Britney Spears had a miscarriage.
The singer publicly announced that she and fiance Sam Asghari had a miscarriage in an Instagram post on Saturday. The news comes more than a month after Spears revealed she was pregnant and six months after the singer was released from 13-year management.
“It is with our deepest sadness that we must announce that we have lost our miraculous child during early pregnancy,” Spears wrote. “This is a devastating time for any parent. Maybe we should wait for the announcement until we go further. However, we were overjoyed to share the good news.”
The statement continued, “Our love for each other is our strength,” acknowledging the duo will “continue to strive to expand our beautiful family” before noting that the couple is very grateful for the support and would like privacy at this time.
Spears ended her statement, on behalf of her and Asghari, in the caption of the Instagram post. “We are grateful for what we have in the process of expanding our beautiful family,” she wrote. “Thanks for your support.”
In a response to the announcement, Asghari replied, “We’ll have a miracle soon.”
Spears first announced that she was pregnant with her and Ashghari’s first child on April 11 in an anecdote referring to the couple’s recent Hawaii vacation. Asghari confirmed the news in her own Instagram announcement later that day, writing: “Marriage and kids are a natural part of a strong relationship, filled with love and respect. important. Being a father is something I’ve always looked forward to and I don’t take it lightly. It’s the most important job I’ve ever had.”
Spears and Asghari have been engaged since September 2021. The singer has two sons Jayden and Preston from a relationship with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
