We feel bad for everyone at the 2021 MTV VMAs, as there’s only one topic on everyone’s lips this morning – Britney Spears’s engagement!
The 39-year-old singer revealed that she is engaged to 27-year-old boyfriend Sam Asghari, in a very cute video she shared on Instagram.
In the short and sweet video, she can be seen putting her hand in front of her mouth in a shocked motion and flashing a gargantuan engagement ring which definitely didn’t go unnoticed. We don’t think we’ve seen her look so genuinely happy in years!
“I can’t f***ing believe it,” she captioned the video, alongside several engagement ring emojis, a heart emoji, and many exclamation points that followed.
The news was also officially confirmed by Sam Asghari’s manager, Brandon Cohen…
“The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them,” he told People.
Sam Asghari shared another post about the engagement to his own Instagram account, showing his followers another picture of the gorgeous ring.
According to reports, the ring is a four carat diamond ring, with the word “lioness”, his nickname for his now fiancée, engraved on the band. The ring features a brilliant round stone in a platinum cathedral setting, and was reportedly designed by Forever Diamonds NY founder, Roman Malayev.
“Every designer I spoke with about the ring was amazing with great ideas, but I just clicked with Roman,” Sam Asghari said in a statement.
“We really connected on the design and he was as excited as I was to make it special—that’s why I chose him.”
Britney Spears and the Iranian model met on the set of her Slumber Party music video back in 2016. If Britney and Sam do make it down the aisle, it will be his first and her third marriage.
She was briefly married to childhood friend Jason Alexander in 2004, before getting the marriage annulled after just 55 hours, and then married Kevin Federline later that same year. She and Kevin, who divorced in 2007, share two sons; Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15.
We think the third time’s definitely the charm, and we can’t wait for them to start their new life together.
Congratulations Britney and Sam!
