Can the universe just give her a break already? With everything that she’s gone through these last 14 years, you’d think that Britney Spears would have at least a little luck on her side, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. The chart topper has revealed that she has miscarried her baby.
She announced back in April that she was expecting her first child with her fiancé Sam Asghari. She already has two sons – Sean Preston and Jayden James – with her ex, Kevin Federline. Here’s what you need to know.
Britney Spears Shares Devastating Personal News With Her Fans
In an Instagram post on Saturday, Spears and partner Sam Asghari spoke of their “deep sadness”, saying “this is a devastating time for any parent.” However, the couple also added that they would keep trying to “expand their beautiful family.” Below the couple’s post, published on Spears’ individual Instagram page, Sami commented: “We will have a miracle soon.”
The pregnancy news came after a 13-year conservatorship, which had controlled Spears’ life, was terminated by Los Angeles Superior Court in November. She was placed under the complex legal arrangement in 2008 amid substance abuse and mental health issues, but said it had prevented her having more children.
In her pregnancy announcement, Britney opened up about suffering with her depression for the first time. The singer, who is expecting her third child with her fiancé Sam Asgahi (it will be his first), posted, “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 every day.”
This all comes after Britney admitted that she is writing a tell-all memoir. Last month Britney confirmed she is writing a book about her life, and said the process has been “healing and therapeutic.” It was reported the singer had landed the book deal a month ago and Spears confirmed it on Instagram, saying there were parts of her life she had never been able to talk openly about before.
