Britney Spears has announced the loss of her “miracle baby early in her pregnancy”.
The Toxic singer said it’s a “devastating time for any parent,” but she and partner Sam Asghari will continue trying to “expand our beautiful family.”
The 40-year-old has previously shared that she “wants a family” with the Iranian-born fitness model, 28.
Sharing the news on Instagram, Spears said: “It is with our deepest sadness that we announce that we lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy.
“This is a devastating time for all parents.
“Perhaps we should have waited until we’re further ahead to announce, but we were overly excited to share the good news. Our love for one another is our strength.
“We will continue to try to expand our beautiful family. We are grateful for all of your support.”
Commenting on her post, Asghari said, “We’re about to see a miracle.”

The singer appeared to reveal she was pregnant in April and said she took a test after partner Asghari teased her about being “eating pregnant”.
The couple got engaged in September last year, with Spears joking that the proposal was “way overdue”.
Spears already has two children, Sean and Jayden, with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
A 13-year conservatorship that had controlled Spears’ life was terminated by the Los Angeles Superior Court last November.
She was placed under the complex legal regime in 2008 due to substance abuse and mental health issues, but says it has prevented her from having more children.
