Britney Spears announced on Saturday that she had suffered a miscarriage.
“It is with our greatest sadness that we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy,” the pop singer said in an Instagram post by Spears and her fiancé, Sam Asghari, 28.
The 40-year-old musician said she and Asghari will “keep trying to grow our beautiful family”.
In early April, Spears announced to her Instagram followers that she was pregnant with her third child.
She expressed concern that she had had perinatal depression in the past.
“I have to say it’s absolutely horrible 😔… 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 are talking about it every day…thank goodness we don’t have to keep this pain a secret 🤫 😬😬😬…” she wrote.
Spears and Asghari, 28, got engaged in September after dating for nearly five years.
Spears has two teenage sons, Sean Preston Federline, 16, and Jayden James Federline, 15, from her previous marriage to Kevin Federline.
In her message on Saturday, she said the love between her and Asghari gives her strength, and she asked for privacy “during this difficult time”.
