Britney Spears might just be having the best year of her life.
In September 2021, the pop superstar shared the news of her engagement on social media. Flashing her new diamond ring in an Instagram video, the singer wrote, “I can’t f***ing believe it,” followed by diamond ring emojis. The two had been together for five years.
Two months after, in November 2021, a judge officially terminated Britney’s conservatorship, freeing her from a 13-year legal arrangement that prohibited her from having control over her life. All of her affairs, personal and financial, were controlled by her father, Jamie Spears.
And now, Britney has announced another significant life event: She is having her first child with fiancé Sam Asghari.
She made the announcement on Instagram. Together with a photo of a cup of tea and some flowers, Britney wrote a lengthy post:

The post reads:
“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.
Four days later I got a little more food pregnant. It’s growing! If two are in there…I might just lose it. I obviously won’t be going out as much due to the paps getting their money shot of me like they unfortunately already have. 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. This time I will be doing yoga every day! Spreading lots of joy and love!”
This will be Britney’s third child. She has two sons, 15 and 16 years of age, from her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
