Britney Spears has lost her “miracle baby.”
The singer, 40, announced in a joint statement with fiancé Sam Asghari via Instagram on Saturday that she suffered a miscarriage.
“It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy,” the statement read.
“This is a devastating time for any parent. Perhaps we should have waited to announce until we were further along. However we were overly excited to share the good news.”
Spears and Asghari, 28, added that their love for each other is their “strength” right now.
“We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family,” they continued. “We are grateful for all of your support. We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult moment.”
The post, signed “Sam & Britney,” also included a caption which read, “We are grateful for what we have in the process of expanding our beautiful family 💝 Thank you for your support.”
