Britney Spears and Sam announced that they were expecting their first child together one month ago.
The couple has now posted a joint statement on Instagram confirming that they have 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,” Britney and Sam wrote on May 14. “This is a devastating time for any parent.”
The pair 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
