Jessie J has been praised for speaking out about her miscarriage, with a charity saying she will have helped others to ‘feel less alone’.

The Price Tag hitmaker recently revealed she had suffered a miscarriage after deciding to have a baby on her own.

A spokesperson for the Miscarriage Association told Metro.co.uk: ‘We’re so sorry to read about Jessie J’s miscarriage and the loss of her much-wanted baby – such devastating news, just when she had been thinking of announcing her pregnancy. 

‘We hope that she finds some comfort in the many messages of support posted online and also, perhaps, in the knowledge that by sharing her experience, she will have made others feel less alone.’

Jessie shared a photo of herself holding a pregnancy test on Instagram, penning an emotional caption as she shared the sad news.

The 33-year-old explained: ‘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.’

Jessie, who was previously told she couldn’t have children, explained that she was determined to still go ahead with her concert in Los Angeles tonight, not to ‘avoid the grief’ but because singing will help her.

‘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,’ she wrote.

‘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 [sic].’

Jessie went on to reveal that she ‘decided to have a baby on [her] own’ as it’s been her lifelong dream 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,’ she said.

Since, she’s received many messages of support and has been spotted out and about in LA, heading to dinner with friends.

Jessie first revealed in 2018, while on stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall, that she was told she would struggle to conceive children.
