The British singer and songwriter, the ‘Price Tag’ hitmaker Jessie J has opened up about her battle to having children. Before singing her song ‘Four Letter Word’ which talks about wanting to become a mother Jessie J revealed to the audience that she was told by doctors in 2014 that she is infertile.
“So four years ago, I was told that I couldn't have children, and it's OK, I'm going to have children, trust me. When the doctor told me, my reaction was, 'Oh hell no!' And I don't tell you guys for sympathy, I'm one of millions of women, and of men, that have gone through this and will go through this, and it can't become something that defines us. But, I wanted to write this song for myself in my moment of pain and of sadness. But, also to give myself joy and give other people something that they can listen to in that moment when it gets really hard.”
I a new interview with ‘The Times’ Jessie J admitted that she’s still hoping of having biological children one day. “I might go down the route of adoption or even surrogacy. I pray I have children the natural way, but if not, I'll deal with it”, Jessie said to the journalists.
Jessie’s boyfriend, American actor Channing Tatum has been publicly supportive of her struggle. After her speech about infertility during the concert in London Channing shared some praise on Instagram. “This woman just poured her heart out on stage, whoever was there got to witness something special,” captioned Channing a photo of Jessie’s concert.
