“They told us they felt alone a lot of times, and us sharing our experience helped people feel less alone and feel like there were other people going through it and there was a community of people going through it,” John Legend said of the positive response he and Chrissy received after being transparent with their journey. “It’s hard to try to comfort anyone that’s going through it because there’s no real comfort,” the recording artist shared.

“You’re always going to feel that loss,” John added. “It kind of spreads over time, so it doesn’t feel as heavy over time, but you’ll never forget it.”

The celebrity couple included their older children, Miles and Luna, in the ceremony. John’s forthcoming album also addresses the pain he and Chrissy endured after losing their youngest son.

“Some of the songs are about coping with loss and grief and when you feel broken,” the recording artist shared with Desert Island Discs. “Those experiences I was able to channel into the music.”
