Britney Spears has confessed she has "let herself go" since marrying husband Kevin Federline.
The singer, who is four months pregnant, admits she put on weight and lost some of her famous sex appeal after tying the knot.
She said: "After I got married I let myself go a little bit. I was lounging around, eating and laying out. I didn't have a care in the world. I love junk food and occasionally will still splurge."
Britney - who recently said she loved being pregnant because she can eat to her heart's content - also admitted her first marriage to Jason Alexander was a cry for help.
The 'Toxic' singer wed her childhood sweetheart in January 2004 in Las Vegas but the marriage was annulled after just 55 hours.
Britney now admits it was only an attempt to get her parents' attention.
She explained in an interview with Scotland's Daily Record newspaper: "I think it was a desperate cry to my family. I had felt lost for so long. I was working so hard I didn't know what was going on.
"I needed my mom and dad. Your daughter getting married is one of the biggest things in the world and I think it really shocked them."
