Britney Spears announced Saturday that she has had a miscarriage, writing in an Instagram post that she and her fiancé Sam Asghari «have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy.»
«This is a devastating time for any parent,» she said.
Spears, 40, announced the pregnancy April 11. In her Instagram post on Saturday, she said «perhaps we should have waited to announce until we were further along however we were overly excited to share the good news.»
She continued: «Our love for each other is our strength. We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family.»
In a comment on Spears’ post, Asghari wrote, «We will have a miracle soon.»
Spears has long expressed her desire to have another baby. She testified in June 2021 that under the terms of her conservatorship, she had not been permitted to remove her intrauterine device, or IUD, a hormonal contraceptive device placed inside the uterus.
«I was told right now in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby,» Spears testified during that hearing, complaining that «this so-called ‘team’ won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have children.»
Spears’ conservatorship ultimately ended in November 2021 after more than 13 years. The singer has two teenage children from her prior marriage to Kevin Federline.
