Britney Spears Reveals She And Fiance Sam Asghari Are Pregnant, Read Her Announcement

Just when you thought Britney Spears' personal life might start to become slightly less hectic and headline-friendly, now that she's months into her post-conservatorship freedom, the former pop star has unveiled some rather fabulous news: she's pregnant! That's right, Spears shared that she's expecting a bundle of joy with her loving fiancé Sam Asghari, and she was understandably a whirlwind of emotions and emojis and ellipses when sharing the news with fans.

Having just celebrated her 40th birthday in Britney Spears took to her social media platform of choice, Instagram, to spring the surprising update on her millions of fans, first explaining the funny story behind the discovery. 

  • I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ … I thought “Geez … what happened to my stomach ???” My husband said “No you’re food pregnant silly 🤪 !!!” So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby 👶🏼 … 4 days later I got a little more food pregnant 🤰🏼🙈🙈🙈 It’s growing !!! 

Losing one's vacation physique can certainly be a bummer, although it's definitely less disappointing once it becomes clear there's a whole other person growing inside. Gotta love Sam Asghari's attempt to squash any worries by saying she was food pregnant, which doesn't quite seem like hard medical science. But hey, he never claimed to be an OBGYN.

Britney Spears, who has been nothing but thankful to be free from the conservatorship that allegedly kept her from removing her IUD, as a means to stop her from getting pregnant. Awesomely enough, she didn't have to wait too long after regaining her freedom before biology did its thing. Unfortunately, the celeb doesn't feel comfortable going out in public at this point, and claims that at least one paparazzi photographer has already taken a pic of her in bloom, as it were. But that doesn't mean she won't continue updating fans on IG, and we can probably expect to see some of her yoga routines in the coming months.

Check out Britney Spears' full post below, which is as candid as everything else we can expect from her at this point.

For what it's worth, Spears' post has caused some confusion amongst fans and commenters, as her "food baby" comments sparked some to believe that she just offered a very flowery way of saying she gained weight. But it seems clear from the context, the pregnancy test, the talk of perinatal depression in her previous pregnancies and more that she is definitely set to have another beh-beh down the line. 

Congratulations to Britney Spears and Sam Asghari on the great news, and here's hoping everything goes as smoothly as possible during the next nine months. Which would certainly mean no more feuds with sister Jamie Lynn Spears, and not dealing with any further legal petitions from her mother Lynne Spears.
