Britney Spears has apparently announced that she is a married woman while also sharing the happy news that she is expecting her third child.
The pop icon, 40, took to Instagram on Monday night to reveal she’s “having a baby” – referring to fiancé Sam Asghari as her “husband” throughout the happy announcement.
The announcement comes after the singer’s conservatory finally ended in November after 13 years, preventing her from having more children or marrying Sam.
Actor Sam, 28, popped the question last year and the happy couple shared their engagement news on social media in September 2021.
On Monday, mother-to-be Britney announced to her 40.3million followers that she will be welcoming her third child into the world later this year.
“I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back [confused emojis] …I thought “Gosh…what happened to my tummy???” My husband said “No you’re stupid food pregnant!!!” So I took a pregnancy test…and uhhhhh…I’m having a baby,” began her heartwarming update.
This isn’t the first time Britney has referred to her boyfriend as her husband online.
Over the weekend, the Grammy-winning star shared a snap of her partner of six on Instagram, again referring to the personal trainer and actor as her husband in the caption.
When Britney has tied the knot with the handsome actor, it will be her third marriage — having previously walked the aisle with Jason Alexander in Las Vegas in 2004 and her three-year relationship with the father of her two children, dancer Kevin Federline.
Expectant parents Sam and Britney have been a couple since 2016 and were first linked romantically after meeting on the set of the singer’s ‘Slumber Party’ music video.
After the couple announced their engagement last year, Sam’s manager Brandon Cohen also shared a statement saying he was “proud to celebrate and confirm the engagement.”
He said: “The couple today made their long-term relationship official and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love shown towards them.”
Brandon added that the beautiful new ring was designed by New York jeweler Roman Malayev.
“He couldn’t be happier to be involved and create this unique ring,” Brandon continued.
While Britney is already a doting mother to teenage sons Sean, 16, and Jayden, 15, with ex-husband Kevin Federline, Sam will become a father for the first time when the legendary singer gives birth later this year.
The star’s pregnancy announcement comes after the world was shocked to learn last year that she was unable to take control of her own family planning decisions.
In September 2021, Britney told a court how her conservatory prevented her from getting married and removing an IUD (a form of birth control) from her body.
“I want to be able to get married and have a baby,” she told the court. “I was just told in conservatory that I can’t get married or have a baby.”
Less than a year later, it seems like the singer finally got her happy ending.
