Britney Spears says she lost a baby early in her pregnancy.
Spears announced the loss on Instagram Saturday in a joint post with her fiancé, Sam Asghari. The pop superstar, who won her freedom from a legal guardianship that controlled her life for more than a decade, said in April that she was expecting a child with Asghari.
“It is with deep sadness that we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in pregnancy. This is a devastating time for any parent,” the post read.
“Maybe we should have waited to announce until we were more advanced, but we were too excited to share the good news.
“Our love for each other is our strength,” the post said. “We will continue to try to expand our beautiful family.”
Spears, 40, said she was longing for a baby with Asghari, 28, a personal trainer, but also said the nearly 14-year-old conservatorship that a judge ended last year forced her to remain at birth. control.
“I want to be able to get married and have a baby,” she told the court last year. “I was told right now under guardianship that I couldn’t get married or have a baby.”
The two met on the set of her Slumber Party video in 2016.
Spears and Asghari got engaged in September last year, days after her father filed a petition to end the conservatorship. The singer had told the court that she wanted to marry Asghari, but under his guardianship she was not even allowed to drive with him. Spears joked in September that the proposal was “way overdue.”
Spears has two sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
