BritneySpears.Org:It’s official! Britney is pregnant and we at [originally] and the millions of fans around the world are glad to wish Britney and her family a big congratulations to the soon to be newbie family member. Well after weeks and weeks of tabloid speculation, Britney’s official website and spokesperson confirmed the news that the world has been anxious to know.

“The time has finally come to share our wonderful news that we are expecting our first child together,” Spears writes.

The news of the baby came right after tabloid Star Magazine published a cover story entitled “Baby Crisis! Britney Rushed to the Hospital!” According to the report, on Friday, Britney [accompanied by Kevin and a bodyguard] was rushed to Sacred Heart Hospital in West Destin, Florida where she went into the emergancy room. Adding Star Magazine says that Britney was “crying and pale” while her jeans were “stained with blood” but that she DID NOT miscarry.

According to an unnamed “source,” the magazine reports that Britney was then transferred to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center’ maternity ward which is also larger. At the maternity ward Britney was treated for premature separation of the placenta from her uterus. She reportedly was well enough to check out of the hospital on Sunday. Both the hospital nor Britney’s people would comment on Britney’s condition while at the hopsital but the website did address the hospital visit.

“There are reports that I was in the hospital this weekend, Kevin and I just want everyone to know that all is well,” she says. “Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.”

Britney went on record back in 2003 that she wanted to start working on her own family. In an interview with Newsweek, after her breakup with Justin Timberlake, Britney said she was hoping to be married and have kids within five years. But, after tying the knot with Kevin last September, she ramped up the timetable.

“I am going to be focusing on three main areas of my life for the immediate future. Myself, my husband, Kevin, and starting a family,” she wrote in a November post on her website.

Britney did not announce a due date, but reports have pegged her at four months along. No word on how the pregnancy will affect her recording plans–she had been working on an album, tentatively titled The Original Doll, for release later this year.
