Britney Spears has announced that she is engaged to Sam Asghari after more than four years.
The pop superstar, who recently celebrated a legal victory at the conservatory that controls her life and career, shared a video of her wearing a diamond ring.
She wrote on Instagram, “I can’t believe it,” alongside diamond ring emojis and a love heart.
The video showed an emotional-looking Spears, 39, showing off the ring, while Iranian actress and fitness trainer Asghari, 27, asked if she was happy with it.
“Yes sir!” Spears replied. She also kissed him on the cheek.
The couple met on the set of a music video in 2016. Spears recently praised Asghari for his support during “her toughest years”.
Asghari’s manager Brandon Cohen confirmed the engagement to People.
He said in a statement that he was “proud to celebrate and confirm the engagement”.
He added, “The couple today made their long-standing relationship official and are deeply touched by the support, devotion and love that have been shown to them.”
The engagement news comes after Spears’ father Jamie filed a motion in a Los Angeles court to terminate their conservatories.
The singer’s personal affairs and money have been controlled by a complex legal regime since 2008 after suffering a series of mental breakdowns.
Spears had called for the conservatories to be terminated, accusing her father of abusing his role as guardian of their estate.
At a June hearing, Spears claimed it prevented her from marrying Asghari and raising a family together.
