Congratulations are in order for Britney Spears and Sam Asghari, who are now expecting a baby, according to Spears’ recent Instagram post.
The pop star announced she is pregnant along with a photo of a teacup and flowers. Spears revealed that she initially thought she was gaining weight after her trip to Maui but a pregnancy test confirmed that she is expecting her third child soon.
Spears was finally freed from her conservatorship that had ruled her life for 13 years last November and had gotten engaged to Asghari in September. Following her conservatorship hearing, the singer had expressed how much she would like to have a child with Asghari so it should come as no surprise that the couple has confirmed that they’re expecting a baby.
In the post, the singer also spoke about suffering from perinatal depression during her first two pregnancies and not knowing what she was actually going through because of the stigma around mental health. “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. Thank Jesus we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved proper secret.”
The pop star also revealed that this time, she would be keeping the pregnancy low-key since she didn’t want the paparazzi to get any “money shots” of her.
The singer concluded the post by declaring that this time she would be doing her yoga in peace. More power to her, we say!
