Britney Spears is pregnant, the 40-year-old pop star announced on Instagram on Monday.
Spears wrote that shortly after a trip to Maui with her fiancé, Sam Asghari, she started to gain weight.
She wrote, "So I got a pregnancy test, and uhhhhh well, I am having a baby."
The pop star's pregnancy news comes months after a judge ended her 13-year conservatorship after a highly publicized legal battle with Spears' father.
This arrangement meant Spears had minimal control over her life and the decisions she could make, including her career, finances, and health.
In a bombshell testimony last June, she told a Los Angeles Superior Court judge that she wanted to have another baby.
However, she was forced to keep an IUD in place.
Spears is already a mom to two boys: Sean Preston Federline, 16, and Jayden James Federline, 15, from her previous marriage to Kevin Federline.
Spears wrote Monday that she will be spending less time going out to avoid paparazzi and noted that she suffered from perinatal depression during her previous pregnancies.
She finished her post on a positive note, saying, "This time, I will be doing yoga every day! Spreading lots of joy and love !"
