Britney Spears is officially a bride-to-be.
On Sunday (September 12), the pop titan announced that Sam Asghari, her boyfriend of five years, had proposed to her with a ring designed by Roman Malayev from Forever Diamonds NY. However, the ring comes with a touching detail as it was designed to include an engraving with the word "Lioness" on the inside of the band, Asghari's longtime nickname for Spears.
"Every designer I spoke with about the ring was amazing with great ideas, but I just clicked with Roman. We really connected on the design and he was as excited as I was to make it special," Asghari said in a statement of the 4-carat ring. "That’s why I chose him."
"I can't f*cking believe it," the entertainer wrote in her caption for the post. Meanwhile, Asghari's announcement on his account featured a different kind of approach as Spears offered the camera the ring in a flipping off the bird sort of way. It's likely a reference to her 13-year conservatorship, which reportedly prohibits her from legally getting married without the permission of her father, Jamie Spears. He recently filed a petition to end the conservatorship.
If you've been following Spears, you know that the pop titan met the actor on the set of her music video for "Slumber Party" in October 2016.
