Britney sings celebrates her birthday together with Sam Asghari

Britney Spears’ return to Instagram after seemingly deleting her account, has led to pregnancy rumours.

The 40-year-old Oops!… I Did It Again legend threw her almost 40 million followers into a panic on Wednesday when she abruptly deleted her account on photo sharing app Instagram.

However, she had her page back up and running in time for the weekend – reactivating the account and sharing photographs of herself posing in a midriff-baring outfit.

The chart-topping star smiled as she posed for a photo in a white top with dramatic sheer sleeves. She paired it up with a dark, velour miniskirt.

She also wore brown heels and seemed relaxed as she shared the collage with us. “My clueless look.”

The singer’s 39.9 million followers were thrilled to see her back online and sharing the wholesome snaps – with one writing: “SHE’S BACK”A different typing: “There you are”And another happy fan writing “Thank you, ma’am.”

Fan reactions took a dramatic turn, however, when minutes later Britney shared videos of a heavily pregnant woman touching her own stomach – with the unborn child clearly moving inside the pregnant tummy.

The video was made by TikTok user named ‘lirios9595’The caption was also shared by the singer: “Mommy … get me out of here.”

Many fans wondered if the singer was hinting at pregnancy by sharing the video.

One questioned: “Got something to tell us?”

Another writer wrote: “GIRL thought u were pregnant!” – while another follower typed: “I think she’s been subtly hinting she is.”

Britney revealed last year that she was forced to use contraceptives 13 years ago while in a conservatorship, which handed control of her financial and personal lives to her father.

The singer battled to have the court order overturned – and was successful last November.

But during court hearings, fans were devastated to learn the singer had been forced to take medications that would prevent her falling pregnant – dashing her hopes to have more children.

The mum-of-two – who shares sons Sean, 16, and Jayden, 15, with 43-year-old ex-husband Kevin Federline – told the court: “I want to be able to get married and have a baby. I have an IUD inside of myself so that I don’t get pregnant, but [my team doesn’t] want me to have any more children.”

Since the end of her conservatorship, there have been reports Britney hopes to welcome a child with her fiancé, Sam Asghari, 28.

This was the plan of the singer, who wrote an online wish to her husband-to be a happy Birthday earlier in this month. “Happy Birthday [present emojis] to my Fiancé … I love you so much [love heart emoji] … I want a family with you … I want it all with you !!!!”
