Britney Spears said she had a miscarriage.
Spears announced the news on Instagram on Saturday in a joint post with her partner, Sam Asghari. The pop superstar, who freed her from a court conservatorship that controlled her life for more than a decade, said in april that she was expecting a child with Asghari.
“It is with the deepest sadness that we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in our pregnancy. This is a devastating time for any parent,” the post read. “Perhaps we should have waited to announce until we had moved on, however we were too excited to share the good news.”
“Our love for each other is our strength,” the post read. “We will continue to try to expand our beautiful family.”
Spears, 40, said she longed to have a baby with Asghari, 28, a personal trainer, but also said a nearly 14-year conservatorship that ended last year forced her to stay on birth control.
The two met on the set of their slum party videos in 2016.
Spears also has two grown children with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
