Barely a few weeks after sharing the news of her pregnancy, American singer and songwriter, Britney Spears has revealed that she has suffered a miscarriage.
Britney Spears announced last month that she and fiancé Sam Asghari are expecting their first child together, and her third baby.
“I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back … I thought ‘Geez … what happened to my stomach ???’ My husband said ‘No you’re food pregnant silly !!!’ So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby”, she announced excitedly.
Weeks after her big announcement, Britney shared the heartbreaking news that she lost the pregnancy in a miscarriage.
“It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy.
This is a devastating time for any parent. Perhaps we should have waited to announce until we were further along however we were overly excited to share the good news.
Our love for each other is our strength. We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family. We are grateful for all your support. We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult moment”, she wrote on Instagram.
Sam commented on Britney’s post, “We will have a miracle soon.”
Celebrities, fans, and social media followers from all over the world sent their condolences to the couple.
Paris Hilton was among the first to send condolences to the singer, writing in the comments: “I’m so sorry for your loss sis. Always here for you. Sending you so much love. Love you lots B.”
Television screenwriter Marlene King wrote: “So sorry for your loss. Sending love.”
Love Island host Laura Whitmore hinted she was keeping Britney in her thoughts as she replied to her update with a simple red heart emoji.
And American actress Gabrielle Union-Wade left a similar message – with a string of red heart emojis left in a comment.
A fan wrote, “It’s better to be said and be supported rather than keeping it a secret and going through it all alone. Sorry for your loss.”
And another typed: “Sending love, light, and strength to you both.”
While another replied, writing: “After everything you have been through already this is so unfair. So sorry Britney.
