mourns his little girl. Christina Perri opened up about her struggle to move on after suffering a pregnancy loss last year.
“My body was really, really crushed,” the 35-year-old singer said Self magazine on Wednesday, November 24 about her grieving process. “One of the hardest parts was having the body after the birth without the baby. It looks like I just had a baby and haven’t had the baby.”
The “Jar of Hearts” musician revealed she would “get mad” as she looked at herself after losing her daughter, Rosie. “It was a reminder, every time, not to have her,” she said.
Pennsylvania native who shares 3-year-old daughter Carmella with her husband Paul Costabile, announced in July 2020 that she was expecting her second child. The news came after Perri had a miscarriage in January of that year.
Unfortunately, during Perri’s third trimester in November 2020, she was hospitalized with pregnancy complications. Two weeks later, she revealed that they lost the baby.
“She was born silent after fighting so hard to get to our world,” Perri wrote a caption of her and Costabile holding the hand of the deceased infant. “She has peace now and will live forever in our hearts.”
A year later, Perri released an album, Songs for Rosie, dedicated to her late daughter, whose name she shared earlier this month via Instagram. The lullaby is the second album of children’s songs she has dropped – the first she made for her first-born child in January 2019.
“I had to integrate the trauma,” the “A Thousand Years” singer said Self. “They say that when someone dies, say their name because you do not want to lose their memory.… That’s also why I made Songs for Rosie. My heart is broken, but I honor her. ”
Perri explained that she has navigated various stages of grief while creating the new album, noting that she has had to heal both physically and emotionally after the stillbirth.
“I had to make it almost my job to heal my body because I had undergone so much, and also my spirit,” she said. “There was not a day that I did not do a healing thing, whether it was yoga, EMDR [eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy], being in the sauna, eating really healthy. ”
The singer recalled doing “a lot of therapy,” including trauma and couples therapy, on her journey back to her full self.
“As I healed from losing her, it felt like I was entering my body for the first time,” Perri explained. “I never think I have taken care of myself as much as I have done this year. I stopped looking in the mirror. I stopped trying to fit into my old clothes. I stopped trying to hide my body. It’s probably the gentlest thing I’ve ever been with myself. ”
The “Distance” singer noted that she barely made the album – which was released on Wednesday, the anniversary of Rosie’s death – but pushed through because she wanted her little one to be a part of her life forever.
“This record means the most to me because it forever carries the narrative – the correct narrative – that she exists,” Perri added. “I have Songs for Carmella, and this is the same album cover. It uses the same font. This is the second volume. Because Rosie is my daughter. And she will remain a part of our family forever. “
