Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks has confirmed that she was once pregnant with Don Henley's child.

The Eagles singer has said in interviews that Fleetwood Mac song 'Sara' was dedicated "to the spirit of the aborted baby" they conceived together.

In a new interview with Billboard, Nicks confirmed Henley's story. "Had I married Don and had that baby, and had she been a girl," she said, "I would have named her Sara. But there was another woman in my life named Sara, who shortly after that became Mick's wife, Sara Fleetwood."

"It's accurate," she added, referring to Henley's suggestion of the song's meaning, "but not the entirety of it." Nicks wrote the song in 1979, when it appeared on the band's Tusk album.
