The singer also shared a heartfelt statement about perinatal depression, which she said was not talked about when she was pregnant with her now teenage children.
LOS ANGELES – Britney Spears was released from custody months ago, controlling her life and money for more than 14 years. During her court battle, the singer said guardianship prevented her from marrying her boyfriend and having another baby.
According to a post on Monday on Instagram, those two dreams have come true.
“I lost so much weight on my trip to Maui just to get it back … I thought, ‘Wow … what happened to my stomach?’ Spears wrote on Instagram: “My husband said ‘No, you’re pregnant with food !!!’ So I took a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I’m having a baby. “
She said she wonders “if there are two in there.”
Spears said she doesn’t plan to go out much during her pregnancy for fear the paparazzi will take pictures. Part of her concern is her history of perinatal depression, a mood disorder that can occur during and after pregnancy.
Spears, now the mother of two teenage children from her previous marriage to Kevin Federline, said there was no talk of perinatal depression at the time.
“Some people thought it was dangerous for a woman to complain like that to a baby inside her … but now women talk about it every day … thanks to Jesus, we don’t have to keep that pain a secret,” she wrote.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, perinatal depression could result from a combination of genetic and environmental factors, such as stress and hormonal changes.
“Women are not to blame or blamed for having perinatal depression: it is not caused by anything that a mother has or has not done,” says the institute’s website.
Spears and Sam Asghari were engaged in September, shortly after Spears’ father filed a petition to end the guardianship that had controlled his life for years. Although the singer has not publicly announced a wedding, she has called Asghari to her husband in recent posts.
