, as she shuffled through piles of envelopes. “You’ve sent the most amazing condolence letters, cards and books and I want you to know we have them all. All of them. I’m going to read them all, okay? I love you.”
The stories come after a remarkable social media hiatus for Teigen, who came under fire for comments she made a decade ago in response to 16-year-old Courtney Stodden marrying Doug Hutchinson, then 51. On July 14, she returned to Instagram to talk about her isolation at the “cancel club.”
“[I] I don’t really know what to say here… it just feels so weird to pretend nothing happened in this online world but feel like an asshole in real life,” she wrote. , when I’m home alone am with my mind, my depressed head is racing But I do know that how I’m handling this now isn’t the right answer I feel lost and need to find my place again, I need to get out of here, I want desperately communicating with you instead of pretending everything is okay. I’m not used to anything else!!”
Previously, Teigen had been open about her grief over the loss of Jack and used social media as an outlet to express the pain she and Legend felt and the ways they worked to get through it. She even shared behind-the-scenes photos of the music video for “Wild,” where the couple announced the pregnancy.
“I knew it would take a while for the video to come together, so I thought it would be fun to share our news with the world at the end via the old classic hand-on-tummy trick,” she wrote in February. as she pondered the joyous moment. “I could never have imagined what would happen in the next 10 weeks… I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to watch that video again without sobbing, but I hope he feels my tears and knows that we’ll be able to see him soon.” to miss.”
Followers are also comforted by Teigen’s openness.
“Thank you so much. Your sharing has created space and a platform for this little corner of my world,” one person responded in February’s post.
