Britney Spears and Sam Asghari have lost their first baby together.

Many fans thought Britney had been hinting that she was welcoming a daughter.

Sam Asghari had stated at the end of April that he didn’t want to know the sex until the baby was born.

However, the couple revealed the heartbreaking news on Saturday.

They both shared a joint statement to their Instagram accounts.

“It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy,” they wrote.

They admitted that “perhaps we should have waited to announce until we were further along.”

They continued, “however we were overly excited to share the good news.”

They said that they will “continue trying to expand” their family and asked for privacy during this difficult time.
