Britney Spears, the pop star, has revealed that she is expecting her third child. On Tuesday, the singer, who became engaged to longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari in September, announced the news on Instagram. Britney’s 13-year conservatorship expired in November 2021, and this news comes months later. Britney has two boys with ex-husband Kevin Federline: Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15.

Britney, 40, said she took a pregnancy test after her partner taunted her about being “food pregnant” after she stated her wish to start a family with her boyfriend Sam. “So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby,” she wrote on Twitter.

She added she “won’t be going out as much” to avoid paparazzi, and that the pregnancy would be difficult because she had previously suffered from perinatal depression.

Sam, too, used social media to express his delight at the news. The fitness guru posted an artwork of a lion and a lioness with their baby to his Instagram account. “Marriage and kids are a natural part of a strong relationship filled with love and respect. Fatherhood is something I have always looked forward to and I don’t take it lightly. It is the most important job I will ever do,” the caption read.

Britney and Sam met six years ago on the shoot of her music video for Slumber Party, according to the news. Following the shoot, the two began dating and became engaged in September of last year. In her social media posts, she routinely refers to him as her “husband.”

Britney Spears had stated her desire to marry and have a child during her conservatorship legal struggle last year, but she claimed that her conservators would not allow her to stop using birth control. Jamie Spears, her conservator and father, has claimed that all of his actions were in his daughter’s best interests.
