Britney Spears is taking a break from her social media “for a while” — not long after she shared her pregnancy announcement.
The 40-year-old singer explained that she will not be active on Instagram or any other platform for the next few weeks as she is taking a break.
She is expecting her third child this year – her first with fiancé Sam Asghari.
Britney has two sons – Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15 – from her previous marriage to Kevin Federline.
It’s not uncommon for Britney to disappear off the face of the earth after sharing big news — as she did in September when Sam proposed to her.

She briefly deleted her own Instagram page after telling her followers she was getting married.
At the time, Britney explained she was taking “time off” to celebrate her engagement.
Earlier this week, the beaming mother-to-be opened up about having another baby and how special the moment is for her.
Britney said, “I really like holding this precious miracle inside me… I just want time to stop and hold it here for eternity… The stillness of holding something so sacred and beautiful inside makes me feel to be more blessed than anything.”
The Toxic singer recently had fans guessing the sex of her baby when she shared a post of herself rolling on the beach in the Mexican heat.
Fans were quick to flood the comments with the first not to beat around the bush, writing, “It’s definitely a girl.”
Many more agreed as they shared her love of the “beautiful” image, and some urged Britney to remember that she is “beautiful” as well.
Britney had often said in the past that she hoped to have another child, but during her 13-year conservatoire she was tasked with maintaining contraception by her father Jamie Spears, who chaired until his engagement last year finished.
She has also spoken out about the “absolutely horrible” perinatal depression she suffered from while previously pregnant.
Britney wrote: “Women didn’t talk about it back then…some people thought it was dangerous for a woman with a baby inside her to complain like that.
“But now women talk about it every day … Thank God we don’t have to keep this pain a secret.”
