The singer is expecting her third child and we’re pretty excited.
Yes, you definitely read that correctly—Britney Spears is having a baby!
The singer took to Instagram on Monday, April 11, posting an image of a pink tea mug along with a long caption revealing her pregnancy. Spears and her fiancé, Sam Asghari, discovered the exciting news after returning from a recent trip to Maui.
“So I got a pregnancy test…and uhhhhh well…I am having a baby,” Spears writes in her caption. She even hints about the possibility of having twins! “It’s growing!!! If 2 are in there…I might just lose it…”

The pop singer is already a mom of two, with sons Sean, 16, and Jayden, 15, from her marriage to Kevin Federline.
Along with her pregnancy announcement, Spears also discussed the silent struggles she had with her past pregnancies, noting that she’s thankful women can openly talk about perinatal depression today. “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…” she writes in her caption. “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!!!”
It’s been a big year for Spears. Back in September 2021, Spears announced her engagement to Asghari on Instagram. Two months later, in November, it was announced that the 13-year conservatorship that she’d been living under had finally ended.
We hope Britney gets the pregnancy and postpartum she deserves this time, after having such a tough go with her first two kids. It can’t be fun going through such a life-changing time while being stalked by the paparazzi and relentlessly criticized by the bloggers and the media.
We’re overjoyed with this wonderful news. Congrats, Britney!
