Baby Arrival: Singer Jessie J undergo C-section as she shares first photo of son’ Jessie J, the ‘Price Tag’ singer, recently announced the arrival of her son in May and revealed the first photo of her baby boy on Instagram on Thursday. She even revealed that the birth didn’t go as planned and she has to undergo an unplanned C-section for a safe birth. The photo showed an adorable close-up snap of the newborn’s tiny fingers clasped around the singer’s thumb. She added a simple caption across the image: “In love.” The sweet photo showed the newborn wearing a white outfit and surrounded by white and gray blankets.
Her post came as Jessie J revealed the news of her son’s birth in an Instagram reel with footage taken of her hours before birth, dancing and twerking playfully around a hospital room while sporting a hospital gown. “I spent 9 months prepping for a natural birth,” the singer wrote in the caption, adding details of the strict food and exercise regimen she followed during her pregnancy in hopes to deliver in “a pool birth ideally with no medication.” But, her son had other plans, reported People.
Baby Arrival: Singer Jessie J undergo C-section as she shares first photo of son
‘I went into active labor the night before’
“I had a scan at a few days off of 40 weeks and he was completely the wrong way around and stuck as he was a little chunkier than your average and long,” she wrote. “I did everything to try and turn him for two months but he said ‘Nah mum I wanna make an entrance out the roof, not the front door.'” Despite her hope for a natural birth, the singer ultimately took an alternative route to bring her baby boy into the world safely. “I was advised to have a planned C-section for the safest birth. “This video was taken five minutes before I went down to surgery. I went into active labor the night before and feeling all the feels but mostly just excitement for us to meet our baby boy,” she continued, adding “I guess I’m sharing this because so many people have said, ‘Do you feel like you missed out on the birth you wanted?’ I had a birth and it was everything I wanted because I got him at the end of it, that’s all that matters.”
‘You had a belly birth’
On Friday, Jessie J shared more thoughts about her cesarean section in an Instagram story and made it clear she has no time for haters. “I don’t think I realized the impact my post would have on so many women who have felt ashamed or guilt from having a C-section,” Jessie J wrote, adding, “Planned or emergency. If no one has told you I will. It is by no means the easy way out. It is a birth. Politely f— anyone who makes you feel anything different.” The singer continued, “You had a belly birth. Whether it was a choice or not you did or had to do what was right for your baby and for you to be healthy and arrive safely.”
‘I am flying in love’
“A week ago my whole life changed,” she wrote across a black background. “My son entered this world and my heart grew twice the size. The feeling is indescribable. I am flying in love. He is magic. He is all my dreams come true. He is my whole ? He and I are both doing great ☁️ I am soaking up every second and still can’t believe he is real, mine and here *Happy tears* For all of you that have followed my journey to this moment, thank you for all your continued love and support,” she wrote.
