After the deadly shooting at Planned Parenthood in Colorado last week, celebrity couple John Legend and his pregnant wife Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter to express their pain.

In the midst of the somber moment, model and host Chrissy went on the record about how incidents like these spark the immediate sense to give back. She revealed the tragic incident only makes her pro-choice support strengthen.  In support of his wife, John followed up with a re-tweet. The couple is donating as a aid to provide comfort and relief to the non-profit organization that provides reproductive health services.

Entertainment Weekly confirmed by issuing the following statement:

Following the deadly shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic that left three dead and nine injured in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Friday, celebrities took to social media to express their grief and show their support for the non-profit organization that provides reproductive health services.

Teigen took to Twitter to announce that she would be donating to the organization, and she encouraged her and her husband’s followers to do the same.

“Every time s**t like this happens, John and I immediately make another donation to planned parenthood,” the 29-year-old pregnant model tweeted, followed by a retweet from her husband and another tweet accompanied by a direct link to the donation site.
