Earlier this week, Teigen and Legend spoke about coping with loss (opens in new tab) during an appearance on Good Morning America. "I definitely give myself permission to feel complete and utter grief," Teigen said. "Every day is so different. So when people ask me how I'm doing I always say I'm OK—today."

"It's so painful to go through something like this as a woman—something that was inside your body that you were nurturing and taking care of. Obviously there's a father involved, and the support for the both of us has just been so beautiful, so incredible," she continued.

"I didn't know that we could experience this grief and also share it, but when we did it really meant so much to so many people," Legend said. "And it was such a powerful experience for me to learn that. I'm just grateful that my wife was courageous enough to do it."
