Singer Jessie J shared very happy news today. The “Price Tag” singer, whose full name is Jessica Ellen Cornish, is pregnant with her rainbow baby! “I am so happy and terrified to finally share this… Please be gentle with me.”
To reveal the news, Jessie shared a video collage of herself showing off her growing baby bump. To close the post following the poignant beginning of her caption, she joked, “Honestly, ya girl just wants to ugly cry in public in a catsuit eating a chocolate covered pickle with no questions asked.” The singer had previously shared that she was trying to get pregnant on her own, without a partner.
The “Masterpiece” singer has been candid about the challenges she’s faced in her journey to become a mother. In November 2021, she suffered a miscarriage. At the time, she revealed, “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…” She continued by writing, “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 I’m avoiding the grief or the process, but because I know singing tonight will help me.”
In August, Jessie opened up about how she was still mourning the loss of her little one. “When I was 16 years old I wrote a list of things I wanted by the time I was 30 • 1st thing on the list was to be a Mum. Now I’m nearly 35 and some days the grief of losing a baby and it not being easy to have one, and wanting my life in that way to look completely different to what it looks like right now just overwhelms me. I know it’s healthy and normal to have days of complete sadness and to honour all the feelings that come up, good and bad. The bad isn’t often at all and yes I could go through this moment right now today alone in private and usually do, but today I am here. Because I know thousands of people around the 🌎 feel just like I do. Maybe you read this and feel the love I have for you. I hope you can. Connecting is key. Hugging you all.”
Congratulations to Jessie on the news of her pregnancy! We wish her love and good health as she prepares to welcome her little one into the world.
