Jessie J announced her pregnancy back in January and shared updates about her little one in the weeks leading up to his birth. In January, she opened up about her first trimester woes in an Instagram video, and throughout February, she posted various clips of her singing live on social media, dedicating some to her baby boy. She also showed off her baby bump at the 2023 Brits.
Then, on March 19, she shared an ultrasound photo of her son on Instagram and wrote a heartfelt letter to him in the caption. “Thank you for coming to me. Thank you for trusting me that my body can keep you safe. Thank you for gifting me with the most special experience already so far and with the most important role I will ever play in my entire life,” she wrote. “I love you so hard it blows my mind this is real. I’m yours forever my son. I cannot wait to meet you.”
The singer has been transparent about her motherhood journey ever since revealing in August 2022 that she experienced a pregnancy loss in November 2021. She spoke about her grief in a candid Instagram post, writing in a caption, “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.”
She added, “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.”
Of her new baby, Jessie J thanked those “who followed my journey to this moment” and for their “continued love and support.” She concluded her Instagram statement saying she’ll be back on the platform when she’s ready.
