The pop superstar, 40, has been a regular on Instagram over the years, keeping her fans updated with her daily antics but shortly after confirming she's pregnant with her third child, she's now planning to step back "for a little while".

However, Britney has now explained she’s going to step away “for a little while” just two weeks after she confirmed she’s pregnant with her third child.

In a post on Instagram on Sunday (24.04.22), she wrote: “I’m going on a social media hiatus for a little while!!! I send my love and God bless you all.”

The message was accompanied by a picture of a baby sitting in a chair wearing sunglasses and hair rollers.

The 'Piece of Me' hitmaker - who already has sons Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden, 15, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, 44 - is expecting baby number three with her fiance Sam Asghari, 28.

She confirmed the pregnancy news earlier in April in a post on Instagram.

Britney wrote: “I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back … I thought ‘Geez … what happened to my stomach ???’

“My husband said ‘No you’re food pregnant silly!’ “So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby… 4 days later I got a little more food pregnant. It’s growing.”

Since the baby news broke, Britney has been keeping fans updated via social media and two weeks ago, she was seen modelling outfits before her pregnancy starts "showing”.

In a post on Instagram, the 'Toxic' star was seen wearing a selection of summer clothes, including a black mini dress with red hearts and a flowery crop top with low-rise jeans.

Alongside the minute-long clip, the pop star wrote in the caption: "So I have to model my clothes now before I really start showing [pregnant emoji] …

“I had to do the flower [pink flower emoji] on my neck like @sarahjessicaparker.”

She added: "I actually do have a small belly here but at least my pants [jeans emoji] Well barely [sweaty face emoji] [shrugging emoji] !!! Psss is anyone curious why I'm 4 sizes smaller by the door.”

The baby news came just months after Britney was released from a conservatorship which controlled her life for more than a decade.

During her fight for freedom, Britney claimed the conservators had denied her the chance to have another baby by forcing her to have a contraceptive implant.
