The pop superstar, who is engaged to fiance Sam Asghari, announced she suffered a miscarriage with her third child in an emotional Instagram post on Saturday night
Britney Spears has said she’s “not in the mood to be with a lot of people” after announcing her heartbreaking miscarriage.
The pop superstar, 40, announced last month that she is pregnant with her third child – she has two teenage sons, Sean and Jayden, with ex-husband Kevin Federline – and her first with fiancé Sam Asghari.
Their engagement took place last September, just before Britney’s 13-year conservatorship was finally terminated to allow her to get her estate back.
However, on Saturday, she announced she had suffered a miscarriage with an emotional post on Instagram.
It reads: “It is with our deepest sadness we must announce that we have lost our miracle baby in early pregnancy. This is a devastating time for any parent.
“Perhaps we should wait for the announcement until we go further, but we were too excited to share the good news. Our love for each other is our strength.
“We will continue to work to expand our beautiful family. We are grateful for all of your support. We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult time.”
Britney has received loads of support from fans, social media followers and celebrity friends following the joint statement between her and her fiancé.
TV personality Paris Hilton wrote: “I’m so sorry for your loss. Always here for you. Sending you lots of love. Much love to you B.”
On Monday night, the singer posted a meme from the US comedy-drama Sex and the City featuring the character Carrie Bradshaw with smudged eye makeup that reads: “I’m not in the mood to be around with many people.”
Britney related to the post with the caption: “Unfortunately my mood these days… I honestly hope it doesn’t turn into five!!!!”
The “pop princess” was comforted by her 41.2 million followers with messages of support.
One user wrote: “Give yourself some time. You’ve been through a lot of bad things. We love you and we’re mourning you.”
A second said: “It’s okay not to feel 100%, you’ve been through a lot. Take care and send love.”
Another commented: “People overestimate. Enjoy your little family”.
