Britney Spears and Sam Asghari Makes Heartbreaking Announcement Regarding Her Pregnancy
“It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy. This is a devastating time for any parent,” Spears and Asghari began their statement.
“Perhaps we should have waited to announce until we were further along. However, we were over-excited to share the good news. Our love for each other is our strength. We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family. We are grateful for all of your support. We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult moment.”
Spears captioned the statement that they “are grateful for what we have in the process of expanding our beautiful family. Thank you for your support.”
Asghari also added a few of his own words in the comments section as well, saying, “We will have a miracle soon.”
As Mamas Uncut reported back on April 11, Spears revealed the moment she first decided she needed to take a pregnancy test. “I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back. I thought, ‘Geez … what happened to my stomach ???’ My husband said, ‘No, you’re food pregnant silly,’” Spears shared in a different Instagram post.
However, as Spears continued, she admitted that she didn’t believe she was just full from a good meal and bought a pregnancy test just to make sure. And as the test had revealed, she was pregnant.
In that same post, Spears admitted she was thankful for the ability to be more open and honest with this pregnancy than she was back when she was pregnant with her two sons, Sean and Jaden. “Thank Jesus, we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved proper secret. This time I will be doing yoga every day !!! Spreading lots of joy and love!!!”
Ever since she first announced her pregnancy, Spears had been very open about the journey on Instagram. Although she refrained from getting too personal, many of her Instagram captions mention her unborn child.
Sam recently revealed that the couple had set a date for their upcoming wedding but that it would remain a secret until after the wedding took place. Our thoughts are with Britney and Sam as they navigate through this difficult time.
