Following the heartbreaking loss of their son Jack in September, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have been open about their experience and how they've been navigating this difficult time as a family. In an interview with ET on Nov. 11, John also opened up about the overwhelming "love and support" he and Chrissy have received over the last several weeks.

"We've heard from so many people who have gone through it too and it's been encourageing to be getting so much love and support from so many people who have experienced similar things," he said. "Chrissy sharing what she shared has also been helpful for other people who are going through it and may go through it in the future. So thank you."

"We hold onto the fact that we have two beautiful kids that we love and are such a beautiful reflection of who we are and what we value."

Since the loss of their son Jack, Chrissy and John's friends and family have shown their support for the couple in numerous ways. In honour of her late son, Chrissy also got a heartwarming tattoo to remember how difficult it was to lose Jack at 20 weeks. "People say an experience like this creates a hole in your heart," she captioned the Instagram post sharing the news. "A hole was certainly made, but it was filled with the love of something I loved so much. It doesn't feel empty, this space. It feels full."

During this difficult time, John and Chrissy have remained optimistic and done their best to push forward. When asked how he and Chrissy find the strength to do so, John said, "Well, I think we have to . . . Whenever we go through personal challenges — and I think challenges as a nation — I think we have to hold on to what makes us optimistic. What makes us hopeful, hold onto the things that bring us joy. And in my family, as we've gone through a tough year, we hold onto the fact that we have two beautiful kids that we love and are such a beautiful reflection of who we are and what we value."
