John Legend honors wife Chrissy Teigen: 'We will never break’

John Legend shared an emotional Instagram post dedicated to Chrissy Teigen

“This is for Chrissy. I love and cherish you and our family so much.”

John Legend dedicated his performance of the song “Never Break” at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards to his wife Chrissy Teigen and penned an emotional post on Instagram.

Just a few weeks ago, Teigen and Legend suffered the tragic loss of their newborn baby following complications with her pregnancy. "We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before," Teigen said at the time.

On Thursday evening, John posted the video of his BBMAs performance that he dedicated to Chrissy and also thanked fans for their prayers and good wishes.

“We’ve experienced the highest highs and lowest lows together,” he wrote in the post. “Watching you carry our children has been so moving and humbling. I’m in awe of the strength you’ve shown through the most challenging moments. What an awesome gift it is to be able to bring life into the world. We’ve experienced the miracle, the power and joy of this gift, and now we’ve deeply felt its inherent fragility.”

The decision to perform “Never Break” was a deliberate choice for John. “I wrote this song because I have faith that as long as we walk this earth, we will hold each other’s hands through every tear, through every up and down, through every test,” he said.

“We promised each other this on our wedding day seven years ago, and every challenge we’ve faced has made that promise more powerful, more resilient. Our love will remain. We will never break.”

Legend said the couple “feel and appreciate your love and support more than you know” and have been hearing stories from families that have experienced similar pain.

“It’s a club no one wants to be a part of, but it’s comforting to know we’re not alone,” he said.
