The 44-year-old former dancer - who the ‘Toxic’ hitmaker was married to from 2005 to 2007, and has sons Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden, 15, with - hopes the 40-year-old pop star has a “happy, healthy pregnancy” after she revealed she and Sam Asghari are expecting a bundle of joy on Monday (11.04.22) via an Instagram post.
Mark Vincent, Kevin’s lawyer, told 'NBC News': “Kevin is aware of Britney’s Instagram post. He wishes her the best for a happy, healthy pregnancy and congratulates her and Sam Asghari as they plan for the excitement of parenthood together.”
Britney - who was released from a controversial conservatorship five months ago, which gave her father Jamie Spears control over her healthcare, financial and professional decisions for almost 14 years - shared that she thought she was having a “food baby” before finding out she was with child.
Sam - who is rumoured to have married the ‘Piece of Me’ hitmaker and is a first-time father-to-be - called parenthood “the most important job" he’ll ever have.
The 28-year-old fitness professional wrote on Instagram: "Marriage and kids are a natural part of a strong relationship filled with love and respect. Fatherhood is something I have always looked forward to and I don't take lightly. It is the most important job I will ever do."
The couple have been inundated with well-wishes.
