Britney Spears and Sam Asghari are getting married!
After more than four years of dating, Britney Spears and Sam Asghari confirmed their engagement on Instagram on Sunday.
Spears, who is “ecstatic” about the proposal, showed off her new engagement rock in a sweet video with Asghari by her side. When Asghari asks if she likes her new bling, she responds, “Yes!”
Asghari’s manager Brandon Cohen told People that he is “proud to celebrate and confirm the engagement.”
According to Cohen, “The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them.” He even mentioned that Spears’ new ring was crafted by New York jeweller Roman Malayev. “He couldn’t be happier to be involved and make this one-of-a-kind ring,” said Cohen.
Britney Spears, 39, and Sam Asghari, 27, first became romantically involved in 2016 after meeting on the set of Spears’ “Slumber Party” music video.
The singer has had a rollercoaster year as she fights to end her 13-year conservatorship. Spears thanked her now-fiancé on Instagram in August for assisting her during the “hardest years” of her life. She wrote, “Not only has this cute asshole been with me through the hardest years of my life but he happens to be an extremely good cook! Fast & Furious franchise, don’t miss out on your next star!!!!”
The Iran-born actor opened out about the beginning of his relationship with Spears in a March interview with Forbes, admitting he was ready to take the next step in his profession — and relationship.
“My priorities in life are to remain humble and understand where I came from and where I’m going,” he said at the time to Forbes. “I want to take my career to the next step when it comes to acting. I want to take my relationship to the next step, as well. I don’t mind becoming a father. I want to be a young dad.”
A few months later, during a conservatorship hearing, Britney Spears stated unequivocally that she wanted to marry and have a child with Sam Asghari. People was told by a friend of the couple that he, too, was ready to settle down.
“He’s ready for marriage and kids with Britney and is serious about the relationship. She wants to take that next step and have that full life with him,” said the pal. “As a couple they’ve hidden how they’ve really felt even from people close to them because they were anxious and scared, but now it’s all out there.”
A source told the outlet that Asghari was the singer’s “rock” after the tense court hearing in June.
“Sam has been Britney’s rock for years. He makes sure that she eats well and works out. She leans on him for everything. He works and has his own life too, but is around as much as he can,” said the source.
