Britney Spears has announced she has lost her “miracle baby early in pregnancy”.
The Toxic singer said it’s a “devastating time for any parent”, but she and partner Sam Asghari will keep trying to “expand our beautiful family”.
The 40-year-old had previously shared that she “wants a family” with the 28-year-old Iranian fitness model.
Sharing the news on Instagram, Spears said: “It is with our deep sadness that we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in pregnancy.
“This is a devastating time for any parent.
“Maybe we should have waited to announce until we were next, though we were overly excited to share the good news. Our love for each other is our strength.”
“We will continue to try to expand our beautiful family. We are grateful for all your support.”
Commenting on her post, Asgari said: “We’ll have a miracle soon.”

The singer revealed she was pregnant in April, saying she had a test after fellow Asgari teased her about being “food pregnant”.
The couple got engaged in September last year, with Spears jokingly saying the proposal was “overdue.”
Spears already has two children, Sean and Jaden, whom she shares with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
In November last year, the Los Angeles Superior Court terminated the 13-year guardianship that governed Spears’ life.
She was placed under a complicated legal system in 2008 amid substance abuse and mental health issues, but said it had prevented her from having more children.
