Britney Spears, full name Britney Jean Spears, is an American singer who helped launch the teen-pop movement in the late 1990s and later faced significant public attention for her chaotic personal life. She was born on December 2, 1981, in McComb, Mississippi.
Spears, who was born and raised in Kentwood, Louisiana, started singing and dancing at the age of two and soon found herself competing in talent competitions. She applied for Disney’s tv series The All-New Mickey Mouse Club when she was eight years old but was considered too young for the show.
The producers were so impressed that they encouraged her to get an agent in New York City, and she started spending her summers there at the Professional Performing Arts School. During this time, she began acting in television commercials and had her Off-Broadway debut in Ruthless in 1991.
Spears finally joined the cast of The All-New Mickey Mouse Club two years later, joining a group that included future pop sensations Justin Timberlake (with whom she later had a personal relationship) and Christina Aguilera.
Britney Spears Miscarriage
Britney Spears has confirmed that she has had a miscarriage, just one month after announcing her pregnancy.
The singer revealed to the people who follow her on Instagram that she and her partner Sam Asghari had “lost our miracle baby.”
It comes months after she managed to get out of a legal agreement that allowed her father complete authority over her life, particularly her women’s health.
The 40-year-old, who has two teen sons, previously expressed her desire to start a family with Asghari, a fitness instructor.
“It is with great grief that we must inform you that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy,” she said in a Saturday post.
She went on to say: “For any parent, this is a difficult period.
“We should have waited until we were further along to declare, but we were overjoyed to share the wonderful news.
After Spears had a public mental health crisis in 2008, her father established a conservatorship, which is a type of legal guardianship.
Last year, she testified in court against the conservatorship, claiming that it stopped her from marrying or eliminating her birth control.
When she announced her pregnancy in April, she claimed it would be “challenging” because she had previously had perinatal depression, which is defined as depression that occurs between the time of conception and around a year following delivery.
The singer, who had two children from her marriage to Kevin Federline, described it as “extremely horrific” and said it had never been spoken publicly before.
“Our strength comes from our affection for one another. We’ll keep trying to grow our wonderful family.”
