Britney Spears seemed to announce that she's pregnant on Monday… but did she?
The pop star took to Instagram on April 11 to discuss her fluctuating weight. In the process, she appeared to reveal a pregnancy. Then again, maybe it's just a "food baby" as her fiancé, Sam Asghari, initially thought.
"I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back … I thought 'Geez … what happened to my stomach???" she began her Instagram post.
Sam told her she was simply full from a meal, she explained.
"My husband said 'No you're food pregnant silly!!!' So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby," she wrote. (Britney has previously called Sam her husband though it's believed they have not yet legally tied the knot since getting engaged in 2021.) Adding to the confusion, she continued, "4 days later I got a little more food pregnant. It's growing!!!"
The pop star didn't rule out the possibility that she's carrying twins… that is, if she's actually pregnant.
Lending some credence to the pregnancy claim? Brit added that she's planning to hunker down to avoid being photographed by the paparazzi, which many pregnant celebrities do.
The "Toxic" singer then thought back to her pregnancies with sons Sean Preston Federline and Jayden James Federline.
"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," she added. "This time I will be doing yoga every day !!! Spreading lots of joy and love !!!"
After the post surfaced, a few of Britney's famous friends chimed in with congratulatory messages. "Congratulations sis!! I'm so excited for you!!" Paris Hilton commented. "Love you!!!"
Later in the day, Sam, who is very active on social media, finally commented publicly — but it left some fans even more confused as he stopped short of explicitly confirming that Britney is currently pregnant.
"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 wrote on Instagram alongside an illustration of a family of three lions, a nod to his nickname for Britney — "Lioness."
