Exciting days are ahead of pop music star Britney Spears as she revealed her engagement to boyfriend Sam Asghari on Instagram last September 12. Sam’s personal account showed a photo of Britney’s ring finger wearing a stunning 4-carat diamond ring that is absolutely awe-inspiring.
The gorgeous engagement ring was designed by jeweler Roman Malayev, the New York-based founder of Forever Diamonds.
Britney also took to her social media account and posted a video of her and Sam, saying, “I can’t f––king believe it.” Fans of the music icon were quick to comment on their delight and excitement. After all, Britney deserves this win after a series of life-changing revelations the past few months that involved her conservatorship case against her legal guardians.
The 33-year-old Britney has been with the 27-year-old Iranian personal trainer, model, and actor for five years now, and sources close to the couple say that they have always believed the two would end up getting hitched down the line, seeing how committed they have been to each other through the ups and downs of their relationship.
“The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them,” Sam’s manager Brandon Cohen said in a statement published by People magazine.
Britney and Sam met in 2016 on the set of the “Slumber Party” music video. Five months after their encounter on set, the two officially started dating. They have never been apart since then.
Sam traces his roots all the way in Tehran, Iran, where he was born on March 23, 1994. When he was two years old, his father moved to the United States to work as a tow truck driver. Sam stayed in Tehran with three older sisters, Maddy, Ellie, and Faye. Even at a young age, Sam showed a lot of interest in law enforcement and football. In 2006, Sam moved to America to live with his father. It was during his time as a high school freshman in the country that he joined a football team. This eventually led him to enter a football program at the prestigious University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Sam attended the Los Angeles Pierce College, where he studied criminal justice while he maintained three jobs to make ends meet. He balanced his time between school, being a clerk, sales rep, and nightclub bouncer. He had to give up football to be able to keep up with his tight schedule. At 19, he quit his three jobs and decided to become a personal trainer. He signed up for the Smart Nutrition course at Gold’s Gym to jump-start his journey in the fitness industry.
The announcement of Britney and Sam’s engagement comes days after the pop star’s father, Jamie Spears, filed a petition to end his daughter’s court-ordered conservatorship. The filing of the petition comes as a major development in Britney’s ongoing court battle with her father. He was granted conservatorship over his daughter many years ago after her very public mental health breakdown.
Britney was previously married to her childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander in 2004 for a duration that only lasted 55 hours. Her second marriage was with Kevin Federline, with whom she has two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.
