30-year-old singer Jessie J has revealed she can never have children. The ‘Bang Bang’ singer reportedly addressed her audience during her Rose tour gig at the Royal Albert on Tuesday night and revealed her secret health struggles.

According to a report in Metro.co.uk she said: “I was told four years ago that I can’t ever have children.I don’t tell you guys for sympathy because I’m one of millions of women and men that have gone through this and will go through this,” Jessie J said.

“It can’t be something that defines us but I wanted to write this song for myself in my moment of pain and sadness but also to give myself joy, to give other people something that they can listen to in that moment when it gets really hard.

“So if you’ve ever experienced anything with this or have seen somebody else go through it or have lost a child, then please know you’re not alone in your pain and I’m thinking of you when I sing this song,” she said.

The English singer and songwriter’s rumoured boyfriend, Hollywood actor Channing Tatum, took to Twitter to praise her words as ‘something special.’

“This woman just poured her heart out on stage at the Royal Albert Hall. Whoever was there got to witness something special. Wow,” she wrote.


Jessie J’s words come just days after it was revealed that former First Lady Michelle Obama struggled with infertility.

In her new book, Obama details her struggles to conceive with husband President Barack Obama, and that they used IVF treatment to conceive their two daughters.

“We were trying to get pregnant and it wasn’t going well,” Mrs. Obama, 54, writes in “Becoming.”

“We had one pregnancy test come back positive, which caused us both to forget every worry and swoon with joy, but a couple of weeks later I had a miscarriage, which left me physically uncomfortable and cratered any optimism we felt.”
