Britney Spears announces a miscarriage
Eva Deschamps / May 15, 2022
American pop superstar Britney Spears, who revealed a surprise pregnancy last month, announced Saturday that she had suffered a miscarriage, in a message posted on Instagram with her partner Sam Asghari.
It is with the deepest sadness that we have to announce that we lost our miracle baby during pregnancy, says this post from the 40-year-old singer, already a mother of two children, and her partner, 28.
On April 11, the singer, revealed as a teenager by several global hits including ...Baby One More Time in 1998, had written on Instagram: I took a pregnancy test... Uh well... I'm expecting a baby. The news came five months after the U.S. court in Los Angeles (west) had given her back control over her personal life by ending the guardianship exercised mainly by her father Jamie Spears. The measure had been decided in 2008 because of psychological problems of the star, who called it abusive and that, according to her, prevented her from removing her contraceptive IUD despite her desire to have other children. Britney Spears and Sam Asghari, who met in 2016, added that they will continue to try to expand their beautiful family and asked that in the meantime, their privacy be respected at this difficult time.
The singer already has two boys, Sean and Jayden, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline. Sam Asghari, who the singer likes to call her husband, was thrilled with the pregnancy announcement in a separate post: Fatherhood is something I've always hoped for and don't take lightly. This is the most important job I will ever have.
