Britney Spears and Sam Asghari have made it official. The couple married on Thursday, June 9 in a ceremony at their majestic Thousand Oaks home in Los Angeles.
The singer met the actor and fitness expert in October of 2016 on the set of her “Slumber Party” music video when Sam was cast as her love interest. His photo was one of the many that the star had to sift through and select from. She chose him as soon as she laid eyes on him. “I did not have to audition,” he has said. “It was a direct book.”
A few months passed, then Britney found Sam’s number in her bag. “I was like, ‘He is really cute. This guy is really cute,” she told a radio host in 2017. “So then I called him, and ever since then…he is just a really fun, funny person.”
Britney made their relationship Instagram official on New Year’s Day 2017, posting a photo of her and Sam at dinner. They’ve gone on to make many tandem workout videos together. “The exercises, I come up with them, but the videos are because of my better half. She’s the video director,” Sam has said. “It’s a very fun thing, and I look back at them and smile.”
The couple got engaged in September of 2021 when Sam proposed with a classic 4-carat round brilliant cut diamond solitaire in a platinum cathedral setting by Roman Malayev. Sam had “Lioness”—his special nickname for Britney—engraved inside the band.
In April of 2022, the couple let fans know they were expanding their family, announcing that Britney was pregnant. But one month later, the pair shared the sad news that Britney had had a miscarriage, writing on Instagram: “Our love for each other is our strength. We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family…”
To plan their wedding, the couple sat down with celebrity event producer Jeffrey Best of Best Events. “We really wanted to make this a small and beautiful moment with family and friends,” Britney tells Vogue. “We wanted warm and feminine colors including blush, white, cream, and gold, and a lot of various shades of pinks, blush, and reds.” Florals were by Marks Garden and looked as though they’d been plucked from the pages of a fairytale.
