Britney Spears has revealed that she is expecting her third child. It will be the pop star’s first child with her partner (and possible husband), actor Sam Asghari.
Spears, a prolific Instagrammer, made the announcement on Monday, 11th April. Spears and Asghari recently took a trip to the Hawaiian island of Maui. “I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back,” wrote Spears. “My husband said ‘No you’re food pregnant silly.'” But Spears wasn’t convinced. “So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby,” she wrote.
Spears has two children with her ex-husband, Kevin Federline: the 16-year-old Sean Preston and 15-year-old Jayden James. In the Instagram post, Spears said she experienced perinatal depression during one of her previous pregnancies. “I have to say it is absolutely horrible,” Spears wrote.
She continued, “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 everyday … thank Jesus we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved proper secret.”
Paris Hilton was quick to send her best wishes, commenting, “Congratulations sis!! I’m so excited for you!! Love you!!!”
