Spears announced her pregnancy in a lengthy Instagram post where she talked about how she lost a lot of weight on her trip to Maui but gained it back very soon after.

The singer assumed she was “food pregnant” and that she was just gaining weight until a pregnancy test confirmed the happy news. 

In her post, Spears also referred to Asghari as her husband which might suggest that the pair secretly got married after their public engagement in September last year.

Spears also went on to discuss that she suffered from depression during one of her previous pregnancies and how she feels women can now discuss their mental health more openly.

“This time I will be doing yoga every day. Spreading lots of joy and love,” she wrote.

This will be Spears’ third child and her first with Asghari. She has two other sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James from her previous marriage to Kevin Federline.

Spears’ upcoming baby is just one of the many exciting celebrity baby announcements that we’ve heard about recently.

1. Grimes and Elon Musk

Singer Grimes and billionaire Elon Musk have revealed that their family has grown and that they welcomed a second baby, Exa Dark Sideræl, via surrogate in December. 

Baby Y, as she is referred to, was revealed to the world when a Vanity Fair reporter visited the singer in her home for an interview and heard the baby crying in an upstairs room. 

“I don’t know. I don’t know what I was thinking,” Grimes told the reporter when asked why she thought she could conceal the baby while a reporter was in her home.

Baby Y was born just a few months after the couple announced that they had split after a three-year relationship together. 

The SpaceX founder confirmed that the pair were “semi-separated” but that they remained on good terms.

However, in the Vanity Fair interview, Grimes said that they were partially back together now.

“I would probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we’re very fluid. We live in separate houses. We’re best friends. We see each other all the time… We just have our own thing going on, and I don’t expect other people to understand it,” she said. 

This is the couple’s second child together after the birth of their first child, X Æ A-XII, in 2020.
