Britney Spears and Sam Asghari Are Married
It’s official: Britney Spears and Sam Asghari are now a married couple! On June 9, People confirmed that the pair tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles with 60 guests from their close circle. Celebrities like Madonna, Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, and Drew Barrymore were all in attendance.
Spears’s sons, 16-year-old Sean Preston and 15-year-old Jayden James, did not attend the wedding, but Kevin Federline’s attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan told People “they’re happy for their mom.” For her special day, the bride walked down the aisle in a Versace gown to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and reportedly “cried happy tears” during the ceremony.
News of the pair’s marriage comes after a few (not so) subtle hints from Spears referring to Asghari as her “husband” in a handful of Instagram posts, including her pregnancy announcement. A month after sharing their baby news, the couple revealed that they experienced the loss of their “miracle baby,” later noting that they were “moving forward” with their future.
On Sept. 12, Spears and Asghari announced their engagement via Instagram, exactly two months before the singer’s 13-year conservatorship came to an end. “I can’t f*cking believe it 💍💍💍💍💍💍❣️!!!!!!,” Spears captioned a video showing off her engagement ring. Asghari’s manager also shared the news with People in a statement that read, “The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them.”
Spears and Asghari first met in October 2016 on the set of the singer’s “Slumber Party” music video, which Asghari starred in as her love interest. They made their relationship official on New Year’s Day 2017 when Spears posted a photo of the two on Instagram, and they’ve been attached at the hip ever since. Between Spears’s years-long court battle and the public spectacle that started the #FreeBritney movement, the pair have always stuck together through it all. And now they’re starting a new chapter in their lives!
Congratulations to the couple!
