Britney Spears‘ latest Instagram post about being “pregnant” has left fans confused.
On Monday, the 40-year-old pop princess posted a photo of a pink tea set and matching flowers to her Instagram page along with a lengthy caption about her latest vacation to Maui. “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,” Spears wrote, “and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby 👶🏼 …”
The star went on to say, “4 days later I got a little more food pregnant 🤰🏼🙈🙈🙈 It’s growing !!! If 2 are in there … I might just loose [sic] it 😬😬😬😬😬😬,” continued Spears. I obviously won’t be going out as much due to the paps getting their money shot of me like they unfortunately already have … it’s hard because when I was pregnant I had perinatal depression … 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 … thank Jesus we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved proper secret.”
Leaving fans even more confused, Spears concluded writing, “This time I will be doing yoga every day !!! Spreading lots of joy and love.”
The “Oops!… I Did It Again” singer — who’s engaged to Sam Asghari, 28 — left fans in a tizzy with the post’s wording, as many wondered if it served as a pregnancy announcement.
Her fiancé Sam Asghari later took to social media to celebrate the news with his followers.
“Marriage and kids are a natural part of a strong relationship filled with love and respect. Fatherhood is something i have always looked forward to and i don’t take lightly. It is the most important job i will ever do🙏” he captioned a painting of a lion family.
Upon Britney Spears’ Instagram announcement about being pregnant, many congratulated the couple.
Congratulations sis!! 🥳 I’m so excited for you!!😍 Love you!!!🥰,” Paris Hilton wrote in the comments.
Others who weren’t so sure wrote: “I’m so confused… are you pregnant or not?!” wrote one fan. Added another: “Congratulations! I’m not sure if it is a food baby or a person baby, but either way yay!!!!!!!”
Britney Spears shares two children, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
During her June 2021 court hearing in which she broke her silence on her 13-year conservatorship, which was officially dissolved in November 2021, the pop star spoke about her desire to have a third child and claimed she had an IUD that her conservators wouldn’t allow her to remove.
“I want to get married and have a baby,” she told the court. “I wanted to take the IUD out and have a baby but the conservator won’t let me because they don’t want me to have a baby.”
Spears announced her engagement to actor Sam Asghari in September 2021.
