John Legend dedicated an emotional performance at Wednesday night's Billboard Music Awards to his wife Chrissy Teigen following their recent pregnancy loss.
At the BBMAs, Legend sat at a piano in a white suit and said, "This is for Chrissy" before singing a powerful rendition of his song "Never Break."
Legend and Teigen suffered a pregnancy loss in late September after Teigen was hospitalized due to extreme bleeding. Teigen had initially tweeted on September 29 that she had a "huge clot" and "scrambled to hear the heartbeat of her child."
Sadly, two days later, she posted the tragic news on Instagram on October 1, writing that "bags and bags of blood transfusions" couldn't stop the miscarriage of their unborn son, who they named Jack.
Teigen wrote: "We will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it."

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. . . Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you. . . We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.
Teigen tweeted: "Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real."
However, Legend's moving performance sent a message of strength to both Teigen and the audience. Legend was introduced by host Kelly Clarkson, who said: "My heart, obviously all of our hearts, go out to both in this very difficult time."
"Never Break," from Legend's album "Bigger Love" includes the lyrics: "We will never break. Built on a foundation. Strong enough to stay. We will never break."
