Stevie Nicks' recent admission comes as quite a shock to some fans.

The Fleetwood Mac singer recently opened up about the group's 1979 song "Sara." Apparently, Nicks wrote the song about her unborn child for Eagles' front-man Don Henley.

So, during a recent interview with Billboard, she took time to address Henley's statement in reference to the song and its symbolic meaning.

"Had I married Don and had that baby, and had she been a girl, I would have named her Sara," Nicks explained. "But there was another woman in my life named Sara, who shortly after that became Mick's wife, Sara Fleetwood."

Nicks reportedly dated Henley in the 1970s. Their brief, whirlwind romance took place after she split from her Fleetwood Mac bandmate Lindsey Buckingham. During their brief affair, Nicks became pregnant, but decided to terminate the pregnancy.

With all of the twists and turns in her life, she was asked why she hasn't opted to pen a memoir. The 66-year-old singer insists the world isn't ready for her story! She also admitted she wants to respect the privacy of all the people who have been a part her life.

"Because I wouldn't be able to tell the whole truth. The world is not ready for my memoir, I guarantee you," Nicks insisted.

"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. It'll happen some day, just not for a very long time. 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.'"
