The star confirms the news

Britney Spears is pregnant with her second child.

The star confirmed the news during an appearance on the ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ in the US last night (May 9).

When asked by Letterman, “So, we’ve established now that you are in fact pregnant, is that right?”, Spears replied “Yes, sir.”

She then joked: “Don’t worry, Dave, it’s not yours.”

Press rumours have been rife over whether or not the singer was pregnant again.

Spears gave birth to her first child, Sean Preston, in September after marrying Kevin Federline in 2004.

Federline already has two children with ex-girlfriend, Shar Jackson.
