Sam Asghari and Britney Spears are officially engaged! Britney broke the news on Instagram with her 34 million followers. The pop star uploaded a seconds-long video to her feed featuring herself and her long-time boyfriend. But it was the sparkling diamond on Britney’s ring finger that caught the attention of her followers. “I can’t f*cking believe it,” she captioned the video alongside several diamond ring emojis.

Sam also confirmed the news on his own Instagram account. He shared a photo of himself and Britney embracing. The singer flipped her ring finger off for the camera in order to put her diamond on full display.
Speculation has been brewing for several weeks that Sam was getting ready to pop the question. Last month, he was spotted looking for jewelry at a Cartier in Beverly Hills. Though it was unclear if he was scoping out a diamond, photos did show Sam picking up a ring to have a closer look.

Even more telling, a photo of a diamond ring was shared on Sam’s Instagram account last week. The large diamond featured the word “lioness” engraved in the band. However, shortly after it was shared on his Instagram Story, the post was removed.
Sam followed it up with a statement claiming that his account had been hacked. “Account got hacked and was photoshopped – calm down everyone!” he wrote.
It remains unclear if Sam’s account was hacked by a third party or if the photo was uploaded mistakenly by someone from his team.
Both Sam and Britney, who have been together since 2017, have been vocal about their desire to get married. Last summer, Britney gave a scathing testimony in court criticizing her decade-long conservatorship. She described the conservatorship as abusive and said it controls all aspects of her life, including personal decisions.

Perhaps the most shocking part of Britney’s testimony was that she revealed her team is preventing her from getting married and won’t allow her to remove an IUD, despite her hopes to have more children.
“This so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out, because they don’t want me to have children, any more children,” Britney said, adding she’d like to sue her family over the conservatorship.
Sam has also been open about his hopes to tie the knot with his long-time girlfriend. During an interview with Forbes, the dancer said he’s ready to take his relationship to the ‘next step’. Sam added he’s always envisioned himself as a ‘young dad’.
Recently, Britney’s father Jamie Spears announced he would be stepping down as her conservator amid an intense public backlash. This may explain why Sam and Britney are now officially engaged after years of discussing their hopes to do so.
