In a deeply sad Instagram post, Britney Spears announced that she has suffered a miscarriage in the early stages of her pregnancy. “It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy. This is a devastating time for any parent,” she wrote.

“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. We are grateful for all of your support. We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult moment.”

The iconic singer, credited for hits such as ‘Baby One More Time’ and ‘Toxic’, announced on 11 April 2022 that she was expecting her third child with fiancé Sam Asghari. She had her two other boys, Sean, aged six, and Jayden, 15, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline.

What turned out to be a tragic event was supposed to be a positive milestone in the tumultuous life of the pop star. In November 2021, the conservatorship battle she faced against her father, Jamie Spears, was terminated at the request of Judge Brenda Penny. Jamie had been suspended as conservator of her estate the previous September, the same month her long-term boyfriend Asghari popped the all-important question.

Meeting on the set of her ‘Slumber Party’ video, Asghari helped Spears through many tough times and was a crucial shoulder to lean on during the star’s conservatorship battle.

In 2021, Spears claimed she was forced into taking birth-control while under the conservatorship, and prior to its dismissal spoke out about it, saying “I am not happy, I can’t sleep. I’m so angry, it’s insane. And I’m depressed. I am traumatised. I just want my life back.”

This devastating blow, although terrible, has brought forth an overwhelming amount of support for Spears from other celebrities and fans alike—with stars like Paris Hilton commenting, “🥺I’m so sorry for your loss sis.😢 Always here for you. Sending you so much love❤️ Love you lots B💘.” It’s heartwarming to see that whatever happens, the world continues to show endless love for the treasured pop star who’s been through so much already.
