British garage star Ms Dynamite was so terrified of suffering a miscarriage while pregnant - she risked her music career and stepped away from the limelight.

The IT TAKES MORE hitmaker knew of the pain involved in failed pregnancies, her own mother suffered five miscarriages, and she was determined not to experience the same trauma.

Ms Dynamite - whose son SHAVAAR is now two - explains, "That affected me terribly. Seeing her go off to the hospital to give birth, and coming home alone, with no baby.

"When I found out I was pregnant with Shavaar it wasn't a choice for me whether to take time out or not.

"Whatever the consequences, even if the record label had said 'We're dropping you' or no one ever wanted to buy my records again, I would have still done what I did."
