Following Spears' announcement that she and Ashgari are about to welcome their first child together, the paparazzi caught up with Timberlake to learn his thoughts on the news.

The former couple's love story returned to the spotlight when the Princes of Pop shed light on the sexism she suffered post-breakup in her 2021 tell-all film "Framing Britney Spears."

Things went sour between Spears and the "Trolls" actor when he insinuated that her infidelity caused their breakup, leading to severe backlash for her in the industry.

Although Timberlake apologized to his ex about twenty years after the incident, he seems not to be open to sending any congratulations regarding her pregnancy.

The "Alpha Dog" actor waved the videographer off and declared that he wanted an end to the probing yelling, "Stop! Go away."

As Timberlake climbed up the stairs into the building, he could be heard saying to his friend, "[He] got me stomping my feet.’

The Blast shared that Spears, who shares two boys, 16-year-old Sean and 15-year-old Jayden, with ex-husband Kevin Federline, revealed she is expecting her first child with Ashgari.

The "Circus" singer made the shocking announcement on Monday, April 11, via a candid Instagram update that left fans squealing with over 60,000 comments.

Spears' explained in her caption that she noticed she lost weight before she went on a trip to Maui, only to gain back some extra weight upon her return. She wrote:

"I thought, ‘Geez … what happened to my stomach ???’ My husband said, ‘No, you’re food pregnant silly!!!'"

The "Glory" musician decided to take a pregnancy test and realized that she was pregnant. It is too early to know if she is carrying twins, but she noted that if two babies are in her womb, she may just "lose it."

Spears' concluded that she would be going out less during this period, engaging in daily yoga, and spreading love and joy.

The "Palmer" Actor Apologizes To Ex Amid "Framing Britney Spears" Documentary Drama

Timberlake released a public apology to Spears nearly two decades after their breakup when she released her 2021 tell-all documentary. 

The Blast disclosed in February that the "In Time" actor took to his Instagram page with a direct message in the wake of Spears' film. He wrote:

"I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right. I understand that I fell short in these moments and many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism."

Timberlake then directly apologized to the "Inside Out" singer and Janet Jackson, adding that he respects them and knows he failed them. He continued:

"I have not been perfect in navigating all of this throughout my career. I know this apology is a first step and doesn’t absolve the past. I want to take accountability for my own missteps in all of this as well as be part of a world that uplifts and supports."

Despite Timberlake's recent reaction to his paparazzi run-in, he and Spears seem to be on good terms and have "reconnected," according to OK! Magazine.

During the "Everytime" singer's journey towards ending her conservatorship, an insider told the outlet that “Justin has been following Britney’s situation extremely carefully and checked in on her a bunch of times.”

Fans of the exes are happy they have reconnected and are moving on with their lives. Timberlake has been married to Jessica Biel since 2012, and they have two kids together.

On the other hand, Spears is excitedly anticipating the arrival of the newest addition to her family with Ashgari.
