Britney Spears is engaged! The singer’s longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari popped the question after nearly five years of dating. Spears shared the news on her Instagram on Sunday with a sweet video of her and Asghari.
“I can’t f**king believe it 💍💍💍💍💍💍❣️!!!!!!” she captioned the post, showing off her new rock. “Do you like it?” Asghari asks in the video, to which the singer enthusiastically replies, ”Yes!”
Asghari teased the news on his own Instagram story shortly before Spears’s announcement writing, “Biggest news... Can’t wait to share.” He then shared a photo of him and Spears, with the singer holding up her gorgeous ring to the camera.
Asghari proposed with a four carat diamond ring designed by Forever Diamonds NY. According to the jeweler, the actor worked with Forever Diamonds Founder Roman Malayev to create a custom setting that combined "timeless elegance with thoughtful details." The solitaire setting features pavé detailing along the bridge, additional diamond detailing on the prongs and basket, and even a "secret diamond" below the bridge. Asghari also engraved the inside of the band with "Lioness", his nickname for Spears.
Spears and Asghari first met on the set of her “Slumber Party” music video back in 2016. The actor has supported Spears throughout her battle to end her conservatorship. Back in August, she praised Asghari for helping her through “both the hardest and the best years of my life.” The singer recently expressed her desire to marry her longtime boyfriend during her court testimony but claimed that her conservatorship prevented the couple from doing so.
Spears was previously married to Kevin Federline, the father of her two children, from 2004 to 2007. She was also briefly married to childhood friend Jason Alexander for just 55 hours in 2004.
