Britney Spears and Sam Asghari announced that they have lost their "miracle baby."
One month after Spears revealed that they were expecting their first child together, the couple posted a joint statement on Instagram confirming that they had lost their little one "early in the pregnancy."
"It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy," Spears and Asghari wrote on May 14. "This is a devastating time for any parent."
The pair, who have previously spoken about wanting to have children together, acknowledged that they perhaps "should have waited to announce until we were further along" in their pregnancy journey.
However, they simply said that they were "overly excited to share the good news" with the rest of the world at the time.
Amidst this incredibly difficult time, Spears and Asghari revealed that they're leaning on one another for support, writing, "Our love for each other is our strength."
The couple, who got engaged last September, also shared that they still hope to "expand our beautiful family" together in the future.
Spears is already mom to two sons, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, who she shares with her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
"We are grateful for all of your support," Spears and Asghari concluded. "We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult moment."
After publishing their statement on Instagram, Asghari commented, "We will have a miracle soon [heart emoji]."
Spears announced that she and her fiancé were expecting their first child together in an April 11 Instagram post. After noticing that she had gained weight following the pair's trip to Maui, Spears revealed, "So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby."
A day after their pregnancy announcement, Asghari told the BBC that he believed the pair should've hit the major relationship milestone a lot sooner.
"I mean this should have happened three years ago, to be honest with you," he told the outlet. "When you're in a relationship with someone that you're truly in love with, you want to re-create, and so this is something I want to do."
Spears voiced similar thoughts during her legal battle to end her 13-year conservatorship last June, when she shared that she had an IUD "inside of myself right now so I don't get pregnant."
She added, "I deserve to have the same rights as anybody does by having a child, a family, any of those things."
In October, a source told E! News that Asghari "one day wants kids of his own with Britney" and shared that he has a "good relationship" with her sons.
The source shared, "Him being a part of her kid's life is a great step in showing Britney what kind of a dad he can be, how loyal and committed he is to being a family man."
