Spears Reveals Pregnancy on Her Web Site

Britney Spears has revealed what might be Hollywood’s worst-kept secret: She’s pregnant. In a posting on her Web site, Spears told fans that she and husband, Kevin Federline, were expecting their first child together. Her publicist, Sonia Muckle, confirmed the singer’s pregnancy Tuesday but refused to provide additional details. “The time has finally come to share our wonderful news that we are expecting our first child together,” the singer said. “There are reports that I was in the hospital this weekend, and Kevin and I just want everyone to know that all is well. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.”

The couple were married in September. Magazines and tabloids have speculated for weeks that Spears, 23, was pregnant, documenting her expanding waistline and fuller figure, but she remained mum on the subject. However, she has previously expressed a desire to start a family. In an interview with People magazine last fall, she said: “I want to be a young mom. I can see us as parents.”

While this will be Spears’ first foray into parenthood, Federline, 27, has two children with his ex-girlfriend, actress Shar Jackson. Spears and Federline met last year when he was a backup dancer on her tour — and Jackson was pregnant with their son.

Heartwarming.

    I heard that she couldn’t house-train her rat-dog. Not a good sign for the baby. Also, she needs to stop chain-smoking…pronto! I wish her well, though.

    Ahh, another thing I can add to the list of things that don’t matter. Their child will probably be president someday.

  3. Anderson says:

    God bless the child …

    This is wonderful. Nobody cares but everyone will talk about it saying they don’t care. And when the moment comes when each of us is about to die–the thought will occur about wasted moments–and guess what?

  5. JBlaze says:

    I wonder how this will affect her younger crowd?

  6. Kathy says:

    Good Luck! hope you can handle the pressure of motherhood…

  7. Susan says:

    I sure hope she’s ready for this…having kids is no joke.

  8. She got into childhood way to quikly, she should of waited at least 3 years so she can have some fun instead of taking care of a child. All I have to say is that I wish you luck.

    What are you all talking about her taking care of the child. She won’t. She will pay someone else to take care of her child for her. She is britney remember??

    I think that Britney is doing what she wants which is wonderful…she wanted to be a young mother and thats what she is doing…who is anyone to say that she wont be a good mother…i say more power to her…

    In this month’s Allure magazine they interviewed her where she denied she was pregnant, and to prove her point she lit up a cigarette. I pray to God that she puts down the smokes while she’s with child. It’s not just her body she’s damaging anymore.

  12. Sarah says:

    I am so happy she is pregnant. I mean she’s wanted a baby for so long. She just needs to settle down and stop smoking!
