Last month, Britney Spears announced that she and her partner Sam Asghari were expecting their first child together. Today, the couple released a joint post on Instagram to share a devastating update on their pregnancy. Britney sadly suffered a miscarriage.

“It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy,” the couple’s text-based Instagram post began. “This is a devastating time for any parent. Perhaps we should have waited to announce until we were further along however we were overly excited to share the good news.” Britney’s pregnancy news came months after the popstar’s 13-year-long conservatorship came to an end.

The “Stronger” singer had been open about her desire to have more children following the end of her conservatorship. The mom of two shares two sons with her ex Kevin Federline: Sean Preston and Jayden James.

Britney and Sam shared a hopeful, loving message in the wake of their loss. “Our love for each other is our strength. We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family. We are grateful for all of your support. We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult moment.” Sam also commented on the post writing, “We will have a miracle soon.”

We wish Britney and Sam love and strength during this difficult time.
