Jessie J just opened up about the “shock and overwhelming sadness” she is going through after suffering a miscarriage.

The 33-year-old Price Tag singer took to Instagram to tell her fans what she has been dealing with, revealing that medics could no longer find her baby’s heartbeat when she went for her third scan on Wednesday.

According to Jessie’s candid post, the scan happened on the same day she was due to perform on stage in Los Angeles. Rather than cancel the performance, the Domino singer said she wanted to go ahead with the show because it was what her “soul” needed.

Jessie’s heart-breaking post began: “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”

“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

“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.

“What I do know is that I want to sing tonight. Not because Im avoiding the grief or the process, but because I know singing tonight will help me.

“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.

“I know myself and I know I would talk about it on stage because that’s who I am. So instead of a tearful emotional speech trying to explain my energy. This feels safer.”

Jessie J then went on to tell her fans that she decided to have the baby on her own because “life is short”, before saying that it was a “miracle” that she was even able to get pregnant in the first place.

In an interview with BBC News back in 2019, Jessie mentioned that doctors told her it was unlikely that she would be able to conceive naturally after being diagnosed with adenomyosis five years prior.

In her heartfelt post, Jessie went on to say that she knows she isn’t the only person in the world to go through the pain of a miscarriage, and feels “connected” to anyone who has experienced the same thing.

“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,” her post continued.

“Im 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.

“So I will see you tonight LA.

“I may crack less jokes but my heart will be in the room.”

Jessie J has understandably received a huge outpouring of support from all of her fans following her candid message.

Only Love Can Hurt Like This singer Paloma Faith said: “Jessie you are 100% doing the right thing. I had a miscarriage on a film set where I was filming and I just kept filming. You get your joy from singing and you need your joy more than ever. You will and should have a baby. Women are amazing!”

Love Island presenter Laura Whitmore commented saying, ” oh babe, I’m sorry. Sending love ❤️ xxx” while Mama Do singer Pixie Lott added, “I’m so sorry jessie sending loads of love ❤️❤️❤️❤️”
