Stevie Nicks reveals song 'Sara' is about her aborted child with Eagles' Don Henley

Published Oct. 1, 2014

There's only one place perfect enough for a baby created by Stevie Nicks and Don Henley, and sadly for us mortals, heaven (if you believe in it) is exactly where that unborn child has been all this time.

Nicks recently opened up about her Fleetwood Mac song Sara, which Eagles frontman Henley claimed was about abortion. Turns out the two were expecting when they dated in the '70s and they decided they weren't ready to be parents.

"Had I married Don and had that baby, and had she been a girl, I would have named her Sara," the Edge of Seventeen singer told Billboard.

But Nicks said she also knew another Sara at the time — the wife of Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood. So, Nicks rates Henley's claim Mostly True.
