Britney Spears is taking a break from social media.
The pop superstar, 40, has been an Instagram regular over the years, keeping fans up to date with her daily antics, but soon after confirming she’s pregnant with her third child, she’s planning now to take a step back “for a little while”.
However, Britney has now explained that she will be stepping away “for a little while” just two weeks after confirming she is pregnant with her third child.
In an Instagram post on Sunday, she wrote, “I’m going to take a break from social media for a little while!!! Sending my love and God bless you all.
The message was accompanied by a photo of a baby sitting in a chair wearing sunglasses and hair curlers.
The ‘Piece of Me’ hitmaker – who already has sons Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden, 15, with ex-husband Kevin Federline, 44 – is expecting baby number three with fiancé Sam Asghari, 28 .
She confirmed the pregnancy news earlier in April in an Instagram post.
Britney wrote: “I lost so much weight to make my trip to Maui than to gain it back…I thought ‘Damn…what happened to my stomach???’
“My husband said ‘No, you’re stupid pregnant with food!’ “So I took a pregnancy test…and uhhhhh well…I’m having a baby…4 days later I had some more pregnant food.
Ever since the baby news broke, Britney has been keeping fans updated via social media and two weeks ago she was spotted modeling outfits before her pregnancy started to ‘show’.
In an Instagram post, the “Toxic” star was seen wearing a selection of summer clothes, including a black mini dress with red hearts and a floral crop top with low-rise jeans.
Alongside the minute-long clip, the pop star wrote in the caption, “So I need to model my clothes now before I really start showing [pregnant emoji] …
The baby news came just months after Britney was released from a guardianship that controlled her life for more than a decade.
During her fight for freedom, Britney claimed conservatives denied her the chance to have another baby by forcing her to have a contraceptive implant.
