It’s wedding bells for Britney Spears and her boyfriend, Sam Asghari! The couple took to Instagram to share the exciting news on Sunday, including a close-up glimpse of her GORGEOUS engagement ring!
At one point during the video, Sam asks her if she likes it, and responds with a resounding “YES!”
Sam shared his own post featuring the STUNNING ring with the king and queen emojis.
We respect Britney and Sam’s privacy, and we know all you fans out there do too.
Let’s celebrate the best way we know how: starting with their feel-good “meet cute” story then seeing how fans and celebs (who are major Britney/Sam fans) are reacting to the happy news!
Like any couple, Britney Spears and long-time boyfriend Sam Asghari have been through a lot together
Britney and Sam first met on the set of her music video Slumber Party back in 2016. The two have been dating for more than 4 years. Sam has remained by her side throughout all of the ups and downs during her conservatorship hearings (#FreeBritney), mental health struggles, and the harassment from online trolls and paparazzi. Britney has also been so supportive of Sam as he works towards his aspirations to become a blockbuster movie actor (anyone else loving him as Giancarlo in SHOWTIME’s Black Monday?!).
In September 2019, we reported on Sam’s interview with Entertainment Tonight, where he opened up about their relationship:
“What I love the most about my relationship is the fact that it’s so normal. It’s not glamorous or anything. She inspires me in my work and I can give so much to her by going to the gym, by going to work, by having a balanced life. We can get inspired by each other here and there and really grow with each other.”
We’re so inspired by their love 🥰
Hollywood celebrities show support for Britney’s engagement
Hollywood came OUT to react to Britney’s engagement, just as much as they rallied around Britney Spears after her conservatorship hearing.

The GLOW, though.
Bachelor franchise host and former contestant, Kaitlyn Bristowe wrote on Britney’s post, “I’m going to need 3-5 business days to recover from this news.”SAME, Kaitlyn!
Andy Cohen wrote a simple, “Mazel!” on Britney’s engagement post.
Octavia Spencer candidly said, “make him sign a prenup.”
Sam Asghari acknowledged similar comments by taking to Instagram stories and saying “Of course we’re getting iron clad prenup to protect my jeep and shoe collection in case she dumps me one day 😂😂”
We love your sense of humor, Sam, and your shoe collection. Never change.
