Britney Spears announced via Instagram on April 11 that she’s expecting her third child, her first with fiancé Sam Asghari. In her caption, Spears also hinted she and Asghari may have gotten secretly married, referring to him as her “husband.” The 40-year-old Spears said in her post: “I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back … I thought “Geez … what happened to my stomach ???” My husband said “No you’re food pregnant silly !!!” So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby … 4 days later I got a little more food pregnant. It’s growing !!! If 2 are in there … I might just loose it … I obviously won’t be going out as much due to the paps getting their money shot of me like they unfortunately already have … it’s hard because when I was pregnant I had perinatal depression … I have to say it is absolutely horrible … 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 … This time I will be doing yoga every day !!! Spreading lots of joy and love !!!”
Spears has been vocal about her desire to have another child, claiming the rules of her past conservatorship made it unlikely. In a Los Angeles court in June 2021, she said that her father, Jamie Spears, and his team would not allow her to “get married and have a baby” under the conservatorship. After 13 years under the legal guardianship, Spears was officially freed from the conservatorship on November 12, 2021 by Judge Brenda Penny.
Spears first started dating Asghari in 2016, after they met on the set of her “Slumber Party” music video. The couple announced their engagement in September 2021, showed off the singer’s new diamond ring on social media.
