Earlier this week, Britney Spears announced on her Instagram that she is pregnant with her third child, just six months after the end of her 13-year conservatorship in which she was forced to have an IUD.
In her post, the pop star said that she and partner Sam Asghari originally thought that the added weight was a food baby—only for her to take a pregnancy test and discover that she was pregnant for real!
“I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️ … I thought ‘Geez … what happened to my stomach ???’ 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 !!!”
The singer went on to add that she struggled with perinatal depression throughout her first two pregnancies, saying, “I have to say it is absolutely horrible 😔 … 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.”
Asghari posted to his Instagram about his excitement about becoming a father. Britney’s ex-husband Kevin Federline, who shares 16-year-old Sean and 15-year-old Jayden with Britney, congratulated the singer on the news through his attorney, Mark Kaplan, telling NBC, “Kevin is aware of the recent posting by Britney regarding her announced pregnancy and wishes her a happy and healthy pregnancy.”
He went on to say that Federline “congratulates her and Sam Asghari as they go through the excitement of planning parenthood together.”
Justin Timberlake, however, apparently doesn’t share in Federline’s enthusiasm for his ex-girlfriend.
His reaction to the announcement was caught on camera by paparazzi in Beverly Hills on Monday. A cameraman started saying to Timberlake, “Britney Spears just announced that she’s pregnant with her third baby—” but he wasn’t able to finish his question, as Timberlake barked at him, “Stop! Go away!”
The singer then walked away from the paparazzi and up a flight of stairs, dramatically stomping his feet and telling the friend who was with him, “[He] got me stomping my feet.”
