Chrissy Teigen unveil ‘tree of life’ tribute to stillborn son Jack at new home

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have shared a glimpse of their new home which included a tribute to their stillborn son, Jack.

The 35-year-old model fell pregnant with their third child last year but experienced complications and had to be hospitalised due to the excessive bleeding.

She later shared on social media that the couple had lost their baby 20 weeks into her pregnancy.

And now, they’ve showed fans their new mansion in Beverly Hills and the tree planted in the middle of it to honour their lost baby.

While Chrissy was cooking up a storm for her Cravings Instagram page, John took over the camera to give everyone a mini-tour of the house.

“We have a tree in the middle of our house,” John said as Chrissy sat down to point at it. “We dedicated this to baby Jack and it’s really beautiful.

“We were inspired by our friend Kelly Wearstler’s house — she has a tree in the middle of it — and we thought it would be cool to have one here.”

John also filmed their two-year-old son Miles watching TV on a gorgeous white sofa as John explained how they bought their TV cabinet from Thailand – where Chrissy’s mum Pepper is from.

Surrounding the tree is a custom-etched frame emblazoned with birds and flower imagery.

Chrissy recently explained the significance of the tree to People, discussing how important it is in the Thai tradition to “always embrace the ones we’ve lost.”

“It’s important for us in Thai tradition that we always embrace the ones we’ve lost, and they’re never, ever gone,” she said.

“This tree being planted inside the home, the whole reason why I wanted it was so Jack’s ashes could be in that soil and he could be with us all the time and grow through the beautiful leaves in this tree.”

She added: “The way Miles and Luna talk about him is so beautiful and reminds me of when I was little talking to my grandpa who was just sitting bedside next to my mom in a little urn.”
