Britney Spears Says She Is Pregnant After Controversial Guardianship Ends
Britney Spears announced on Monday that she is expecting her third child, five months after a judge ended the tumultuous guardianship that the pop star claimed prevented her from having more children.
The 40-year-old wrote on Instagram, “I got a pregnancy test… and uhhhhh well… I am having a baby.”
In November, a Los Angeles judge dissolved Spears’ father’s conservatorship, which the singer claimed had prevented her from having a contraceptive IUD removed despite her desire for more children.
Spears’ representatives did not respond to an AFP request for comment right away. “I was like, ‘Geez… what happened to my stomach???'” says the narrator. Spears wrote that her 28-year-old partner Sam Asghari, whom she has begun to refer to as her “husband” online, speculated that she was “food pregnant.” “It’s getting bigger!!! If there are two of them in there, I’m going to lose it “The singer’s comments sparked speculation that she was expecting twins, prompting speculation on the internet.
After a highly public breakdown in 2007, when Spears attacked a paparazzo’s car at a gas station, she was placed under her father Jamie Spears’ conservatorship, which lasted nearly 14 years. Fans had long suspected that the “…Baby One More Time” singer was unhappy with her father as guardian, so she asked a Los Angeles judge to end the legal arrangement that had left her “traumatised” in June 2021.
Her claim that the conservatorship was preventing her from removing a contraceptive IUD, despite her desire to have control over her own birth control method in order to conceive, infuriated reproductive rights groups and her fans, many of whom were already active in the #FreeBritney movement. “I’d like to gradually move forward, and I’d like to have the real deal,” Spears said in a shocking court appearance last summer. “I want to be able to marry and start a family. I don’t get pregnant because I have a (IUD) implanted in my uterus. They don’t want me to have any more children, they say “During the engrossing 20-minute statement, she said.
After her father Jamie Spears was removed from his position as guardian of her finances and estate at a hearing in September, the guardianship was officially ended in November 2021. After documentaries that emphasised the role of the early-2000s celebrity journalism machine in triggering breakdowns and questionable behaviour, she and other turn-of-the-millennium female pop stars have drawn sympathy.
