Jessie J has opened up about her hopes for a miracle baby with Channing Tatum, despite battling infertility for the last five years.

The singer was diagnosed with infertility and told she'd need an immediate hysterectomy, but refused the treatment and chose instead to overhaul her lifestyle and diet.

The 31-year-old believes that her body will one day allow her to conceive naturally, and is doing everything possible to get there.

Speaking to Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden on today's Heart Breakfast show, she got candid about the difficulties she's experienced emotionally;

"I've always been someone that is open and honest. And from a very very young age I've always stood in the middle of my pain and my battles with everything. And I think it's basically made me who I am today and the artist I am and the music I make.

"So four and a half, five years ago I was diagnosed with this disease that, you know is making it harder. I was told I couldn't have children, I don't believe it. I believe in miracles. I haven't given up," she added.

The Voice Kids presenter continued; 

"For the last four years I've changed my diet, I've changed the way I've live, I've done a lot of self-work and just to be open about it and start a conversation that could help someone that doesn't know how to talk about it, and start this conversation.

"Being on the show, I had some people ask me you know 'is it really hard?' and I'm like, 'no'. I love kids and I'm so grateful. Whatever happens will happen. I've had great blessings and success in my life and I believe that balance has to happen for everybody."

Of course, seeing as she's dating actor Channing Tatum, Jessie J has faced many questions over possible baby news with her new boyfriend.

Tatum already has six-year-old daughter Everly with his ex-wife Jenna Dewan, but Jessie hinted that she'd be ready to become a parent alone if he didn't want more kids.

She heavily denied queries over whether the pair have discussed babies yet;

"No, just because he’s Channing Tatum everyone’s kind of sped us up in to this, like, 'are you getting married? Are you doing this?' I mean, I've been in relationships for a lot longer than Chan and I have in the last four, five years but they're not famous so no one really cares."

Jessie continued: "We're having a lovely time. And I'm very, very respectful of his situation and his privacy."

This new revelation comes only a few months after an emotional Jessie told an audience the true meaning behind her song, Four Letter Word;

"I was told 4 years ago I won’t be able to have children. I was also told I would need a hysterectomy immediately and to be put on medication. I refused the hysterectomy and I'm off all medication through natural medicine and diet change.

"I haven't given up hope. I am doing all I can to make it happen the best way my body will allow."

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan are devastated at the death of their beloved dog Lulu.

The former couple announced the heartbreaking development on their respective social media accounts yesterday, revealing that their lovable pet died from cancer.

Dewan shared an older image of Lulu with their five-year-old daughter, Everly, who was clearly very attached to the four-legged family member.

Jenna posted a series of pictures to her Instagram account, captioned;

"To our sweet and fierce Lulu…thank you for being the best dog in the entire world and for fighting cancer for as long as you did. Thank you for your tireless love, protection and humour."

"Thank you for the adventures. Heartbroken doesn’t even come close to how it feels. But you will live on forever in our hearts and our memories…fly sweet angel," she concluded.

"I’ll see you again baby girl. But you’ll always be with me. Always. Thank you Norman Jean Roy for this memory."

The picture shows the actor with Lulu running along the beach, what was a poignant and nostalgic moment for the star.

Those in the entertainment industry have been quick to offer their condolences to the actors, who met initially while filming Step Up, and announced their separation in April.

Paris Hilton commented on Tatum's post; "Sorry for your loss."

Hillary Swank wrote; "Ugghhhh losing a four legged family member is the hardest thing I have ever been through. Bless you both."

RIP Lulu, grieving the loss of a family pet really is heart-breaking.

In case you've been living under a planet-sized rock, you just MIGHT have heard about Channing Tatum and Jessie J's new romance.

The pair appear to be exclusive, with Tatum making numerous appearances at the British singer's gigs, and was present at her London show last night where she emotionally revealed her infertility.

One thing which has been plaguing fans and speculators all over the internet is the uncanny resemblance between Jessie J and Channing Tatum's ex-wife of over ten years: Jenna Dewan.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Life & Style Weekly (@lifeandstyleweekly) on

The actress only just filed for divorce from Tatum last month, after six months of separation, and both actors appear to have well and truly moved on.

It has to be said that Dewan and Jessie J look RIDICULOUSLY alike, leading fans to conclude that Channing Tatum very clearly has a type.

Apart from being startlingly beautiful and both having names which begin with J, Jenna and Jessie both have similar face shapes, skin tones, fierce eyebrows and shoulder-length dark brown hair, so it's hard not to compare them.

After attending the Baby2Baby gala on Sunday night, one of Jenna Dewan's followers commented on her post:

“FIRST OF ALL…whenever I hear of the ‘striking resemblance’ w/ Jessie J and Jenna Dewan my only thoughts are ummmmm no…not even close, and I don't have a horse in the race but gf you are untouchable." 

"Just trying to spread positive vibes, keep doing you…to an absolute outsider from a small town do are doing it seemlessly."

The dancer and actress responded with her own comment on the matter: "Positive vibes all the way." Oh, there was a kiss emoji too, let's not forget that part.

She doesn't seem to be rising to the media frenzy surrounding her ex-husband's love life, or the doppelgänger claims between her and Jessie J.

However, while many assume that Dewan must be finding the media attention surrounding her divorce difficult, Jenna has a romance of her own. 

She has been happily dating Broadway star Steve Kazee for a few months now. We wish both couples all the happiness in the world.

It has been almost seven months since Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan announced they were parting ways.

And now it seems the couple have decided to make their split official.

According to leaked documents obtained by The Blast, Jenna has filed for divorce from her husband.

Both parents agreed on joint custody over their daughter Everly and are settling their negotiations in private.

The mum has also requested spousal support from the Magic Mike star.

When the couple separated in April, they said their decision was mutual and there was no animosity between them.

“There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible.

“We are still a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to Everly.”

And it appears that the couple still has this respectful and loving view towards one another, sorting out their divorce in a civilised way that pleases both parties.

They are continuing to make Everly a priority and continue to put her needs before their own feelings.

Both Jenna and Channing have reportedly been dating others and are okay with the news of their former partner moving on.

They remain “best friends” who are happy for one another.

Recording Academy president Neil Portnow ruffled a few feathers earlier this week, when he told Variety magazine that women need to 'step up' in order to gain recognition in the music industry. 

The industry big wig suggested that women do not receive their due recognition due to a lack of effort, rather than a systematic preference and acceptance of creative male artists. 

'I think it has to begin with women who have the creativity in their hearts and souls—who want to be musicians, who want to be engineers, who want to be producers, who want to be part of the industry on the executive level—to step up,' he said. 

This statement was met with raised eyebrows and major criticism.

Recording artist P!nk, who has been in the industry for over twenty years, penned a note to the Recording Academy president detailing her thoughts on the matter. 

'Women in music don’t need to ‘step up’—women have been stepping since the beginning of time,' she wrote. 

 

A post shared by P!NK (@pink) on

'Stepping up, and also stepping aside. Women OWNED music this year. They’ve been KILLING IT. And every year before this.'

'When we celebrate and honour the talent and accomplishments of women, and how much women STEP UP every year, and how much women STEP UP every year, against all odds, we show the next generation of women and girls and boys and men what it means to be equal, and what it looks like to be fair,' she finished. 

Mic drop would have been a suitable addition to the end of that note, we think.

Can you believe it's been 12 years since Step Up first debuted?

And for most of us, that movie was the introduction of Channing Tatum (anyone remember those cut-put magazine pictures of him that you'd stick up on your locker in school? Just me?).

Anyway, during the opening night of Magic Mike Live in Las Vegas, Channing and his Step Up co-star and wife, Jenna Dewan, told E! News that a reunion is on the cards.

"It's almost a probability," Channing said. "It's not even a chance it [won't happen]. It's just about when I can actually get a chance to get in shape to do it."

If all he needs to do is get in shape for the reunion, it could be happening sooner than we think.
