Britney Spears is pregnant with her third child

Britney Spears is in luck because, as announced a few hours ago, she is pregnant with her third child. The legendary pop singer confirmed the news via an Instagram post, explaining that she discovered it while she was vacationing in Maui with her fiancé, personal trainer and actor Sam Asghari.

"I lost a ton of weight to go on my trip to Maui, to finally gain it back," she wrote with the help of a bunch of her trademark emojis. "I thought, 'Gosh, what's happening to my belly?' My husband told me: 'You're not pregnant with food, silly!' So I took a pregnancy test…and, well…I'm having a baby!”

The news was greeted with great enthusiasm by her fans, who were aware of Spears's long-standing desire to have a third child (she has two sons, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, with her ex-husband, dancer Kevin Federline). During the legal battle over her own conservatorship last year, from which Spears was ultimately released, the singer gave harrowing testimony in which she referred to the fact that her guardians repeatedly denied her requests to have her IUD removed. to be able to have a child with Asghari, in a chilling indictment of the legal challenges surrounding reproductive rights today.

In her Instagram post, Spears also commented on the stigmas surrounding postpartum depression she suffered during her first two pregnancies, noting that she was glad that "women talk about it every day now," adding, "Thank you. Jesus we don't have to keep that pain a secret.

But most of all, Spears' post has exuded happiness and positivity, in line with the newfound momentum she's found since her 13-year-old guardianship ended in November last year. "This time I will do yoga every day!" She added Spears, before signing the statement with an effusive: "Much joy and love for all." We are sure that her friends and fans will return all that love.
