Britney Spears has revealed that she is pregnant. This will be her third child and first with her fiancé Sam Asghari. She announced her pregnancy yesterday in classic Spears fashion: a lengthy and emoji-strewn Instagram caption that seemed to show the pop star was excited and appropriately nervous for the experience.

She apparently first noticed a baby bump after taking a trip to Hawaii, and wrote, “I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back… I thought ‘Geez … what happened to my stomach ??? My husband said ‘No you’re food pregnant silly!’ So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhh well … I am having a baby.” While all the ellipses may communicate more hesitance, this is Spears’ signature style and anyone would have some jitters at the start of a pregnancy.

Spears’ announcement also mentioned that she would be avoiding public appearances much more, and revealed that in the past she has suffered perinatal depression when she had her first pregnancies. Spears has two children already, Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline.

“It’s hard because when I was pregnant I had perinatal depression,” Spears said. “Women didn’t talk about it back then … some people considered it dangerous if a woman complained like that with a baby inside her.” Spears expressed gratitude that in today’s climate “we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved and proper secret.”

This is some very positive news in the Spears family amidst the occasional bursts of drama that happen between Britney, her father who was recently removed as her conservator, and sister Jamie Lynn Spears who feuded with the pop star while promoting her memoir.
