Singer Bishop Briggs, whose real name is Sarah Grace McLaughlin, has revealed some exciting news. She is pregnant with her first child! The High Water singer shared the news in an exclusive with Paper Magazine.
Bishop is in the third trimester of her pregnancy and while she didn’t reveal the exact date she is due, she did share that her little one will be a Cancer like she is. The time period for Cancer star signs is June 21 to July 22. The news of Bishop’s pregnancy comes not long after the musician, who will be performing at Coachella this year, suffered the loss of her sister from ovarian cancer. “Nothing can compare to that moment in my life though. I’ve never loved anyone as much as I love her. And it wasn’t even in my line of fears because I thought I was gonna have a whole life with her. We were going to have the rest of our lives together.”
Bishop has been open about struggling with depression following the loss of her sister, who she called her “biggest supporter.” And she also is “grateful,” sharing, “I feel like my sister blessed me with this little baby. It feels like a little present from her, so there’s that light and darkness.”
In fact, Bishop began thinking about having a child while she was in the hospital with her sister. “I was looking at this person that I love so much and thinking that this is the only thing that matters in the world. Our connections with humans, our family, and the deep friendships that we have, that’s the number one thing that matters. I almost wanted to speed up life and get pregnant and hang out with my sister. But it’s ironic that’s when the first seed was planted because I was in the saddest part of my life, but it became the thing I clung to.”
Congratulations to Bishop on the news of her pregnancy! We wish her all the best as she prepares to become a mother.
