Jessie J has shared her wish to become a mother “whichever way it happens” after a devastating miscarriage in 2021.
In 2014, Jessie J was diagnosed with endometriosis and warned by doctors she may need a hysterectomy, which could impact her dreams of motherhood.
During an interview on Michelle Visage’s podcast Rule Breakers, Jessie J talked about her joy at discovering she was pregnant in 2021, explaining that suffering the side effects of pregnancy made her cry tears of happiness.
“I’m grateful that I found the joy in it, and I’m grateful that I got pregnant,” she told Visage. “I got pregnant, and that is the experience of a lifetime for me.
“I was told that I would never [conceive] and so for me to even experience the morning sickness and all of that … could make me cry with happiness, just that I got to do that.
“And I know it will happen for me one day.”
Jessie J revealed that she hopes to become a mother in the next 2 years, “whichever way it happens.”
When asked by Visage if she wanted to have a baby soon, she responded: “Oh 100%. For sure in the next two years I want to have a baby. If I can. Whichever way it happens: naturally, surrogate, IVF, adopted, whatever — I’m open.”
She added, “I have such maternal energy and I’ve always been, ‘Just give me your baby.’ If you meet me, just hand me your baby. I just love babies and children. I love it.”
Jessie J opened up about the pain of suffering a miscarriage after revealing her decision to have a baby on her own in Last November.
The “Do It Like A Dude” J shared an image of herself holding up a positive pregnancy test alongside a heartfelt message explaining that she had miscarried.
“I decided to have a baby on my own. Because it’s all I’ve ever wanted and life is short,” she wrote.
“To get pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget, and I know I will have again.
“I’m still in shock, the sadness is overwhelming. But I know I am strong, and I know I will be OK.”
Later in the interview with Visage, she opened up about the toll her pregnancy loss had on her mental health, both physically and mentally.
“When you haven’t been through a miscarriage, physically, it’s really hard to understand,” she explained.
“It’s the most painful, because it’s so hormonal — your body and your hormones are just crazy. I remember crying and going, ‘I don’t even feel like I want to cry.'”
Jessie J discussed how every woman’s experience is unique to them.
“Becoming a parent, whether it’s for six weeks, or your whole life, is such a life-changing experience, and no one can tell you how your journey looks or how you how you grieve or how you process — that’s not anyone else’s business but yours,” she added.
The Star previously opened up about her fertility struggles on-stage as she revealed her “sadness” that Jessie J could not conceive a child.
Jessie J reportedly made the revelation during a performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall in November 2018.
And in 2020, Jessie J hinted about her fertility struggles while revealing that she hopes to be a mom one day.
Uploading a snap of herself as a baby to celebrate International Mother’s Day, the singer applauded all mothers while sharing her dreams.
She wrote in the accompanying caption, “Women are INCREDIBLE! I love you ALL. This is me when I was a baby. One day. I will be a mother.”
