‘Spears gets pregnant’ sparked widespread negative reaction on the internet

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline’s dissolution soon after her June 2006 “Slave 4 U” single, “Everytime,” seemed like a blessing in disguise. When the end of their relationship came soon after, all of Spears’s public appearances were still made before she was legally single, and her career recovered without the distractions of a divorce or custody issues. But that doesn’t mean her career is immune to her personal life or her family, or her three sons, being messed up by her on-again, off-again partners.

On Thursday, Spears posted an Instagram video from her Kids Choice Awards rehearsal, confirming her pregnancy, and asking to have her privacy “owned,” as she proceeded to film an episode of her reality show.

Fans reacted strongly on the internet to this news. Her younger brother Jamie, and ex-boyfriend, Jason Trawick, both posted posts about his sister’s pregnancy, as did her father, Lynne Spears. Others responded with disapproval, as to what this really means for Britney and her boys.

“Spears now has a choice to make,” wrote one fan. “Which is do I want Britney to spend more time with her, and let more of her mistakes happen over and over again, or try to start a new beginning now.”

“Getting married again and making more big mistakes now is what I want for my son,” wrote another. “But you know what if you want to be married more than a day, then say it! You are seeing a therapist regularly and working on yourself but this pregnancy was not a step in your recovery; it was part of that you were not following through on, and what that does to a child is very sad.”
