Jessie J has confessed to feeling "happy tears" as the "It's My Party" songstress confirmed the arrival of her first child, a baby boy.

The talented singer decided not to share a photo of her new arrival, but did take to her Instagram Stories to share the news with her 13 million followers. In a lengthy post against a black background, she wrote: "A week ago my whole life changed. My son entered this world and my heart grew twice the size.

She finished the post by writing: "For all of you that have followed my journey to this moment, thank you for all your continued love and support. I will be back on Instagram when I'm ready."

Ahead of her son's arrival, the singer posed for a pregnancy photoshoot, with her sister taking a series of black-and-white shots of the mum-to-be showcasing her blossoming baby bump.

Revealing her directive for the photos, Jessie commented: "I don't want no fancy fancy pictures, no retouching. I want to look back at these and remember this time exactly as I looked and felt."

Last month, she joked about a series of nude snaps she shared while showing off her baby bump. The "Do It Like a Dude" singer posted several photos of herself in the bath, writing that she wanted "to remember this feeling forever". 

She added: "And anyone who has commented 'inappropriate' on this post. I bet you zoomed before you commented." Paloma Faith replied, writing: "Amazing pics …. Welcome to superhero territory," while Professor Green added: "Seeing and feeling those kicks even as the paternal figure is something else."

In November 2021, Jessie tearfully revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage, sharing a photo of herself holding up a pregnancy test, followed by the image of a quote that read: "Sometimes love won't be enough to make it work. And that's OK. It doesn't mean you've failed. – Seyda Noir."

Jessie captioned the pictures which a heartfelt message which started with a broken heart emoji and went on: "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. This morning. I feel like I have no control of my emotions. I may regret posting this.

"I may not. I actually don't know. 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."

She went on: "I have done 2 shows in 2 years and my soul needs it. Even more today. I know some people will be thinking she should just cancel it. But in this moment I have clarity on one thing. I started singing when I was young for joy, to fill my soul and self-love therapy, that hasn’t ever changed and I have to process this my way. I want to be honest and true and not hide what I’m feeling. I deserve that."
