Britney Spears is pregnant!
The 40-year-old pop star confirmed that she and her fiancé Sam Asghari are expecting their first child together. She shared the good news on Instagram on April 11. According to her, she noticed that she was starting to gain weight after their trip to Maui. She wrote, “So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby.”
Britney already shares two sons with her ex, Kevin Federline: Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15. She also mentioned that she won’t be going out as much anymore to avoid the paparazzi from taking her pics. She experienced being in the spotlight and pregnant. She explained, “it’s hard because when I was pregnant I had perinatal depression … I have to say it is absolutely horrible.”
She continued, “women didn’t talk about it back then … some people considered it dangerous if a woman complained like that with a baby inside her, but now women talk about it everyday … thank Jesus we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved proper secret.”
The singer ended her post by saying that she’ll be “doing yoga every day” and added, “Spreading lots of joy and love!!!”
Britney first met Sam almost six years ago on the set of her music video for “Slumber Party”. They started dating after making the video and announced their engagement in September 2021. During his proposal, Sam gave her a 4-carat diamond ring at her home in California.
During her legal battle regarding her conservatorship which lasted for 13 years, Britney shared during her testimony that wants to get married and have another baby but according to her, her conservators were against it and insisted to remove her birth control. She revealed during a hearing in 2021, “I have an [IUD] inside of myself right now so I don’t get pregnant. I deserve to have the same rights as anybody does by having a child, a family, any of those things.”
She finally won the battle in November after her conservatorship was terminated.
Sam has always been by her side, offering his support throughout her conservatorship battle. He’s been a part of the lives of Britney’s sons, too. The couple has been creating milestones together, especially after the termination of her conservatorship.
