Britney Spears and Sam Asghari are set to be man and wife today, gossip website TMZ has reported.
The pop superstar, 40, and the fitness trainer, 28, will marry in Los Angeles on Thursday (June 9) in a fairly intimate wedding attended by around 60 guests of those in their close circle. The “Stronger” singer will be wearing a dress by Versace, insiders say.
Their nuptials come nearly nine months after the couple announced their engagement. Last month, Asghari teased fans by revealing that the couple have already set a date writing to his Instagram Stories at the time, “Our lives have been a real life fairytale. Happy Mother’s Day to you my soon-to-be queen. Also, the big day has been set! But nobody will know until the day after.” Seems like we know the day of, but good effort, Sam!
Spears and Asghari were first romantically linked after they met on the set of the singer’s “Slumber Party” music video in 2016. They took nearly “five months” to reconnect after her video shoot, Spears said in 2017. “I was like, ‘He was really cute, this guy was really cute,’ so I called him,” Spears recalled about digging up his phone number. “He’s just a really fun, funny person.”
Back in May, Spears teased the progress of her wedding planning on Instagram, sharing a snap of her veil.
Sources have previously told PEOPLE that the Iranian-born actor has “been Britney’s rock for years,” saying last June that “She leans on him for everything.”
“I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves,” he told PEOPLE in February. “I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together.”
