Britney's baby daughter
13:30 14 April 2005
(BANG) - Britney Spears is expecting a baby girl.
The pop babe - who announced she was pregnant with her first child by second husband Kevin Federline earlier this week - is currently recovering from a miscarriage scare with a break in Florida.
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 at the weekend after experiencing severe abdominal pains and sources claim she was in danger of losing her unborn tot.
The sexy singer reportedly suffered from placental abruption, which can kill a foetus in two hours.
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 on 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."
