Britney Spears and Sam Asghari have officially tied the knot, but when did they become engaged and how long have they been together?
Britney Spears and Sam Asghari are officially husband and wife after six years together, they officially got married in June following her escape from her strict conservatorship at the end of last year.
The pop star and model have been together since 2016 and in early 2022 they began to fuel speculation that they got married in secret!
The actor and personal trainer sparked the rumours last summer when he said they’ve been “hitched for years”, however, Sam and Britney's actual wedding ceremony was a star-studded event that unravelled on June 9.
However, he quickly shut down the excitement by joking they also "have twins" – something which is actually very possible now that Britney's pregnant with their first child (her third after sons Sean and Jayden) together.
The couple have been together for a long time now and he constantly supported his partner amid her conservatorship battle.
But how long have Britney and Sam been together, are they married and how did they meet? Here’s a complete timeline of their relationship…
Rumours had been whirring on the internet for months as Brit often referred to her beau as 'husband' on social media, making fans think they were wed months before the pop princess officially tied the knot!
Britney and Sam said 'I Do' during a fairytale ceremony at their Los Angeles home on June 9, 2022 – however, the event was crashed by Britney's ex-husband Jason Alexander, who was subsequently arrested.
Jason – who the star wed back in 2004 for just 55 hours before it was annulled – was charged with one count of misdemeanour vandalism, one count of misdemeanour trespassing and two counts of misdemeanour battery.
Despite the scary incident, it seemed the wedding was still a magical day for the newlyweds after a delay due to the intrusion.
Famous faces such as Selena Gomez, Paris Hilton, Drew Barrymore and Donatella Versace were in attendance at the couples' dream nuptials – and by the looks of Instagram, everyone had a blast!
In one of Britney's posts, she gushed over the special day: "WE DID IT !!! WE GOT MARRIED!!! Gggggeeeeezzzzz !!! It was the most spectacular day [sic]."
The 'Toxic' hit-maker has always made it crystal clear on social media that she wants children with Sam – growing her family as she already shares sons Sean and Jayden with ex Kevin Federline.
In her court appearance in June 2021 for her conservatorship hearing the ‘Baby One More Time’ singer said: “I want to be able to get married and I want to have a baby.”
Britney and Sam met on set of her ‘Slumber Party’ music video in October 2016 and they began dating shortly after.
They chatted all day and bonded over their love of sushi, swapping phone numbers at the end of the day so they could go on a proper date.
She recalled during a 2017 interview: “I found his number in my bag. I was like, ‘He is really really cute. So then I called him, and ever since then, he is just a really fun, funny person.”
Sam has remained a key support system in Britney’s life.
Sam was an ongoing support for Britney throughout her battle to remove her father as her conservator.
After her court hearing in June 2021 where she made some shocking claims about the team around her, Sam didn’t say much but posted a photo of himself wearing a ‘free Britney’ t-shirt.
He also sweetly calls her his 'lioness' for her constant strength.
