After revealing her struggle with fertility issues at a recent London show, Jessie J is opening up further about her determination to have kids, telling fans with a series of notes on her Instagram stories Saturday (Nov. 17) that she "will be a mother" one day.   

“After explaining the meaning of my song ‘Four Letter Word’ on stage during this tour. The love and support I have received have been overwhelming. Thank you," she wrote. "I was told 4 years ago I won’t be able to have children. I was also told I would need a hysterectomy immediately and to be put on medication. I refused the hysterectomy and I’m off all medication through natural medicine and diet change. I haven’t given up hope. I am doing all I can to make it happen the best way my body will allow.”

The singer used her platform to shine a light on how common fertility issues are, adding: "Millions of women go through a tough and emotional journey to motherhood. It's something that needs to be spoken about openly. It’s taken me a long time to be open. It’s it’s my truth. And when I put it in my music it’s out there.  My journey is just one in millions that exist. I stand with you ladies. Strong in our emotional pain. To turn it into joy.”

She also offered encouragement for other women struggling to conceive. "I will be a mother," she wrote. "As will you. I believe in miracles. But if it doesn’t happen naturally. Then that wasn’t meant to be the journey. But a mother is within all of us. That inspires every day. We are strong! Time will tell."
