Singer Christina Perri pregnant again two years after miscarriage ‘heartbreak’

American singer Christina Perri has announced that she is pregnant again two years after a “heartbreaking” miscarriage.

erri, who is best known for hits like Jar Of Hearts and A Thousand Years, shared the news on social media Monday, saying she and her family were “very excited.”

“Rosie sent Carmella a sister and we are very excited,” the 35-year-old captioned a video in which her daughter opens a box with photos of her pregnancy scans.

“We’ve had all the feelings, but above all try to choose joy every day.”

The video showed Perri and husband Paul Costabile laughing and laughing with their young daughter, who would say “I love you mom” at the end.

In January 2020, she revealed that she had miscarried at 11 weeks and was a week away from telling her loved ones about the pregnancy.

“We are shocked and heartbroken,” she said at the time.

“We were only 1 week away from sharing the news, so I think it’s important to share this news as well. I want to continue to help change the story & stigma surrounding miscarriage, secrecy and shame.”

Perri said she is “so sad but not ashamed”, adding: “I am ever reminded of how wonderful and powerful women are in making life and in healing.”

She ended her message with the words: “I am so sad but not discouraged. When the time is right we will try again, but today we mourn our lost life.”

Perri tied the knot with Costabile in December 2017 and the couple welcomed their daughter, Carmella Stanley, in January.

She first rose to fame after her single Jar Of Hearts appeared on the reality show So You Think You Can Dance in 2010.

It became a hit on both sides of the Atlantic. Perri is also known for the song A Thousand Years, which was featured on the soundtrack of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.
