Britney Spears has announced in an Instagram post that she and fiancé Sam Asghari have had a miscarriage.

In the Instagram post, Britney wrote, “We are grateful for what we have in the process of expanding our beautiful family. Thank you for your support.”

In the image itself she shared, “It is with out deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy. This is devastating time for any parent. Perhaps we should have waited to announce until we were further along however we were overly excited to share the good news. our love for each other is our strength. We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family. We are grateful for all of your support. We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult moment.”

The message was signed from “Sam and Britney.”

In April, Britney announced she was pregnant to her fiance, Sam Asghari, in a post to Instagram.

Uploading a photo of some flowers alongside a teacup, Britney shared her exciting development with her fans.

“I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back,” she began.

“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,” she revealed.

“4 days later I got a little more food pregnant,” she added. “If 2 are in there … I might just lose it.”

It’s been publicly known for some time that Britney was hoping for another baby, but was unable to have one while under her conservatorship, which was only removed in 2021.

For 13 years, Britney was controlled by a conservatorship run in part by her father, Jamie Spears, which left her unable to live a normal life.

While giving testimony in court to prove the conservatorship should be removed, Britney detailed her desire to have a baby. However, she claimed she was unable to have a contraceptive IUD removed in order to do so.

“I want to be able to get married and have a baby,” she told the court.

“I was told right now in the conservatorship I am not able to get married or have a baby.

“This so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have children, any more children,” she said of the IUD.

For 13 years, Britney was controlled by a conservatorship and unable to have another baby. The conservatorship was removed in 2021.

Britney got engaged to model and actor Sam Asghari, in September last year, shortly before the termination of the conservatorship.

She referred to Sam as ‘her husband’ in the Instagram caption for the pregnancy announcement. Eagle-eyed fans spotted that Britney had changed ‘fiance’ to ‘HUSBAND’ in a earlier post on April 8: ” Trust me I know the beauty in where I am and it’s much appreciated … so here’s me shooting pics of my HUSBAND 💍 !!!!

The Toxic singer also called him “My husband Sam Asghari” in a post about turtles.

Sam and Britney have been together since 2016, when they met on the set of her music video for the song Slumber Party.

Britney has two sons with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, 16-year-old Sean and 15-year-old Jayden.
