The tattoo is to commemorate and honor his life that was sadly cut short at just 20 weeks old. Chrissy suffered from placenta abruption and had uncontrollable bleeding throughout the last month of her pregnancy, even landing her in the hospital. There they did everything they could to try to stop the bleeding including countless blood transfusions. 

Chrissy underwent a total of 7 blood transfusions but sadly they didn’t stop the bleeding and Chrissy and John Legend lost their son.

Chrissy’s friend, Kimmie Kyees, and her 6 friends hosted a blood drive in Jack’s honor on Oct. 31. They each donated a pint of blood in his honor and are paying it forward. It was a gesture that left Chrissy in tears. She couldn’t believe that her friend would do something like that for her and her family.

Ok, I tried writing this 4 times but the tears were too much. Here we go again, with my heart full of warmth and happiness. My friend @kimmiekyees sent me this with the caption “Me and 6 of my friends donated blood to replace the 7 pints you were given in the hospital, in honor of baby Jack. I love you friend 💛” . . Phewwwww the tears. I’m overwhelmed by our circle of friends. The love I feel for each and every person in our circle actually makes me ache. @kimmiekyees, I’ve known you for so many years now. You know every story, you hear every life gripe, you’re amazing at what you do but the way you treat my kids and family is cherished always. To do something like this for baby jack is just…I dunno. Beautiful. . . @kimmiekyees was told by the volunteers that donations were severely down because high schoolers are responsible for so much of the blood donated. Usually they’d get a coupon for an ice cream cone or a movie ticket, but without school in session, donations are down. I have a lot of friends who normally would donate from a special day at work, but alas, no work. . . Kimmie, I love you. I love this. I am so proud of the people I surround myself and my family with. 💨🍃🦋

Making light of the whole situation Chrissy commented on her own post saying that if Kimmie got too booked up as a nail tech to do her own nails she would be very sad. She even went on to say that she stinks to try to make people not want to book her, when we all know that if she does Chrissy’s nails she has to be amazing!
