Chrissy Teigen made her first public appearance since losing her son Jack on Monday evening, as she attended a presidential rally in Philadelphia.
Throwing her support behind democratic candidate Joe Biden and vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, the model, 34, took to the stage with her husband John Legend, 41, and their two kids, to give an emotionally-charged performance.
Chrissy was back in the public eye following her stillbirth on September 30, having documented her heartbreaking loss in excruciating detail on social media, with pictures and a powerful essay about her pain.
The rally took place on the eve of the US election, and during his performance, John took the opportunity to comment on a particular aspect of this year’s candidates, and certain famous personalities who have received their support.

In her famed style, Chrissy was documenting the evening on social media in forensic detail and shared backstage shots as well as her post-rally feast of a sloppy joe and onion rings, which she devoured after their appearance on-stage.
It was her first public engagement since losing Jack. Chrissy and John, who tied the knot in Italy in September of 2013, conceived Luna and Miles through IVF treatment, while their surprise third pregnancy occurred naturally.
Chrissy announced the loss of her third baby in late September, just weeks after they had revealed in John’s Wild music video that they were expecting again.
John was one of the featured speakers and performers at the Biden rally, in an effort to generate support for the Democratic nominee in Pennsylvania – a swing state.

Rage: The couple, who have openly clashed with Trump in the past, were vocal in their support of Biden
The couple were joined by daughter Luna, four, and son Miles, two, who also got on stage to greet the crowd, which was assembled for a drive-in get out the vote rally.
Her mother Vilailuck Teigen was also at the rally and helped the couple with their kids as they took the stage as a group.
Chrissy herself has also been an outright dissenter when it comes to Trump, and has even gotten into tangles with him on Twitter on multiple occasions.

An honour: It was her first appearance since losing Jack
All hands on deck: She brought their kids along for support
In a now-viral video, John took specific aim at rappers who’ve chosen to endorse Donald Trump, such as Ice Cube and Lil Wayne.
He said: ‘Some people see the meanness, the bullying, the selfishness of Donald Trump and they mistake it for strength, a kind of twisted masculinity…
‘Some people see his greed and they mistake it for being good at business. Some of your, former, favorite rappers have been taken in by these lies. I think they’ve even founded a new super group. It’s called the Sunken Place’.
‘But Trump‘s Platinum Plan for Black folks is nothing but fool’s gold!’
Their appearance comes after John revealed he has gotten a matching tattoo with wife Chrissy in honor of Jack.

Photos of the couple’s inked tributes were uploaded to Instagram on Monday by their tattoo artist Winter Stone.
‘JACK @chrissyteigen @johnlegend My heart is with you, sending you all the love!’ captioned Stone, who tattooed the late child’s name on John and Chrissy’s wrists.
The ink was written in the same font as Chrissy and John’s other tattoos, which pay homage to one another, as well as their two children Luna, four, and Miles, two.
Chrissy, who got the original matching tattoos with her husband, had ‘John Luna Miles’ inked on her arm, while John had ‘Chrissy Luna Miles’ put on his.
Those tattoos were also the work of Winter Stone, who has inked stars ranging from Lady Gaga to Mandy Moore to Sophie Turner.

WHAT IS A STILLBIRTH?
A stillbirth occurs when a baby is born dead after 24 weeks of pregnancy.
If a baby dies before 24 weeks of pregnancy, it is known as a miscarriage.
Not all stillbirths can be prevented, however, not smoking or drinking, as well as not sleeping on your back and attending all antenatal appointments can reduce the risk.
What are the signs?
Signs may include the baby not moving as much as normal.
Pregnant women should contact their doctor immediately if they notice a difference to their baby’s movement.
What are the causes?
Stillbirths do not always have an obvious cause but may occur due to complications with the placenta or a birth defect.
They are also more likely to occur if women suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes or an infection that affects the baby, such as flu.
Stillbirths are more likely to occur if women are having twins or multiple pregnancies, are overweight, smoke, are over 35 or have a pre-existing condition, such as epilepsy.
What happens after a stillbirth?
If a baby has died, women may wait for their labour to start naturally or they may be induced if their health is at risk.
Bereavement support groups are available to parents who have suffered stillbirths.
Some find it helpful to name their baby or take pictures with them.
