Despite suffering a tragic miscarriage and being informed she couldn’t have children, Jessie J has stated that she never gave up dream of becoming a mother.
The singer, 35, and her husband Chanan Safir Colman welcomed their son Sky into the world in May, claiming that her heart had doubled in size.
‘The feeling is indescribable I am flying in love. He is magic. He is literally all my dreams come true. He is my whole world,’ she shared at the time.
‘He and I are both doing great. I am soaking up every second and still can’t believe he is real, here and mine.’
Jessie miscarried in November 2021, only weeks before meeting basketball pro Chanan, and has been open about her grief and journey to parenting since then, despite experiencing reproductive challenges.
Sky’s adoring mother released a slideshow of gorgeous images of him shot when he was just a few days old.
Sky looked adorable as the photographer captured him sleeping, nursing, and even smiling while being carried tenderly in his father’s arms, as well as tucked between both of his parents and resting on his mother’s bosom.
This was set to Jessie’s heartbreaking 2018 song Four Letter Word from her fourth studio album R.O.S.E.
‘I wrote this song years after I was told I couldn’t have children in 2014,’ she commented in the caption on Instagram.
‘In 2015 I was told I needed a hysterectomy to cure the pain I felt most days. I said no thank you and instead changed my diet and took a spiritual journey to healing.
‘In 2021 I lost a baby, but I never gave up hope. Ever. Not once. Hope that whatever way I became a mother would always come to me in the right time. Naturally or not. I wanted to have a baby…’
The Price Tag performer continued: ‘In September 2022 in an airport in Rio Brazil I found out I was pregnant. I fell pregnant in the Sky.
‘This song hits so different now…’
‘I would say this is the end of the baby spam,’ she says, referring to her flood of happy Instagram postings since becoming a mother five weeks ago. But it will not be. I’ve never felt more connected to my body or my mission than I do right now.
‘Who I am as an artist is who I am in my life. Being a Mum is now a huge part of my identity and existence and I will celebrate it at every chance I get.
‘Sky is 11 days old in these pictures. Thank you @hannah.macgregor.photo.film for making me take these even though I was half asleep 😂’
On Father’s Day, Jessie uploaded a touching video of her father, Stephen, crying as he carried Sky beside her mother, Rose.
‘Video says it all,’ the Laserlight singer wrote in the caption. ‘Happy Father’s / Grandad’s day Dad. Man I’m so lucky.’
‘He just kept saying “I’m just so happy for you, I know how much you have always wanted this,”’ she continued, before adding that baby Sky was the fifth grandchild in the family.
The hitmaker’s parents are plainly pleased for their daughter and her long-awaited child.
