Britney Spears has suffered a miscarriage. 

The singer shared the heartbreaking news via social media on Saturday (May 14) writing: 

It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy. 

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. 

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. 

Britney added: 

We are grateful for what we have in the process of expanding our beautiful family 💝

Thank you for your support.

Britney’s fiancé, Sam Asghari, commented on her post writing: 

We will have a miracle soon ❤️

Britney Spears announced she was pregnant with her third child on April 11 and she also opened up about suffering from perinatal depression during her last pregnancy.

Please keep Britney Spears in your prayers during this challenging time.
