“With deep sadness we must report that we lost our miraculous child in early pregnancy. This is a devastating time for any parent, ”the statement reads. “Maybe we should have waited to announce until we moved on, but we were too excited to share the good news.”

Spears, 40, said she longed for a child from 28-year-old Asgari, a personal trainer, but also said the nearly 14-year-old care, which ended last year, forced her to stay on birth control.
“I deserve the same rights as anyone who gives birth to a child, a family, any of it,” Spears said in a conversation found in an leaked audio recording of her preservation, verified by NPR.
Spears and Asgari first met on the set of her 2016 video “Slumber Party”.
Spears has two sons by ex-husband Kevin Federline.
