Stevie Nicks Confirms She Was Once Pregnant With Don Henley’s Baby

She would've named the most '70s MOR-rock baby ever "Sara"

The ’70s nearly had their own Blue Ivy Carter, Stevie Nicks has confirmed. The Fleetwood Mac singer/songwriter recently talked with Billboard about her upcoming 24 Karat Gold LP, and was asked about a comment made by her ex-paramour (and fellow ’70s megastar) Don Henley of the Eagles. Henley had said that Nicks had gotten pregnant with his baby, and that Sara (later the name of a Mac top-ten hit) was the name she had given the unborn child. Nicks corroborated the important part of that story:

Had I married Don and had that baby, and had she been a girl, 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.

The idea of Nicks and Henley  maybe the two most famous members of the two most famous American rock bands of the late ’70s — having a child is kind of a crazy one. It would’ve been a tumultuous upbringing to say the least, but just imagine the smooth, California-inflected and overwhelmingly bitter songwriting DNA that kid would’ve had. John Mayer would kneel in worship, certainly.
