John Legend has paid heartbreaking tribute to his wife Chrissy Teigen after the loss of their son Jack.

The 41 year old and his model wife, 34, announced earlier this month that they had devastatingly lost their baby boy shortly after his birth.

All Of Me hitmaker John has now spoken out on the tragedy for the first time after dedicating an emotional performance of his new song Never Break at the Billboard Music Awards.

With lyrics such as: "Built on a foundation, strong enough to stay, we will never break, as the water rises, and the mountains shake, our love will remain," John's poignant performance sent goosebumps across the globe.

John wrote to his 13.2million followers: "This is for Chrissy. I love and cherish you and our family so much.

"We've experienced the highest highs and lowest lows together. 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.

Discussing the origins of the song, John continued: "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.

"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.

"Thank you to everyone who has been sending us prayers and well wishes, flowers, cards, words of comfort and empathy.

"We feel and appreciate your love and support more than you know. More than anything, we've heard so many stories about how so many other families have experienced this pain, often suffering in silence.

"It's a club no one wants to be a part of, but it's comforting to know we're not alone.

"I'm sure Chrissy will have much more to say about this when she's ready. But just know we're grateful and we're sending love to all of you and your families."
