Chrissy Teigen has shared a devastating image and tribute one year on from the death of her son, Jack.
She wrote: "To the son we almost had. A year ago you gave me the greatest pain I could ever imagine to show me I could survive anything, even if I didn’t want to.
"I didn’t get to take care of you but you came and went to get me to love myself and take care of myself because our bodies are precious and life is a miracle.
"They told me it would get easier but yeah, that hasn’t started yet. Mom and dad love you forever."
In the image she posted, Chrissy could be seen crying in a hospital bed as John, 42, consoled her. Chrissy and John lost their son on September 30th last year, after being admitted to the hospital with severe bleeding.
At the time, Chrissy said: "We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we've never felt before.
"We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn't enough."
Chrissy and John welcomed daughter Luna, five, and son Miles, three, through IVF.
The All Of Me singer and his wife have been incredibly open about their journey after their loss, receiving praise from her followers and charities for opening up about her experiences.
In April last year, Chrissy spoke to People magazine about not being able to carry another child: "Coming to terms with not being able to carry again is still really difficult for me because I feel so healthy. I'm like, why?"
"But then I think about it as my uterus is just not cooperating with me - and it's not a failure."
The TV personality and former model also explained why she decided to share photos of the family going through the loss of Jack to her then 34 million Instagram followers.
"I knew I needed to know of this moment forever," she said in a blog post at the time.
"And I absolutely knew I needed to share this story."
