Britney Spears is taking a step back from social media. On April 24, the 40-year-old singer - known to be quite active online - told her Instagram followers that she's taking a break in a post captioned, "I'm going on a social media hiatus for a little while 📱 !!! I send my love and God bless you all 💓💓🌹🌹 !!!" Her post included a video of a baby in a robe, sunglasses, and hair rollers, which could be a hint that the hiatus could be due to her expecting a child with Sam Asghari.

In true Spears fashion, she announced the news of her pregnancy on April 11 via Instagram. "So I got a pregnancy test . . . and uhhhhh well . . . I am having a baby," she shared in a post. This will be Spears's first child with Asghari and her third overall, as she shares her two sons, 16-year-old Sean and 15-year-old Jayden, with Kevin Federline.

Some could argue that Spears's social media break is more than warranted after the year she's had. Her 13-year conservatorship finally came to an end on Nov. 12, after she pleaded to have it terminated during a June 2021 court hearing. Now that it's all over, the expectant singer seems to be focused on moving forward with her fiancé and growing family.

Spears didn't say how long she planned to be away from social media, but her fans are glad to see she's taking some time away to enjoy her pregnancy.
