Jessie J has vowed that she will fight to be a mother in an emotional post after revealing she was unable to conceive a child naturally.

The singer, 30, told fans she discovered she had fertility issues four years ago and detailed her ‘pain and sadness’ at the situation as she took to the stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday night.

She has taken to Instagram to thank her followers for their ‘love and support’ in the wake of the heartbreaking admission, shares Daily Mail.

She wrote: ‘After explaining the meaning of my song ‘Four Letter Word’ on stage during this tour. The love and support I have received has been overwhelming.

‘Thank you. 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 I’m off all medication through natural medicine and diet change.’

The star, who is currently in a relationship with actor Channing Tatum, also revealed that she hadn’t lost hope that she would have a family, writing: ‘I am doing all I can to make it happen the best way my body will allow … I will be a mother … 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 everyday. We are strong. Time will tell.’

‘I don’t tell you guys for sympathy because I’m one of millions of women and men that have gone through this and will go through this.’

‘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.

‘So if you’ve ever experienced anything with this or have seen somebody else go through it or have lost a child, then please know you’re not alone in your pain and I’m thinking of you when I sing this song.’
