Chrissy Teigen appeared alongside her husband, John Legend, at an election-eve drive-in rally in Philadelphia for Kamala Harris on Monday night.

The outing was the model’s first public appearance since sharing her pregnancy loss in early October.

After taking to the stage to perform, Legend invited his wife and two children onstage with him.

“I want to send a shout-out - actually, can you come onstage, baby?” he said.

“I want you guys to see, my wife is here. My daughter, Luna, is here. My son, Miles, is here. We're teaching our young people early to participate in their democracy.”

Wearing a black facemask and a white blazer, Teigen joined Legend onstage alongside her children to say hello and wave to  attendees.

Legend then paid tribute to Teigen by dedicating a “special song” to his wife.

“I wrote this song as a tribute to our relationship and the fact that love can get us through all kinds of tough times,” he said.

“We know that the whole nation is going through tough times right now…this song is called 'Never Break.'”

Teigen and her children left the stage as Legend began to perform.

In October, Teigen shared a post on social media revealing that she and Legend had suffered the loss of their third child, Jack.

In a statement, the model wrote: “We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before.

“We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn't enough."

Teigen was praised by some but criticised by others for sharing her experiences, prompting her to take a break from social media.

A few weeks later, she published a heartfelt essay on Medium which addressed those who claimed she should not have shared the images.“I cannot express how little I care that you hate the photos,” she wrote.

“How little I care that it’s something you wouldn’t have done.

“I lived it, I chose to do it, and more than anything, these photos aren’t for anyone but the people who have lived this or are curious enough to wonder what something like this is like,” she added.
