Sam Asghari is looking forward to welcoming his first child with Britney Spears, but don’t expect the couple to be sharing a gender reveal any time soon.
In a new interview with Access Daily‘s Mario Lopez, the actor opened up about becoming a father and explained why he doesn’t want to know the sex of the baby beforehand.
When asked if he plans to be a “hands-on” parent, Asghari replied, “Absolutely, man. Hands-on as much as possible. This is my first baby.”
He adds that identifying the sex of the baby is ultimately in his pop star fiancé’s hands, though he prefers to not know.
“That’s up to her, I don’t want to [know],” he told Lopez. “That is something I want to wait for…if it is a daughter it is gonna be the most spoiled princess ever. If it’s a son, it is going to be the toughest son ever.”
The couple announced that they are expecting their first child together in an Instagram post shared earlier this month.
“I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️ … I thought ‘Geez … what happened to my stomach ???’ My husband said ‘No you’re food pregnant silly 🤪 !!!’ So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby 👶🏼,” Spears wrote.
She also elaborated on her previous pregnancy experiences, in which she say she had perinatal depression. “It’s hard because when I was pregnant I had perinatal depression … I have to say it is absolutely horrible 😔,” she continued. “Women didn’t talk about it back then … some people considered it dangerous if a woman complained like that with a baby inside her … but now women talk about it everyday … thank Jesus we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved proper secret 🤫 😬😬😬 … This time I will be doing yoga 🧘♀️ every day !!!”
Spears already has two children—16-year-old Sean Preston Federline and 15-year-old Jayden James Federline—whom she shares with her ex-husband, Kevin Federline.
