They’re a present in our lives in so many different ways that it’s hard to cover that fact because it’s real.”

“Many women — a lot of families — go through this,” the 12 times Grammy Award winner continued. “And I think Chrissy does a good job of demystifying and destigmatizing many things that people, I think, might’ve been ashamed to share before.” Legend was later quoted saying that losing their child Jack at 20 weeks old was “difficult” to share with the general public. Yet, it was significant to those who had to deal with similar situations.
