The 34-year-old pop star made the announcement on Instagram Friday with a montage of clips of her growing baby bump.
“I am so happy and terrified to finally share this. Please be gentle with me ?,” Jessie captioned the emotional video, which had her song “Sunflower” playing over it.
She then added, “Honestly, ya girl just wants to ugly cry in public in a catsuit eating a chocolate covered pickle with no questions asked ?????”
Fans and celebs commented their congratulations, including Kelly Rowland, who wrote, “AHHHHHHHHH SCREAMING CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU!!”
Ruby Rose added, “When you told me – in my heart I’d hearts I felt the most gratitude.. you deserve this beyond belief xxx”
Jessie has openly talked about the fact that she has been trying to get pregnant for over a year.
In November 2021, the “Bang Bang” singer shared via Instagram that after going for her third scan at the doctor’s office, she was told there was “no longer a heartbeat ?.”
Jessie also gave some insight at the time into her motherhood journey.
“I decided to have a baby on my own,” she explained. “Because it’s all I’ve ever wanted and life is short. To get pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget and I know I will have again.”
This past November, Jessie reflected again on the loss of her baby.
“A year ago today I was told my baby no longer had a heartbeat,” the “Domino” singer told her followers on social media.
“Although I can tell the story now without crying, have and still am discovering all the positives that experience gave me.”
She concluded, “Time helps but it never truly fades. Sending love and strength to anyone’s heart that has or is experiencing this right now. And to my little angel baby. I feel you everywhere. Especially today.”
It is unclear if Jessie is currently in a relationship. Her last high-profile romance was with Channing Tatum.
The two dated on and off from 2018 to 2019, and briefly reunited in January 2020 before calling it quits for good in April of that same year.
Congrats to Jessie!
