The Surprising Way Pregnancy Hormones Are Affecting Britney Spears

Ever since her highly restrictive conservatorship was finally ended in late 2021, Britney Spears has been opening up on social media in a way she was prevented from doing for over a decade. 

The legendary pop star has revealed, among other things, how tough her life was under the strict control of her father, Jamie Spears, and how happy she is to finally be allowed to do whatever she likes. 

Key to that process was Spears conceiving another child, which she was unable to do after being forced to use an IUD by her handlers (per Variety). In April 2022, the "Baby One More Time" hitmaker shared on Instagram that she was pregnant with fiance Sam Ashgari, much to the delight of fans. 

At the time, Spears also got candid about her motherhood fears, admitting she was concerned about press intrusion after being harshly judged by the tabloids and public alike the last time she was expecting. Sadly, it seems her concerns were warranted since Spears' latest online behavior had fans worried for her future since the pop star posted several nude pics online (again). 

Now, she's setting the record straight about the real impact of pregnancy in a characteristically frank way.

Britney Spears' pregnancy is making her feel a bit different

As the Independent notes, after Britney Spears shared a since-deleted post about how ugly and horrible her father made her feel as a teenager and all the way through her 20s, fans began cheering her on for sharing a variety of nude images on Instagram

There was concern over the singer's mental health, too, but plenty of followers argued that Spears was finally doing whatever she wanted and should be supported accordingly. And, as it turns out, her frolicking around in the buff is a result of the pop star's recently announced pregnancy.

"Being pregnant my hormones are kinda stupid," Spears admitted on Instagram. "[B]ut it's weird I want to jump out of the car and run naked like Will Ferrell in 'Old School' yep pregnant lady running through don't mind me and I'm hot as f**k here." 

So fans can relax because all is well with the "Toxic" hitmaker, who also posted a shot of appetizing-looking pizza that, sadly, didn't live up to her expectations. 

Possibly hinting at the backlash to her nude photos, Spears admitted, "Casted away yet set again to own it ... I say it with no humiliation at all whatsoever !!! I literally sit in it ... the embarrassment I bathe in it ... cry in it and laugh in it." 

She's currently on vacation and is clearly enjoying a well-deserved break (despite the bad pizza, of course).
