    John Legend spoke candidly to Entertainment Tonight about how he and Chrissy Teigen are coping with the devastating loss of their son, Jack, who was stillborn in late September. Asked how they're able to "push forward in such a positive manner" amid their grief as well as the "current state of the world," Legend responded, "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," he said. "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."
