Staying positive! Jessie J revealed that she’s not giving up on having kids someday after announcing during a concert that she was struggling with infertility. The singer is here to say that she’s keeping a positive mindset and hoping for a family in the future — maybe with her boyfriend, Channing Tatum?
“Four, four-and-a-half, five years ago, I was diagnosed with this disease, which is making it harder,” the 31-year-old admitted during a recent interview on the Heart Breakfast radio show. “I was told I can’t have children, but I don’t believe it. I believe in miracles. I haven’t given up.”
We love the “Flashlight” artist’s amazing outlook. She’s not just keeping her fingers crossed, she’s taken strides to live a healthier life. “Over the last four years, I’ve changed my diet. I changed the way I live, I’ve done a lot of self-work. I am still in the process of it,” she explained.
Back in November, the pop star opened up about her fertility issues while performing “Four Letter Word” at London’s Royal Albert Hall. “I knew that it would help women and men that have fertility issues,” she acknowledged. “And, just to be open about it and start a conversation that can help someone that doesn’t know how to talk about it.”
At the time her hunky beau, 39, praised her boldness. “This woman just poured her heart out on stage at the Royal Albert Hall. Whoever was there got to witness something special. Wow,” he gushed on Instagram.
The A-listers were first romantically linked in October and seem to be loving their time together. However, they’re taking it one day at a time. When asked if they discussed having a family, the British babe responded, “No! Just because he’s Channing Tatum, everyone has sped this up into, ‘Are you getting married?’”
She noted, “I have been in relationships with people longer than Chan, but they’re not famous so no one really cares.” The two are picture-perfect so you can’t blame fans for being so obsessed. “We’re having a lovely time,” she divulged. “And, I’m very, very respectful of his situation and his [privacy].”
Keep doing you, Jessie!
