Pop star Britney Spears and her fiance Sam Ashgari are devastated after announcing that they lost their baby in a miscarriage.
"It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy," the 40-year-old singer wrote in a joint-post with Sam.
The singer had announced the pregnancy in an Instagram post on April 11, saying "So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby."
The news had come came five months after a Los Angeles judge dissolved her conservatorship that was long overseen by Spears's father which Spears called the arrangement abusive as she was forced to keep her contraceptive IUD despite her desire for more kids.
In their post Saturday, Spears and Asghari added that they "will continue trying to expand our beautiful family... We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult moment."
