Amanda Holden has remembered her late son after the heartbreaking news that Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have suffered a miscarriage with their third child.

The Britain’s Got Talent star’s son Theo was stillborn in 2011 when she was seven months pregnant.

There has been an outpouring of love towards the couple after they made the sad announcement on social media on Thursday from celebrities and fans.

One fan wrote on Chrissy’s Instagram post: ‘In Lebanese culture we believe babies like Jack are angels that God selectively chooses to watch over you. Sending you light.’

The TV star, who also has daughters Alexa, 14 and eight-year-old Hollie, wrote: ‘This is how I dealt with my loss x’.

The follower who made the original comment replied: ‘You’re blessed with an angel now. Hugs!’

Amanda, 49, became very emotional when recalling giving birth to Theo in a recent appearance on a BBC special praising NHS staff.

‘I felt him in my arms for the first time and realised I was still a mummy, even though he was fast asleep,’ she said.

‘The thing that I always remember most about him was his perfectly-formed eyebrows, which all my children have.’

Chrissy had been taken to hospital for excessive bleeding during her pregnancy, and had told fans she and baby were both fine after undergoing a blood transfusion.

Announcing she had suffered a miscarriage, she shared a series of black and white pictures from the hospital including one of her and husband John – who are also parents to daughter Luna and son Miles – cradling their son, who they had named Jack.

Thanking everyone for their ‘positive energey, thoughts and prayers’, Chrissy spoke about how her family would deal with the loss.

‘We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience,’ she went on, ‘but everyday can’t be full of sunshine.

‘On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.’
