Singer Vanessa Carlton has revealed she is recovering from the effects of an ectopic pregnancy.

Since her pregnancy had settled in her fallopian tube, she had been treated with chemotherapy to shrink the foetus and try to save the tube, but on Oct. 28, “Despite our best efforts, my tube started to rupture and I was experiencing internal bleeding,” Carlton wrote on her website. “My doctor performed a successful surgery and removed my entire right fallopian tube.”

As a result, the A Thousand Miles singer, 33, has had to cancel dates on her tour while she recovers, having only just announced her pregnancy during the first week of her tour.

But despite the loss of one of her fallopian tubes – and a potential baby – the former ballet dancer, who came out as bisexual in 2010, kept her sense of humour. “As my doctor was explaining to me what happened the night before, my fiancĂ© showed up. He had flown all night. He had my underwear. My hunter green lace ones :-) I realize I am a lucky woman on many levels here.”
