Jessie J responded to the support online with a sweet messaging on her Instagram Stories.
“Your overwhelming instant outpour of love is felt, received and appreciated beyond measure," she said. "And has got me out of bed this morning. Thank you.”
On Wednesday, the 33-year-old pop star shared a photo of herself holding a positive pregnancy test. In the photo’s caption she told fans she had miscarried after being told during her third scan that there was no longer a heartbeat.
Jessie also said she had decided to have the baby on her own. It is not clear how far along Jessie’s pregnancy was.
In her post, Jessie 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 third 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.”
The Price Tag singer confirmed she intended to go through with a concert in LA because singing will ‘help’ her after her loss.
She added: “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.
“I’m still in shock, the sadness is overwhelming.
“But I know I am strong, and I know I will be ok.”
Jessie’s fans took to social media to send her supportive messages. One fan shared: “Sending so much love to @JessieJ during this difficult time. I can’t imagine what she is experiencing but I hope she finds healing from this unimaginable loss.”
Another fan wrote: “So very sorry for your loss, sending you so much love and light.”
A third fan added: “Sending you love and strength.”
A fourth wrote: “Sending you the biggest hug. I am sorry this has happened. Please take any time you need to deal with the pain and heartbreak. Please know you are no less of a mother, and you can talk about your baby whenever you need to. So many people love you.”
Pop star Paloma Faith shared her own miscarriage story: “Jessie you are 100 per cent 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 host Laura Whitmore said: “Oh babe, I’m sorry. Sending love.”
All About Tonight singer Pixie Lott also offered her support, writing: “I’m so sorry Jessie, sending loads of love.”
