Chrissy said: "Every day is so different. When people ask how I’m doing, I say, 'I’m OK, today.' ... 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. These photos are only for the people who need them. The thoughts of others do not matter to me."

John added: "When we did, it really meant so much to so many people.
"I’m just grateful that my wife was courageous enough to do it … One of the ways we could carry on Jack’s memory was taking pictures of that moment. I was worried, like, I don’t want to commemorate this pain … [but the photos are] something to remember him by."
And John - who has four-year-old daughter Luna and Miles, two, with Chrissy - thinks the "challenges" the couple have been through together only make them stronger.
Speaking to Good Morning America in a joint interview with Chrissy, John shared: "We’ve been through so many challenges together and they’ve made her stronger, and I know that doesn’t always happen when people go through tragedy. But I feel like the challenges we face together have made us feel even more sure about who we are together as a couple, and who we are as a family."
