The couple announced their engagement in September, after more than four years of dating. Asghari and Spears met in October 2016 on the set of her ‘Slumber Party’ music video, in which he starred as her love interest.
A source previously told People magazine that “Sam has been Britney’s rock for years.”
“He makes sure that she eats well and works out,” the source said at the time.
“She leans on him for everything. He works and has his own life too, but is around as much as he can,” the source added.
Asghari has also previously opened up about his relationship with Spears.
“I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her by following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves,” Asghari told People magazine 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,” he added.
