Britney Spears and her partner Sam Asghari went to Instagram on May 14 to announce the loss of their unborn child.
In a joint Instagram post, the couple shared a picture with text and shared their grief.
The caption to the post is accompanied by a heart emoji and reads: “We are grateful for what we have in the process of expanding our beautiful family Thank you for your support”
Britney Spears has two children, sons Sean Preston and Jayden James, whom she shares with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
The news of her pregnancy came after a 13-year-old conservatory that had controlled Spears’ life was closed by the Los Angeles Superior Court in November last year.
She was placed during the complicated legal arrangement in 2008 in the middle of substance abuse and mental health problems and said that it had prevented her from having more children.
The couple got engaged in September last year, and Spears joked that the proposal was “very late”.
