‘I have to put my baby’s health first’: Joss Stone announced that she has postponed tour dates after revealing she’s pregnant – six months after suffering a devastating miscarriage
Taking to Instagram, she penned: ‘I’m fortunate enough to announce that Cody and I are expecting our second child together. I’m over the moon for Violet to have a younger sibling.
‘This does mean, however, I’m devastated to announce that unfortunately I have to change some of my touring plans.
‘Thank you for all your support and I’m so sorry if I’ve let anyone down, I have mixed emotions as I would love to perform for all of you but I have to put my health, my baby’s health and my family first… please check my website for the most up to date information.’
She added in the clip: It’s annoying I know as we’ve had to do that over the last two years for other reasons. But we have to do it again only on a few… but it’s all for a good reason so hopefully it will be ok. Cheers guys.’

The post comes after Joss took to social media on Monday, where she announced that she’s expecting a child in an emotional 8 minute-long video filmed in her car.
Joss broke down in tears as she also revealed that she endured a miscarriage in October 2021, but concluded: ‘There are rainbows after storms.’
The Masked Singer winner welcomed her first child, Violet Melissa, in January last year with boyfriend Cody.
Beginning the clip, Joss explained: ‘I have a bit of an announcement to make, which is kind of mixed. It’s beautiful and not at the same time. In one sense it’s completely beautiful, but the story that comes first is not.’
The singer explained that she was going to have to move performance dates, which is why she was going into detail about what’s been going on in her life.
Joss continued: ‘Last year, in October, I lost a baby. And it was really horrible, because it was my baby. And I know that a lot of women go through that,’ said the singer, as she broke down.
‘It was hard, it was just not very nice. So I went to the doctor and I said to him “why, why has this happened?” and he said: “We don’t know why, Joss, these things just happen just by the luck of the gods. It’s not your fault.”

She explained she pressed him for an answer why, and recalled: ‘He goes “well, maybe now your baby is an angel watching over you.”
‘And I went “nope, the baby is too small to be an angel. It shouldn’t be an angel, it should be looked after by me”.’
Joss then told her followers: ‘I’m telling you this story, because I want everyone to understand my next moves and the heart behind it. And he was right, we shouldn’t feel alone, it happens to a lot of women.’
She added: ‘It’s sh**ty, it’s a horrible, horrible thing. And it’s not something that you can get over. It’s something that you have to live with.’

‘He said to me, “come back in Spring and we’ll do a well woman check and make sure you’re all good and go from there”, so I said: “Okay doc, I will see you when the daffodils bloom” and this is what happened…’
Joss then shared a clip of herself walking through daffodils and holding up a positive pregnancy test.
‘So, that’s the beautiful part of the story, is that there are rainbows after storms, and it’s just lovely and I’m very excited. I can’t wait to meet my baby.
‘And I hope and pray that everything’s okay. And I’m just, I’m very excited to announce it but I didn’t want to not acknowledge my baby before.’
What happened next: Joss recalled her doctor told her to come back in Spring for a well woman check, to which she said: “Okay doc, I will see you when the daffodils bloom”

Joss then held up the scan of the baby which she lost, pointing out how ‘tiny he was’ and the scan of the baby she’s currently pregnant with.
She said: ‘he’s a bit bigger’ before explaining that she went for a later scan because she didn’t want to ‘jinx’ anything.
‘Ahh life, doesn’t it give us all sorts of different things to deal with. And we can, we can deal with the good bits and the bad bits. And we can get through it, and loveliness will come. It will come.’
She later added: ‘Any prayers and well wishes and any good thoughts that you can just send out there are welcomed in this family. We’re very excited.’

Joss then explained that she would be announcing which dates she can play, as she balances her workload to be healthy and ‘give her body a chance.’
She concluded by saying: ‘I hope that this hasn’t depressed you or anything. I hope that you see the positive.
‘I like to bring good news. That’s why I haven’t really said anything before about the other thing, because that was just bad news. And now it’s a combination.
‘And, life is full of different things. It takes all different colours to make a tapestry. And some of those colours are bright and beautiful and some of them are a bit dull and dark, but we need them all.’
‘Bigger!’ Joss then held up the scan of the baby she’s currently pregnant with, adding: ‘he’s a bit bigger’ before explaining she went for a later scan because she didn’t want to ‘jinx’ anything
Joss rose to fame back in late 2003 with her multi-platinum debut album, The Soul Sessions.
She first met her partner Cody during a chance encounter at an airport in Belize, while Joss was on tour and he was working in private security.
The pair went public via Joss’s Instagram in 2020, as Joss posted an ‘accent war’ with her American beau.
They welcomed their first child, daughter Violet Melissa, in January 2021.
