Britney Spears has confused fans with her most recent social media post, as she has implied she may be expecting a new member to her family.

Britney is the mother of two boys—Jayden and Sean—with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, but it seems that the star may be teasing a new addition to her family with her fiancé Sam Asghari. 

In a new post on Instagram, Britney posted a photo of her back while she cradled something in her arms and fed it milk from a bottle. The caption of this post read, "New addition to the family 😲 guess if it’s a boy or a girl 🤗 🎀 … thank you again baby @samasghari !!!!"

Britney's celebrity friends commented on this post with delight. Paris Hilton simply posted an emoji with love heart eyes as she posted, "😍." Sam Asghari, Britney's fiancé also posted with emojis and commented, "😮😮😮😮😮."

Some fans were quick to joke and one commented, "Baby, one more time???" Another fan commented with an Ace of Base lyric and said, "Aaaaall that she wants its another baby!"

However, some fans think that Britney is not expecting another baby and is simply teasing her fans. "Queen of trolling the internet," commented one follower.

Others were also quick to notice that based on the bottle placement, Britney was more likely to be feeding an animal, than a baby.

"I think its a baby puppy! 😍" said one enthusiastic fan. Many others agreed with this assumption, but some had different ideas. "Omg did you get a kitten Britney??" commented one fan, "Is it a piggy???" asked another.

Britney has continued to taunt fans by refusing to reveal who—or what—the new addition to her family is, and has continued to post as normal on her Instagram page.

It was revealed that while under her conservatorship, Britney was forced to have an IUD in order to prevent any possible pregnancies. 

The star is now free from her conservatorship and can now make both financial and personal decisions for herself. It is now completely up to Britney if she chooses to adopt a pet or have another baby.
