Jessie J opens up about her own miscarriage

Jessie J has opened up about her own miscarriage, saying she had decided to take a chance on having a baby on her own, reports The Telegraph.

The 29-year-old singer, who said she had thought about having a child since she was eight years old, said she had been inspired by her friend Ayesha Curry, who said she had suffered a miscarriage after falling pregnant at 16.

“I said to myself: ‘I’m not ready to be on my own. I’m too young,’” Jessie J, whose real name is Jessica Cornish, told Elle UK. “So I had a miscarriage. But I’m fine, don’t worry. I’m cool.”

She continued: “I said to my manager: ‘I want to have a child, I’m just not ready. But when I do, I want it to be me, and no one else.’”

Jessie J, who is an ambassador for the World Health Organization and British charity that promotes maternal health, said that the accident had helped her decide to look after her own body in the future.

“I was really scared that after having a miscarriage I would be like, ‘Who knows what’s going to happen to me now?’ But after the first week, I was like, ‘Oh, no.’ I put my diary aside. I didn’t turn my phone on. I just didn’t think.

“If that had been me, going for a week on that little bit of time of no possibility, I think that’s why I’m a better person, because I put things in perspective,” she said.

“They say babies shouldn’t always be the center of your universe, but they can,” she added. “They can be your heart.”
