Britney Spears announced on Instagram that she is expecting her third child, the first with her fiancé, Sam.
Britney Spears has taken to Instagram to announce that she is pregnant for the first time in 15 years, and is expecting her first child with long-time partner, Sam Asghari, whom Spears first met on the set of “Slumber Party” music video in 2016.
Fresh from a holiday in Maui, Spears this morning appeared to have killed two birds with one stone revealing that not only is she pregnant, but also cheekily referred to her long-time partner, Sam Asghari, as her husband. The announcement featured Britney’s trademark liberal emoji use while opening up about her past experiences with perinatal depression and having her privacy invaded by paparazzi.
Spears’s pregnancy comes less than a year after a judge ended a 13-year conservatorship that had restricted her life in all areas, making it legally impossible to make her own financial decisions about her Estate, including personal decisions, like preventing Spears to remove her IUD (Intrauterine device) when and if she wanted.
In June 2021, Spears complained in court in her conservatorship case that she had been prevented from marrying or becoming pregnant. Spears told the court she had an IUD that she wanted to remove, but she was not allowed to go to the doctor “because they don’t want me to have children”.
In November, a judge ended her 13-year conservatorship that had allowed her father, Jamie Spears, to control her personal life and $60 million estate.

In what many consider a new era for the singer, Spears has embraced her newfound personal freedoms and has openly shared via social media along with her fiancé, their desire to have a child together.
Spears goes on to say, upon first noticing the changes in her stomach, she dismissed them as weight gain. Sharing she had taken a pregnancy test after her partner, Sam Asghari, had teased her about being “food pregnant”.
“This time I will be doing yoga every day!!! Spreading lots of joy and love!!!” she wrote.
Britney has two children already, Jayden (15) and Sean (16), who she had during her marriage with Kevin Federline, aka K-Fed.
