Britney Spears pregnant with her 3rd child, months after being freed from her father’s control

Singer Britney Spears announced she’s pregnant with her third child by posting to Instagram on Monday.

Spears, 40, not only revealed her pregnancy, but also appeared to announce that she had married fiancé Sam Asghari, 28, calling him her “husband” in the post.

Spears described how she noticed changes in her stomach that she initially dismissed as weight gain.

“So I took a pregnancy test…and well…I’m having a baby,” she posted.

The pop star also shared how she suffered from depression in a previous pregnancy and how she now believes women can discuss their mental health more openly during pregnancy.

“This time I’m going to do yoga every day!!! Spreading lots of joy and love!!!” she wrote.

In June 2021, Spears filed a complaint in court in her conservatorship case that she was prevented from getting married or having other children.

In November, a judge ended his 13-year conservatorship which had allowed her father, Jamie Spears, to control her personal life and her US$60 million estate.

Spears has two sons, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, from her previous marriage to Kevin Federline.
