Jessie J in a recent social media post shared some sad news. The singer announced that she had suffered a miscarriage. Sharing a photo of herself posing with a pregnancy test, Jessie revealed that she was secretly pregnant, but had just lost the baby.
The 33-year-old took to Instagram with a heartfelt post showcasing her pain as she held up a pregnancy test that read "not pregnant" with tears in her eyes.
Another picture included a devastating quote which read: "Sometimes love won't be enough to make it work, and that's ok.
"It doesn't mean that you've failed."
The singer also included a devastating caption to accompany the two images, she wrote: "Yesterday morning I was laughing with a friend saying 'seriously though how am I going to get through my gig in LA tomorrow night without telling the whole audience I am pregnant.
“Yesterday morning I was laughing with a friend saying ‘seriously though how am I going to get through my gig in LA tomorrow night without telling the whole audience I am pregnant.’ By yesterday afternoon I was dreading the thought of getting through the gig without breaking down…after going for my 3rd scan and being told there was no longer a heartbeat,” she captioned the post.
“This morning. I feel like I have no control of my emotions. I may regret posting this. I may not. I actually don’t know," she added.
The hitmaker had decided that in spite of her grief, she still wanted to get on stage to perform for her fans but wanted to make it clear that this would help her to feel better.
“I want to be honest and true and not hide what I’m feeling. I deserve that. I want to be as myself as I can be in this moment. Not just for the audience but for myself and my little baby that did its best. I know myself and I know I would talk about it on stage because that’s who I am. So instead of a tearful emotional speech trying to explain my energy. This feels safer,” Jessie went on to write.
Jessie also opened up about her decision to remain a single mother because 'it's all I've ever wanted'. Calling her pregnancy a miracle, she also said that she will be ok.
“I decided to have a baby on my own. Because it’s all I’ve ever wanted and life is short. To get pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget and I know I will have again. I'm still in shock, the sadness is overwhelming. But I know I am strong, and I know I will be ok,” she confirmed.
Sending out a message to all the women around the world who have lost their babies during pregnancy, she wrote, “I also know millions of women all over the world have felt this pain and way worse. I feel connected to those of you I know and those of you I don’t. It’s the loneliest feeling in the world. So I will see you tonight LA. I may crack fewer jokes but my heart will be in the room.”
Jessie was last in a relationship with actor Channing Tatum. The two officially called it quits last year.
