Britney Spears has reportedly been put under round-the-clock medical care over fears she could lose her unborn baby.
The pop babe, who announced she was expecting her first child with husband Kevin Federline last week, was rushed to hospital earlier this month after suffering from “implantation bleeding”, which can result in a miscarriage.
Now Britney’s worried mother, Lynne, has reportedly hired a team of nurses after doctors told her there was a 50% chance Britney could lose her baby if it happened again.
A source said: “Britney was in tears. Though she wasn’t in any pain, the prospect of losing the child she was desperate for really got to her.”
Last week, it was revealed Britney is expecting a baby girl. The sexy singer was enjoying a break in Florida with Kevin after recovering from the miscarriage scare.
When asked how Britney was, her publicist, Leslie Sloan, let slip the baby’s sex, saying: “She’s OK. Mother and daughter are doing fine.”
Britney was rushed to a private clinic last weekend (09.04.05) after experiencing severe abdominal pains.
However, her condition was later played down as a “common complaint” but Britney was kept under observation for two days.
Britney, 23, announced her happy news last Tuesday (12.04.05) on her website.
She wrote: “The time has finally come to share our wonderful news that we are expecting our first child together.
“There were reports I was in the hospital this weekend. Kevin and I just want everyone to know that all is well.
“Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Love Britney and Kevin.”
Britney married Kevin last September after a whirlwind romance.
