Meghan Trainor has told how she believed she was having a miscarriage during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

The singer recalled finding out she was pregnant with her second child, Barry, just before appearing on the hit TV show.

‘That morning I was stoked, beaming with joy, I videotaped it,’ she recalled in a new interview. ‘

‘I did interviews and they were like, “How are you?” and I said, “I’m thriving.” I was so happy.’

She added to Mythical Kitchen’s Last Meals that it was ‘right before her last interview’ that she ‘looked down’ and was ‘gushing blood’ and had ‘ruined a chair’.

‘I go, “Oh no,” and they’re like, “Ok, Ryan Seacrest is on. Go!”‘

‘I did that whole interview like, “Don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry” and then got through it,’ she continued. ‘I shut the computer and was like, “Hey, team, I think I’m miscarrying right now.” I was like, “I had a baby this morning, and now they’re gone”.’

Several pregnancy tests and blood tests all confirmed she was still pregnant. Her son, Barry, was born in July 2023.

In a magical turn of events, he actually arrived on a special date – Meghan and her husband’s seven-year anniversary of their first date.

Meghan, 30, has been married to Daryl Sabara since 2018. Their first child, Riley, three, was born via cesarean section, which caused the All About That Bass singer to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

‘Usually, when you’re being sewn up for 45 minutes, you’re like, “Look at my gorgeous baby. We did it. This is everything.” But I was laying there alone,’ she told People.

‘I couldn’t go to sleep at night. I would be in tears and tell Daryl, “I’m still on that table, dude. I’m trapped there. I can’t remind myself I’m in bed and I’m safe at home”,’ she said. ‘I had to learn how traumatic it was.’

Meghan has spoken about her PTSD before, saying she felt as though she was blamed by some medics after her baby didn’t wake up for several days. 

‘They were like, “Sometimes it happens,” and then some nurses were like, “Well, it’s because you’re on antidepressants,” and I’m like, “Yeah, but I’ve been told by others that it’s not that.”

‘It was just really frustrating not having an answer. Not having answers for why my kid didn’t wake up for a week was very frustrating.’

Meghan continues to speak openly about her mental health, particularly in parenthood, in a bid to help others who are struggling.

‘I’m comfortable telling my truth and talking about my personal things if it helps others, you know?’
