Britney Spears losses pregnancy in ‘devastating’ miscarriage

Britney Spears has lost her pregnancy to what she described in a social media announcement as a “devastating miscarriage”.

The singer, who announced that she was pregnant shortly after she exited conservatorship, the legal arrangement that gave her father control over many aspects of her life.

The singer told her Instagram followers that she and partner Sam Asghari had “lost our miracle baby”.

According to the BBC, the 40-year-old, who has two teenage sons, previously said she wanted a family with personal trainer Asghari.

“It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy,” she wrote in a post on Saturday.

She continued: “This is a devastating time for any parent.

“Perhaps we should have waited to announce until we were further along, however, we were overly excited to share the good news.

“Our love for each other is our strength. We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family.”

Announcing her pregnancy in April, she said it would probably be “hard” as she had previously experienced perinatal depression – the medical term for depression occurring any time between becoming pregnant to about a year after giving birth.

The singer, who has two children from her marriage to Kevin Federline, said it had been “absolutely horrible” and was rarely talked about in the past.
