We're sending the couple our warmest and tightest embrace during this tough moment.
On Saturday, Britney Spears confirmed the passing of her “miracle baby” on Instagram, nearly a month after she announced her pregnancy with husband Sam Asghari.
“It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy,” the pop diva and her partner Sam Asghari wrote in a joint statement.
“This is a devastating time for any parent. Perhaps we should have waited to announce until we were further along however we were overly excited to share the good news.”
“Our love for each other is our strength. We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family,” the statement concluded. “We are grateful for all your support. We kindly ask for your privacy during this difficult moment.”
This would have been Spears’ first child with Asghari, as she already has two teenage sons from her previous marriage to musician Kevin Federline, named Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline.
As we previously reported, the “Toxic” singer announced her pregnancy back in April, just six months after a Los Angeles court terminated the disputed conservatorship, which she claimed stopped her from having any more children.
The announcement also comes after the couple confirmed their engagement on social media in September 2021, after four years of dating.
The couple initially met in 2016 on the set of Spear’s single “Slumber Party,” music video when Asghari co-starred with her. She made their relationship official in January 2017 by means of Instagram and they have been together for almost five years.
