Jessie J has been seen for the first time since she opened up about suffering a miscarriage, as she thanked fans for their outpouring of love.
The Price Tag hitmaker was pictured heading out for dinner with friends in Los Angeles following her emotional post.
Donning an all black outfit, she placed a hand on her stomach and smiled at the cameras.
The 33-year-old also shared a message on her Instagram Stories, after supportive messages from fans poured in after her heartbreaking news.
‘Your overwhelming instant out pour of love is felt, received and appreciated beyond measure,’ she wrote. ‘And has got me out of bed this morning. Thank you.’
The singer had also bravely vowed to continue with her concert in LA despite the heartbreaking news, as singing has always helped her through difficult times.
Jessie revealed the tragic news of her miscarriage on Instagram, sharing a photo of herself holding a positive pregnancy test.
She wrote: ‘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 💔.’
Jessie continued: ‘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 [sic].
‘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.
‘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,’ Jessie added.
‘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.’
The musician was previously told she would struggle to conceive children and announced the news at her Royal Albert Hall show in London in 2018. However, she was always determined to become a mother regardless of her relationship status.
Jessie only recently split from boyfriend Max Pham Nguyen after seven months of dating, and she was previously in a two-year relationship with actor Channing Tatum until last year.
