Britney Spears and Sam Asghari joked that they’re married, but are they engaged and how long have they been together?

Britney Spears is pregnant with fiancé – and rumoured husband – Sam Asghari after six years together following her escape from her strict conservatorship at the end of last year.

The pop star and model have been together since 2016 but in recent months have fuelled speculation they're actually married.

Sam only fuelled the rumours last summer when he said they’ve been “hitched for years”, claiming they secretly wed in Hawaii.

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.

Britney announced she and Sam are expecting their first baby on 11 April, revealing she discovered the news after 'putting back on the weight she lost' for their holiday to Maui.

She said she'd do yoga every day during the pregnancy after suffering perinatal depression with her previous babies.

Meanwhile, Sam said in an Instagram post: "Marriage and kids are a natural part of a strong relationship filled with love and respect. Fatherhood is something I have always looked forward to and i don’t take lightly. It is the most important job i will ever do."

Are Britney Spears and Sam Asghari married?

Britney and Sam haven't confirmed whether they're actually married, but she frequently calls him her 'husband' on social media after they got engaged last year.

She’s always made it very clear she’d love to tie the knot and have more children with him – she already has 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.”

Sam fuelled reports they’d secretly wed when he told reporters: “People don't know but we've been married for about five years. We secretly got married in Hawaii,” after they quizzed him on engagement rumours.

He then admitted he hadn’t seen the speculation in the press and added with a smile on his face: “And, yeah, we have twins. Peace.”

How long have Britney and Sam Asghari been together?

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.

What did Sam say about Britney’s conservatorship?

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.
