Britney Spears is pregnant.

The 40-year-old announced Monday on Instagram that she and partner Sam Asghari are expecting their first child together. “I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back,” Spears shared with 40 million followers, referencing the couple’s recent Hawaiian getaway. “I thought ‘Geez … what happened to my stomach ???’ My husband said ‘No you’re food pregnant silly !!!’ So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby.”

The post — accompanied by a stock image from Andrea McClain Photography featuring a pink teacup and flowers to match — drew a mountain of well wishes from her devoted fans, while some responded with more questions. “Like, for real?” wrote one follower with another adding, “Is this a pregnancy announcement?” Spears, however, was not confused, even outlining her plans for the coming months. “This time I will be doing yoga every day,” she wrote. “Spreading lots of joy and love!!!”

The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to reps for Spears and Asghari for additional comment. Asghari’s rep, Brandon Cohen at BAC Talent, had no comment and Spears’s lawyer did not respond as of press time. However, a source close to the couple confirmed that Spears is indeed expecting. The baby will be her third child as Spears shares two sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline, Jayden and Preston.
