Stevie Nicks has confirmed that she was once pregnant with Don Henley’s child.
In an interview with Billboard, Rob Tannenbaum asked Nicks if it were true that Henley once got her pregnant and that they planned on naming the baby Sara, later the subject of one of Nicks’ biggest hits.
“Had I married Don and had that baby, and had she been a girl, I would have named her Sara,” Nicks said. “But there was another woman in my life named Sara, who shortly after that became Mick’s wife, Sara Fleetwood”.
When questioned further to confirm the accuracy of the statement, Nicks replied “Right. It’s accurate, but not the entirety of it”.
Tannenbaum also asked Nicks why she has not written her memoir. “Because I wouldn’t be able to tell the whole truth. The world is not ready for my memoir, I guarantee you. All of the men I hung out with are on their third wives by now, and the wives are all under 30. If I were to write what really happened between 1972 and now, a lot of people would be very angry with me,” she answered.
She did say however that she will write it when everyone is too old to care. “I won’t write a book until everybody is so old that they no longer care. Like, “I’m 90, I don’t care what you write about me.”
Stevie Nicks released her new album ’24 Karat Gold’ this week through Warner Music.
