For pop icon Britney Spears and her fiancé Sam Asghari, 2022 has been a rollercoaster year, and her May 14 Instagram post proved it.


Britney Spears attracted a lot of attention on April 11, 2022, after posting an image of a pink tea set and flowers on Instagram. In the caption, she seemingly announced her pregnancy, but the words she chose were so vague that some fans wondered if she referred to a food baby or a person.

Spears shared nude photos taken before her pregnancy in the following weeks, confusing people even more. Unfortunately, Spears was indeed pregnant, and she lost the baby.

Sam Asghari and Britney Spears took to Instagram on May 14, 2022, to announce that they lost their "miracle baby" early in the pregnancy. They pointed out that it was a "devastating time" for them.

The couple wrote that they probably should have waited for Spears to be further along in the pregnancy to announce it publicly, but they were overly excited and couldn't wait to share the good news.

Although losing a baby is heartbreaking, Asghari and Spears admitted they found strength in their love and would keep trying to have kids together. Their announcement ended by asking people for privacy.

Britney Spears already has two sons, and although she didn't say anything at the time, she confessed that at least one of those pregnancies was challenging.


When the pop icon announced her third pregnancy, she confessed she had previously dealt with perinatal depression, and it was "absolutely horrible."

Spears and Federline got involved in a headline-grabbing legal battle following their 2007 divorce.


Spears added that women didn't talk about it before because complaining while pregnant was considered dangerous. Things changed over time, and now women talk about it "everyday" [sic].

Perinatal depression is a pregnancy complication so common that one in seven women deal with it. The most common symptoms include loss of interest and energy, feelings of worthlessness, fluctuations in sleep or eating patterns, and an overall depressed mood.

The main difference between perinatal depression and the so-called "baby blues" is that the former happens during the pregnancy and the first year after delivery and lasts longer than two weeks. The latter is commonly over in less or around ten days of delivery.



Before Britney Spears started dating Sam Asghari, she was married to singer and former backup dancer Kevin Federline. The former couple welcomed their eldest son, Sean, in September 2005, while their youngest, Jayden, joined the brood in September 2006.

It is essential to point out that Spears and Federline got involved in a headline-grabbing legal battle following their 2007 divorce. The "Baby One More Time" singer even lost custody of her sons.

After a couple of incidents with her kids, Spears was only granted two visits and an overnight stay with them. She then entered a conservatorship with her father, Jamie Spears.

In November 2021, Britney Spears's conservatorship ended after Jamie filed to terminate it. A baby with Sam Asghari would have represented a new beginning, so fans hope she can get pregnant again.
