Jessie J has just dropped major news and the internet is going wild. She is expecting a new baby just over a year after she experienced a pregnancy loss.
The 34-year-old singer of “Price Tag” announced Friday that she is expecting a child in a tearful Instagram video to the tune of her song “Sunflower.”
In the description of the Reel, which starts with a positive pregnancy test and includes bump pictures as the singer’s pregnancy has progressed, she wrote, “I am so excited and nervous to finally share this.”
She openly shared her former experience with pregnancy loss and pleaded with her followers to “please be compassionate with me” while she went through this process.
Jessie was open about her sadness in August of last year, nine months after her miscarriage in November 2021.
“When I was 16 years old, I wrote a list of things I wanted by the time I was 30,” the singer said in a lengthy caption. “[First] 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.”
She adds “To get pregnant was an experience in itself and I will forever be grateful.”
We love this for Jessie! Congrats 🙂
