Chrissy Teigen brings her son's ashes with her when she travels.

The Sports Illustrated model and her husband John Legend tragically lost their son Jack half way through their pregnancy last year, but the family always make sure to bring Jack with them wherever they go.

Chrissy previously described her loss as the "greatest pain".

And their kids Luna and Miles also "love being a part of it" and put out glasses of water next to Jack's ashes because they were worried that he might have been thirsty.

"What felt comfortable for our family was him always being around," she told

"Whether we go on a vacation or something, they always say, 'Don’t forget baby Jack.' And then I have to pack him up. And then we get to where we’re going, they’re like, 'Oh my gosh, he must be thirsty.'

"This might sound crazy to people, but they’ll put a little glass of water next to his little box of ashes. And they really love being a part of it."

It comes after Chrissy paid tribute to Jack with a heartbreaking Instagram post, where she honoured "'the son we almost had".

"And 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," the star began.

"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."

Chrissy explained how her body struggled to adapt after she lost her baby.

"It’s really weird when you lose a baby and your body gets paused in time," she wrote alongside the picture.

"Usually you’d gain your 'yumyums I’m praaaagnant!' weight, then put on the weight of your little bebe.

"Then, ideally, you’d have your baby. And you would feed it from your boobs and your body would know to charge through and do what it does to get you back into fighting shape, whatever that may be, for however long it takes (F**K a snap-back)."

She added: "But man. When you lose a baby halfway through, your body just pauses,” she said. “It has nothing to do. No one to feed. And you’re just…stuck. Stuck with saggy boobs that were prepping to be milk bags, a belly that was ready to bake."
