Britney Spears Is Pregnant After Her Conservatorship Ended
What's the latest news with Britney Spears? Well, apparently she's expecting a baby with her partner, Sam Asghari.
Spears announced her pregnancy news on Instagram on April 11, 2022. The two have been engaged since September 2021 and have wanted children together for a long time.
In fact, this message was part of her 2021 legal battle to end her conservatorship that had controlled her life for almost 14 years, even to the extent that it prohibited her from stopping the use of birth control.
On Nov. 12, 2021, the conservatorship ended, and luckily for Spears, that means she can finally expand her family.
'Framing Britney Spears' Documentary Explains So Much
For those that haven't followed the pop star's legal battles over the past few years, the "Framing Britney Spears" documentary, which aired on Feb. 5, 2021, on FX delves deep into the pop princess' legal battles with her father.
Ever since 2008, she was placed under a legal conservatorship (typically reserved for the elderly), giving her father complete control over her own finances and career because she was deemed incapable of doing so.
But was Britney Spears really unfit to take care of herself, or was it just another example of sexism in an industry already facing serious #MeToo scrutiny? The answer to that question takes various twists and turns throughout the documentary, addressing issues of sexism and classism that ultimately brought down Spears in the eye of the media, the public and even herself.
Of course, the documentary also brought light to the #FreeBritney movement, which was started by fans at the onset of the conservatorship 13 years ago and continued until the end of the case in November.
As the pop star moves onto a new chapter in her life, here's a look back over the past 20-plus years that she's been in the spotlight.
