Jessie J has revealed she can't have children but says she won't let it define her
Jessie was very honest with the crowd during her concert in London on Monday.
The thirty-year-old singer candidly spoke about her fertility struggles prior to singing, Four Letter Word.
The song has heartbreaking lyrics that include:
This just changed my life
Can't believe I, can't believe I, can't believe I don't have time
I talk to you at night
Won't believe I, won't believe I, won't believe I won't have time"
And now Jessie has illuminated their meaning by telling fans that she was told four years ago she cannot have children.

According to OK! she told the crowd that she was not looking for sympathy, but revealed her personal struggle because:
"If you’ve ever experienced anything with this or have seen somebody else go through it or have lost a child, then please know that you’re not alone in your pain and I’m thinking of you when I sing this song."
Jessie had previously spoken openly about wanting children. She says she doesn't want her fertility struggles to consume her identity:
"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."
She is currently dating Channing Tatum who took to Instagram to praise her honesty.
Channing was in the crowd listening and captioned the picture:
"This woman just poured her heart out on stage at the Royal Albert Hall. Whoever was there got to witness something special. Wow."
Fertility issues affect so many women, Jessie's bravery in opening up could help others struggling and we love her for that.
