Jessie J took to social media on Thanksgiving Eve with heartbreaking news – she has suffered a miscarriage.
The 33-year-old singer shared she had decided to have a “baby on her own” because it’s “all I’ve ever wanted and life is short.”
Jessie called the pregnancy a miracle, but after a 3rd scan revealed the baby no longer had a heartbeat, she’s been left in shock and overwhelmed with sadness.
Read her full post below.
???? 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 ????
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.
What I do know is that I want to sing tonight. Not because Im avoiding the grief or the process, but because I know singing tonight will help me.
I have done 2 shows in 2 years and my soul needs it. Even more today. I know some people will be thinking she should just cancel it. But in this moment I have clarity on one thing. I started singing when I was young for joy, to fill my soul and self love therapy, that hasn’t ever changed and I have to process this my way.
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 it’s 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.
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.
Im still in shock, the sadness is overwhelming.
But I know I am strong, and I know I will be ok.
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 less jokes but my heart will be in the room.

Sending love and prayers to Jessie J during this difficult time.
