Kentwood (The Times Groupe)- The American singer Britney Spears says she has lost a baby early in her pregnancy.
In a joint Instagram post with her fiance, Sam Asghari, Britney Spears announced the loss. In April, the pop superstar announced that she was expecting her first child with Asghari. She had been under a court conservatorship for over a decade.
“We are deeply saddened to announce the loss of our miracle baby so early in pregnancy. This is a difficult time for any parent,” the post read.
“We probably should have waited to announce until we were further along, but we were overly excited to share the good news.
“Our love for one another is our strength,” the post said. I look forward to continuing to grow our beautiful family.”
Although the 40-year-old Spears longed for a baby with the 28-year-old Asghari, a personal trainer, she also cited the nearly 14-year-long conservatorship that ended last year as forcing her to stay on birth control.
She told the court last year, “I want to get married and have a baby.”. “I was told right now in the conservatorship I cannot marry or have a child.”.
They met on the set of her Slumber Party video in 2016.
Asghari and Spears got engaged in September last year, after her father filed a request to end the conservatorship. She told the court that she wanted to marry Asghari but that under the conservatorship she was not even allowed to drive with him. In September, Spears joked that the proposal was “way overdue”.
Spears has two sons with her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
