Singer Britney Spears on Saturday posted on her Instagram about the death of her ‘miracle baby,’ about a month after she announced her pregnancy with her husband Sam Asghari. Spears said she was going through a devastating time and perhaps she should have waited to announce her pregnancy.
“It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy,” she wrote in a post on Saturday. She continued: “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.”
Spears, 40, announced her pregnancy and marriage with Asghari, 28, in an April 11 Instagram post. The news was seen by as a “declaration of agency,” as per The New York Times, after being freed from a conservatorship that had governed her life since she was in her 20s.
She had said it would probably be “hard” as she had previously experienced perinatal depression – the medical term for depression occurring any time between becoming pregnant to about a year after giving birth. The singer, who has two children from her marriage to Kevin Federline, Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline, said it had been “absolutely horrible” and was rarely talked about in the past.
