Jessie J has said she hopes to have children with new love Channing Tatum, after previously being told she can't have children.

She told The Mirror; 'I still believe in miracles. And as women know, it sometimes doesn’t just happen, it’s a process.

'The reason I spoke about it before wasn’t for sympathy and it still isn’t, it’s to just be open about it.'

Jessie J has previously been very vocal about her fertility issues, including at a concert at the Royal Albert Hall in November 2018. Performing songs from her album, she introduced the track Four Letter Word with this spiel, reports The Metro: ‘I was told four years ago that I can’t ever have children.’

‘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.’

She added: ‘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.’

Lyrics to the song include: ‘B-A-B-Y/ I talk to you at night’

‘The pain, it makes me so impulsive/ I hate I can't control what I do/ Even though I know the reason, I still cry out for you/ So many highs, it's balanced/ I just gotta accept my truth’

And ‘God knows I’m waiting to be a mother’.

Interviews around the time Jessie found out her sad news, in 2014, when she was 26, have now been dug up and in them, she frequently mentions babies.

In one Evening Standard interview, she said: 'I’ve always been broody.

'I don’t know why that’s made such a big deal of. I want to be my parents in 34 years’ time. They’ve been married for 36 years. I want to live to 100 and see my kids’ kids grow up ..

And in 2016, two years after discovering the news of her fertility issue, she told Women's Health: ‘I talk about my children every day,'

'Even though they don't exist. It sounds really weird, but I do. I put into the universe that I love them… who knows when it's going to happen?'

Jessie, who has previously spoken about heart problems which led to her suffering a stroke aged 18, hasn’t detailed what specific fertility issue she has.

FYI, though, the leading issues that can cause infertility in women include ovulation problems as a result of PCOS, thyroid problems and premature ovarian failure, scarring in the womb from surgery, fibroids, endometriosis (which affects 1.5 million women and, a year ago, led Lena Dunham to have a total hysterectomy aged 31), and pelvic inflammatory disease.
