Britney Spears surprised fans when she said on Instagram on Monday (April 11) that she’s having a baby, but some might have noticed another possible update from the “Baby… One More Time” icon… Rather than referring to Sam Asghari as her fiancé, Spears referred to “my husband.”
It remains unclear whether Spears, 40, and Asghari, 28, have secretly tied the knot. The pair got engaged in September 2021. She took to Instagram at the time to show off the stunning ring, gushing “I cant f***ing believe it” and adding several diamond ring emojis to the ecstatic post.
In her latest Instagram post on Monday, Spears reflected on losing weight on a trip to Maui, “only to gain it back.” Asghari — referred to as Spears’ “husband” — apparently suggested the pop star was “food pregnant.” But a pregnancy test revealed “I am having a baby,” Spears wrote. “Spreading lots of joy and love 💕 !!!”
Returning from her Hawaii trip in January, Spears revealed on Instagram that she had a “horrible” stomach bug and compared it to nausea during pregnancy. She said, in part: “I think I have a small bug … the only thing that is similar to this feeling is when I was pregnant...it’s the nausea that is the worst … It’s like I can’t wake up so I go to the gym trying to wake my system up !!! It’s like clockwork. I break my first sweat then I go to the bathroom and throw up.”
This will be the first child between Spears and Asghari, and the iconic artist’s third child, joining her two teenaged sons she shares with ex-husband Kevin Federline, 44. See Spears’ latest Instagram post here:
