LATEST: Britney Spears' publicist has accidentally revealed the sex of the singer's baby is a girl, after responding to reports of the pregnant star's alleged weekend (09-10APR05) hospitalisation.

The TOXIC hitmaker, 23, and husband Kevin Federline, 27, announced they were expecting their first child together on Spears' official website on Tuesday (12APR05) - but did not reveal the sex.

When journalists phoned Spears' spokespeople to find out if the star was ok following an alleged health scare in Florida over the weekend, they inadvertently revealed the couple were expecting a girl.

Spears' publicist LESLIE SLOAN says, "She's ok. Mother and daughter are doing fine."
