Over the weekend, Britney Spears shared the tragic news of her miscarriage on Instagram. “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,” Spears said.

Several celebrities sent their support to the singer in the comments section. Hotel heiress and reality TV star Paris Hilton said, “I’m so sorry for your loss sis. Always here for you. Sending you so much love. Love you lots B."

Everyday moms also shared their appreciation for Spears speaking out about her miscarriage. Nurse and mother Amand Quig commented, “​I’m thankful you announced. There is a stigma with announcing too early, and then with miscarriage, you have to be quiet. By doing this, you’re allowing space for others to heal just like you. The more we speak about it, the more we all know we experience it together. I’m sorry for your loss.”

Despite the heartbreaking news, Spears is staying positive and united with her partner Sam Asghari. “Our love for each other is our strength. We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family,” Spears said, with Asghari adding, “We will have a miracle soon.”

Both Spears and Asghari expressed their thanks to friends, family and fans in the caption, saying, “We are grateful for what we have in the process of expanding our beautiful family. Thank you for your support.”

Spears, 40, announced her pregnancy just over a month ago on her Instagram with a post of a pink teacup alongside pink flowers. The singer had been vocal about her wish to have a child after being released from her conservatorship in November 2021.
