Jessie J is mourning the loss of her unborn baby.  The star shared the traumatic experience on Instagram. 

She says she learned about the miscarriage when she went for her third scan on Tuesday. 

This was the same day she was scheduled for a gig. "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”, "she wrote on Instagram. 

But shortly after her conversation with her friend, she learned that her child is no more. 

"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," she wrote.

The 'Who You Are' hitmaker said she lost control over her feelings. 

"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," she added. 

However, she said despite the loss, she was going to continue with her gig. 

"What I do know is that I want to sing tonight. Not because I'm avoiding the grief or the process, but because I know singing tonight will help me," she wrote. 

The singer says she hasn't been having a lot of gigs. 

"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. 

"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," she added. 

Jessie J also revealed that her pregnancy was a miracle and she was hopeful for a second pregnancy. 

"I decided to have a baby on my own. Because it’s all I’ve ever wanted 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. 

The singer added that she was still in shock and feeling sad. 

"I'm still in shock, the sadness is overwhelming. But I know I am strong, and I know I will be ok. I also know millions of women all over the world have felt this pain and way worse. I feel connected to those of you I know and those of you I don’t. 🫂It’s the loneliest feeling in the world," she wrote.
