Pop star and Federline are expecting first child together

April 13, 2005 12:00 AM ET

Britney Spears has put an end to the tabloid rumors that she is expecting a baby . . . by confirming them. Spears, who married husband Kevin Federline in September, announced yesterday that she is indeed pregnant.

"The time has finally come to share our wonderful news that we are expecting our first child together," posted the twenty-three-year-old Spears on her official Web site. "There are reports that I was in the hospital this weekend, and Kevin and I just want everyone to know that all is well. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers."

This will be Spears' first child, while Federline has two children with former girlfriend Shar Jackson. Spears and Federline, a former backup dancer for the pop star, met last year while Jackson was pregnant with Federline's second child.

Spears and Federline recently signed a deal with UPN to star in their own six-episode reality show airing in May. The show will document the couple's courtship, engagement and wedding.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
