Watch: Britney Spears reveals she is pregnant with third child
Britney Spears' ex-partner Kevin Federline and her friend Paris Hilton were among the celebrities to congratulate the star on her pregnancy announcement.
The 40-year-old singer wrote an Instagram post on Monday, revealing that she and fiancé Sam Asghari are expecting their first child together.
Spears already has two sons, Sean and Jayden, with dancer and rapper Federline, born in 2005 and 2006.
Federline's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan gave the star's reaction to Spears' happy news in an interview with NBC, saying: "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.”
Paris Hilton, meanwhile, was among the high-profile stars to comment on Spears' post, writing "congratulations sis" and adding that she was "so excited" for her friend.
Iggy Azalea chipped in with a party hat emoji, while Encanto and Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Stephanie Beatriz referred to her own recent pregnancy as she offered advice to Spears.
Beatriz wrote: "You got this. Talking about how tough pregnancy has become the norm and there are so many helpful podcasts too! Excited for you to be able to experience this pregnancy YOUR way."
Asghari, meanwhile, shared his own response to the news in which he declared that fatherhood is "the most important job I will ever do".
He added: "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."
Spears and personal trainer Asghari met in 2016 when the singer was shooting her music video for the song Slumber Party and began dating shortly afterwards.
The couple announced their engagement in 2021, around the time the singer was formally freed from the involuntary conservatorship that had controlled her career since 2008.
Spears recently revealed that her father Jamie Spears, who served as conservator, earned $36m (£28m) during the course of the 13-year legal arrangement.
