Britney Spears declares she's pregnant

Britney Spears said she is "having a child" with her life partner, Sam Asghari, in an Instagram post Monday.

Britney Spears is pregnant, the 40-year-old pop star reported on Instagram Monday.

Spears revealed a longing for  more children less than a year ago, when she said she was unable to make her own birth control decisions while she was under a conservatorship

Spears said she took a pregnancy test after she saw her stomach was "growing" in spite of recent weight loss after a trip to Hawaii.

At first, Asghari joked that she was "food pregnant," but Spears decided to take a test anyway.

"So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a child," she said.

The news of the pop star's pregnancy comes months after a judge ended her 13-year conservatorship after an exceptionally announced fight in court with Spears' dad.

This arrangement meant Spears had very limited control over her life
