Finally, Britney Spears is living her dream. The celebrity announced that she’s pregnant with her third child at last — years after she was banned from conceiving during stardom.

Pregnant After 13 Years

Britney Spears is pregnant with her third child, and the singer is happily showing off her small baby bump. The 40-year-old recently shared the news on Instagram. “I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back … I thought ‘Geez … what happened to my stomach ???’” she wrote in a caption. “My husband said ‘No you’re food pregnant silly !!!’ So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby… 4 days later I got a little more food pregnant. It’s growing !!! If 2 are in there … I might just lose it.” By “husband,” Spears is referring to her long-time partner Sam Asghari.

Soon after making a few headlines, the star also shared a video of herself wearing crop tops and dresses with the song “All That She Wants” by Ace of Base in the background. Spears showed off her belly and mentioned modeling before it becomes bigger. “So I have to model my clothes now before I really start showing,” the pop icon wrote on Instagram. “I had to do the flower on my neck like @sarahjessicaparker … I actually do have a small belly here but at least my pants fit … Well barely !!! Psss is anyone curious why I’m 4 sizes smaller by the door ???”

Sharing The News

Britney Spears and her children

Spears already has two sons, Sean Preston (16) and Jayden James (15), from her previous marriage with Kevin Federline. Back in 2007, she was put her under her father’s conservatorship, and the singer lost custody of the kids. Now, she’s seeing the boys as much as she can, and the three of them have grown very close. Her sons were even the first to receive the pregnancy news! Per Hollywood Life, they can’t wait to become older brothers to her third child. “Britney’s sons could not be more thrilled right now about her pregnancy,” a source said. “This baby is going to have some awesome big brothers, and Sean and Jayden will most definitely be a part of this child’s life.”

Asghari is also happy about their future kid — in fact, he was the one to reveal his baby-making plans with the singer. He shared a painting of lions on Instagram with a warm caption. “Marriage and kids are a natural part of a strong relationship filled with love and respect,” he wrote. “Fatherhood is something i have always looked forward to and i don’t take lightly. It is the most important job i will ever do.”

But Spears is by far the happiest one. She had to have an IUD, a contraceptive device, for 13 years under her conservatorship. Apart from having children, she was unable to rule her finances and personal desires. “I wanted to take the IUD out so I could start trying to have another baby,” Spears said in 2021. “But this so called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have any more children.” But now, since the conservatorship ended, Spears is able to make her own decisions about her family life and is taking full advantage of it.
