Britney Spears and Sam Asghari are continuing to cope with the loss of their unborn child and asking fans for privacy.

On his Instagram Story last night, the model and actor shared a message for friends and fans who have been asking about their well-being after Spears suffered a miscarriage.

“We have felt your support. We are taking things positively and moving forward with our future. It’s hard but we are not alone,” Asghari wrote.

“Thank you for respecting our privacy. We will be expanding our family soon,” he added.

Spears also shared an update on her current state of mind, posting a Sex and the City meme of Carrie Bradshaw saying, “I am not in the mood to be with a bunch of people.” Spears wrote in the caption, “Unfortunately my mood these days … I honestly hope it doesn’t turn into years ? !!!!”

The couple shared the news they were expecting their first child together on April 11. At the time, the “Oops!… I Did It Again” singer wrote in an Instagram post, “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.”

Spears—who is already mom to sons Sean and Jayden Federline, from her marriage to Kevin Federline—then continued to share thoughts about her pregnancy on Instagram, voicing her excitement about welcoming a child with Asghari.

But this weekend, the two announced the sad news that they lost their baby. “It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy. This is a devastating time for any parent. Perhaps we should have waited to announce until we were further along. However we were overly excited to share the good news,” they wrote in a joint statement shared on both of their accounts.

Spears wrote in the caption, “We are grateful for what we have in the process of expanding our beautiful family ? Thank you for your support.”

Asghari wrote in the comments, “We will have a miracle soon ❤️.”

Spears and Asghari, who got engaged in September 2021, are set to become husband and wife very soon.
