NEW YORK – Britney Spears has revealed what might be Hollywood’s worst-kept secret: She’s pregnant. In a posting on her Web site, Spears told fans that she and husband, Kevin Federline, were expecting their first child together. Her publicist, Sonia Muckle, confirmed the singer’s pregnancy Tuesday but refused to provide additional details.
The time has finally come to share our wonderful news that we are expecting our first child together,” the singer said. “There are reports that I was in the hospital this weekend, and Kevin and I just want everyone to know that all is well. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.”
The couple were married in September. Magazines and tabloids have speculated for weeks that Spears, 23, was pregnant, documenting her expanding waistline and fuller figure, but she remained mum on the subject.
However, she has previously expressed a desire to start a family. In an interview with People magazine last fall, she said: “I want to be a young mom. I can see us as parents.”
While this will be Spears’ first foray into parenthood, Federline, 27, has two children with his ex-girlfriend, actress Shar Jackson. Spears and Federline met last year when he was a backup dancer on her tour
