Britney Spears fans scream, shout and let it all out over pregnancy reveal: ‘Baby one more time!’
Britney Spears fans across the globe are screaming, shouting and celebrating till the world ends after the pop star announced she is pregnant with her third child.
Taking to – where else? – Instagram, the …Baby One More Time hitmaker revealed that she had been gaining weight and decided to take a pregnancy test.
“So I got a pregnancy test… and uhhhhh well… I am having a baby,” she wrote.
“Obviously won’t be going out as much due to the paps getting their money shot of me like they unfortunately already have…”
As well as teasing a secret marriage to fiancé Sam Asghari – who Spears referred to as ‘husband’ in her Instagram post – she also opened up about her past experiences with perinatal depression.

“I have to say [perinatal depression] is absolutely horrible,” she revealed. “Women didn’t talk about it back then… some people considered it dangerous if a woman complained like that with a baby inside her.
“But now women talk about it everyday… thank Jesus we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved proper secret.”
Britney Spears has two sons, Sean (16) and Jayden (15), who she shares with her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
The pop star met Asghari while filming a music video in 2016 and they soon began dating. However, her controversial conservatorship – from which she was finally freed last year – prevented the pair from marrying or starting a family together.
Fans of the pop star and overall goddess were quick to shower her with love, congratulations and well-wishes – all the fact that she made the announcement 22 years since she first released Oops!… I Did It Again had not gone unnoticed.
One fan summed it up best by writting: “I couldn’t be happier for her, she’s finally getting all the love and happiness she deserves.”

Britney Spears is pregnant, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are getting married, everybody's talking about Holly Valance. If the 2000s are going to continue repeating themselves like this can we skip past the Rebecca Loos tugging off a pig part?

Genuinely happy for Britney Spears.
All she wanted was to live her happy life with a husband and another baby without anybody or anything giving her a hard time.
After all these years, all her dreams have come true❤️
