Chrissy Teigen has been overwhelmed with emotion thanks to her friends humbling and kind gesture.

Just weeks ago, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend shared the heartbreaking news that they had lost their unborn son, Jack.

While trying to save the baby, Chrissy reportedly needed 7 pints of blood to try and cope with her immense blood loss.

While Chrissy is still recovering, 7 of her close friends got together and headed to a blood donation centre where they each donated their blood to 'replace the 7 pints' Chrissy was given and all in the honour of baby Jack who they never got to meet.

Sharing on Instagram, Chrissy said:

"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. 💨🍃🦋"
