After months of speculation about the size and shape of her abdomen, the pop star confirmed to David Letterman Tuesday that she is expecting her second child with her aspiring rapper husband, Kevin Federline.

Spears, who was in New York this week promoting the latest scent in her fragrance line, made a surprise Late Night appearance to break the news.

She was accompanied by eight-month-old Sean Preston, whose September 2005 birth was notably memorialized by the sculpture Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston, one artist's interpretation of Spears expelling her firstborn into the world.

For those keeping track at home, Sean Preston's baby brother or sister will make the fourth child for Federline, who has two children from his previous relationship with actress Shar Jackson.

Spears is reportedly due in October, just a couple of weeks after Sean Preston's first birthday.

Over the last few months, the 24-year-old pop tart has found herself the target of some unfavorable reviews when it comes to her parenting skills.

Last month, officials from the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services paid a visit to Spears' Malibu home after Sean Preston was reportedly diagnosed with a minor skull fracture sustained when he was dropped by his nanny.

Following the visit, Spears' attorney, Martin Singer, issued a statement clarifying that the Department of Children and Family Services had "determined there was no problem and no reason to open a formal investigation."

Unfortunately, it was the second visit the Department of Children and Family Services had paid to the Spears-Federline residence due to concern over Sean Preston's well-being.

In February, the department dispatched a sheriff to the home to obtain Spears' "contact information," after she was photographed driving her black SUV with her baby perched on her lap, rather than restrained in a car seat.

Spears initially explained that her reckless action was a result of trying to escape from the swarms of paparazzi trying to photograph her. "I instinctively took measures to get my baby and me out of harm's way," she said in a statement.

Later, however, she admitted that perhaps putting her baby behind the wheel wasn't the highlight of her maternal career.

"I made a mistake, and so it is what it is, I guess," she told Access Hollywood.

With another offspring on the way, the pop tart is unlikely to resume her chaotic recording and touring schedule anytime in the near future. In the meantime, Federline is doing his best to hold down the musical fort for the family.

The expectant father is preparing to release his much-touted debut album, Playing with Fire, in August, despite the fact that he does not yet have a record contract.

Don't know who to feel sorry for here, Britney, never being left alone or the new celebrity baby. Kids don't come with manuals but I hope she has learnt enough to do a better job this time around. For the baby(s) sake.
