Last month, singer Jessie J announced that she was expecting her first child following a devastating miscarriage in November 2021. Ahead of her appearance at the BRIT Awards, the singer shared a heartfelt video on Instagram to reveal the sex of her child.
In her video, Jessie is wearing a white robe and it is pulled to the side to reveal her growing bump and sings a few bars from her upcoming single. In the caption of the post, she teases a bit of a reveal writing, “Since I wrote this song every time I play it or sing it he moves like crazy… so I think this song is the one.” Further in the caption, she officially confirms her child’s sex. “Oh yeah… I’m having a boy.”
A few hours later, Jessie took to the red carpet, her first red carpet appearance in 10 years, at the BRIT Awards. Jessie, whose full name is Jessica Ellen Cornish, wore a stunning all-red ensemble that displayed her baby bump. The “Price Tag” singer held her bump lovingly as she posed for the cameras.
Shortly after announcing her pregnancy, Jessie shared a video of herself performing in Brazil and reflecting on how she felt at the time, as she was pregnant but hadn’t yet announced it. “My adrenaline excitement and anxiety were on 1000. You can see me repeating to myself ‘You are ok you are ok’ I felt like I was outside of my body the whole time I was in Brazil but especially in this moment. No one knew and I came off stage feeling like I had performed the show 100 times faster than I should of. Like I sang like Theodor from the chipmunks sped up. I came off and just sobbed. Woooo the emotions / hormones were HIGH. Watching this back and fast forward to now and laying here at 3am feeling my baby kick inside me…. Got tears of gratitude running like a river down my neck. Life. Grateful beyond anything I’ve ever felt.”
The singer has admitted to feeling very nervous this pregnancy following her loss over a year ago. When announcing her pregnancy, the “Masterpiece” singer wrote, “I am so happy and terrified to finally share this… Please be gentle with me.”
Congratulations to Jessie on the news of her baby boy! We wish her lots of love as she prepares to welcome her son into the world.
