“Marriage and kids are a natural part of a strong relationship filled with love and respect,” Sam Asghari wrote on his verified Instagram account Monday.
“Fatherhood is something I have always looked forward to and I don’t take lightly,” he wrote in the caption of a drawing showing a family of lions. “It is the most important job I will ever do.”
Earlier Spears had posted on her verified Instagram account that after losing some weight to go on a recent Maui vacation, she had gained it back and wrote that Asghari told her she was “food pregnant.”
“So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby,” Spears wrote.
CNN has reached out to a representative for Spears for comment.
Asghari and Spears got engaged in September 2021 and do not currently have any children together.
She shares her teen sons Sean and Jayden with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
