Britney Spears is pregnant!
The pop star announced she’s expecting her first child with fiancé Sam Asghari in an Instagram post on April 11. Britney noticed she was gaining weight after a recent trip to Maui with the 28-year-old fitness trainer, Britney wrote, “So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby.”
Britney is already mom to sons Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, from her previous marriage to Kevin Federline. She also claimed that she “won’t be going out as much” to avoid paparazzi.
The singer reflected on her past pregnancies, admitting she experienced 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,” she continued, “but now women talk about it everyday … thank Jesus we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved proper secret.”
Britney ended her announcement by saying that she now plans on “doing yoga every day” instead of going out, adding, “Spreading lots of joy and love!!!”
Britney’s conservatorship terminated in November, just weeks after Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, was suspended as her co-conservator following 13 years. In a filing submitted by Jamie’s legal team before the termination of Britney’s conservatorship, his attorneys wrote, “Mr. Spears has always done what he believes was in his daughter’s best interests.”
