Paloma Faith has reassured Jessie J that she did the right thing by not cancelling her gig after suffering a miscarriage.

Jessie, 33, announced on Wednesday that she had got pregnant ‘on her own’ before a doctor discovered there was no heartbeat.

Alongside a picture of herself holding a pregnancy test, The Price Tag singer wrote on Instagram: ‘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.’

As she broke the tragic news, Jessie also informed fans that she would continue with her planned performance at The Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles, which marked her second show in two years.

She added: ‘What I do know is that I want to sing tonight. Not because I’m 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.’

The Flashlight hitmaker has since been inundated with messages of love and support from her followers, including one from 40-year-old Paloma, who shared her own pregnancy loss experience in the comments.

The Changing singer – who has two young children with her partner Leyman Lahcine – wrote: ‘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!’

Fellow pop star Pixie Lott, 30, also wrote: ‘I’m so sorry Jessie, sending loads of love.’

Meanwhile, TV presenter Laura Whitmore, 36, comforted: ‘Oh babe, I’m sorry. Sending love.’

Jessie has thanked her 10.5million followers for their ‘overwhelming instant outpour of love,’ which has been ‘felt, received and appreciated beyond measure.’

She said the words of strength from her fans ‘got her out of bed this morning.’

The singer-songwriter had also insisted that she is ‘strong’ as she explained her decision to carry on with her performance.

She continued in her original post that she ‘deserves’ to be ‘honest and true’ and ‘not hide’ what she’s feeling, not just for her audience but for her and ‘her little baby that did its best.’

‘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,’ she shared.

She also said she decided to get pregnant on her own because it’s ‘all she’s ever wanted’ and ‘life is short.’

She described getting pregnant as ‘a miracle’ and an experience she ‘will have again.’

‘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,’ she confessed.

The Voice coach had previously been told that she would struggle to conceive children, news she announced at her Royal Albert Hall show in London in 2018.

She just recently split from boyfriend Max Pham Nguyen after seven months of dating, and split from Channing Tatum last year following a two-year romance.
