Britney Spears has revealed that she has suffered a miscarriage. A month after announcing she and fiancé Sam Asghari were expecting their first child together, Spears shared the tragic news on social media in a post signed by both her and Asghari. “It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy,” they wrote. “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.”
They continued: “Our love for each other is our strength. We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family. We are grateful for all your support. We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult moment.”
Spears has two sons, 16-year-old Sean Preston and 15-year-old Jayden James, both with former husband Kevin Federline. She and Asghari have been together since 2016 and the pair announced their engagement last September. This would have been Spears’ first child since being freed from her conservatorship.
“We are grateful for what we have in the process of expanding our beautiful family,” Spears captioned her post on Instagram. In the comments, Asghari wrote, “We will have a miracle soon.”
