Singer-songwriter Christina Perry shared on social media late Tuesday that, after being hospitalized due to pregnancy complications last week, her child had died.
The “Jar to Heart” and “A Thousand Years” singer said, “She kept quiet after working so hard to make it in our world.” “He is at peace now and will be in our hearts forever.”

A few days after Parry shared on his Instagram story, it was announced that his unborn daughter had a congenital malformation known as jejunal atresia, a rare congenital malformation that causes bowel obstruction.
Perry’s announcement was also made just hours before Megan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, revealed in an op-ed published in the New York Times that she had an abortion in July.
Perry did not reveal what was the exact cause of his daughter’s death.
In January, the singer announced that she had miscarried her 11-week-old baby. According to Mayo Clinic data, about 10 to 20 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage.
At the time of her loss, Perry said she was “shocked and completely heartbroken.”
“I’m very sad, but not ashamed,” she wrote in an Instagram post on January 10, “I want to continue helping change the story and stigma around abortion, privacy and shame.”
Earlier this month, Perry posted pictures of herself on Instagram, saying that her abortion in January changed her mind about shooting a maternity.
“I’m really grateful to be pregnant and thankful to be a woman,” she posted on 9 November. “I’m so blown away by what our bodies can do. I don’t know if I’ll ever get pregnant or not, so this time I’m going to celebrate and honor my pregnancy, my baby and my beautiful body I am. “
