As well as sharing six-year-old Miles with Chrissy, they are also proud parents to eight-year-old Luna, 16-month-old Esti, 10-month-old Wren and Jack who the couple tragically lost at 20 weeks in 2020.

John recently opened up about how much he enjoys it when his children visit him at work when he’s judging on The Voice. 

Sharing a photo of Miles and Luna sitting in his judging chair, the Ordinary People singer confessed, “My favorite coaching advisors joined me for the first night of #TheVoiceLives!”.
