Britney Spears, who is 40, and her new husband, Sam Asghari, who is 28, have been ready for a while to take on the world as a married couple. I mean, she has been calling him her “husband” for several months now. And finally, on June 9, they did the damn thing and got married! Even though her ex-husband, Jason Alexander, tried to crash the wedding, the two are now married.
According to Vanity Fair, Britney wore a Donatella Versace dress when she walked down the aisle at her wedding, which was a small event with only close family and friends. She had the time of her life dancing with Madonna and a few other famous people at the reception.
This is her third wedding, but it is her second marriage. Britney was married to Jason Alexander for only 55 hours in Las Vegas in 2004. That same year, she married Kevin Federline. Sean and Jayden are Brit and Kevin’s boys. After being together for about five years, Britney and Sam announced in September that they were getting married.
Britney’s conservatorship had been the center of her life for 13 years, but her relationship with the personal trainer and model has been “rock solid” since late 2016. Here’s what you need to know about Sam Asghari, Britney’s new husband, and their life together:
Where Did Britney and Sam Meet the First Time?
Their Wedding Ceremony
A source told Page Six that Britney and Sam finally got married on June 9 at Britney’s house in Los Angeles. Only 50 close friends and family members were there.
Britney’s parents, Jamie and Lynne, and her sister, Jamie Lynn, as well as anyone else with the name Jamie or Lynn, were not invited to the party. Page Six says that her 16-year-old son Sean Preston and 15-year-old son Jayden James, whom she has with Federline, were not there. TMZ says, though, that her brother Bryan was there.
Britney put a video of herself and Sam on her Instagram story earlier that day. Brit was holding a glass of champagne and showing off her bejeweled French manicure as they rode in a Rolls Royce. And her dress? Donatella Versace, of course, is said to have made it.
The Wedding List Guest List Was Star-studded.
Reverend Clint Hufft, who also did Paris Hilton’s wedding in 2021, was in charge of the ceremony, and there were some very important people there.
People said that “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley played as Britney walked down the aisle. Us Weekly says that the wedding started at 8:30 p.m. PT and went on for about three hours. During that time, Britney changed her clothes three times.
When it comes to the guest list, this was the party I wish I could have gone to. PEOPLE say that Madonna, Drew Barrymore, Paris Hilton, and Kathy Hilton were all there. “It turned out to be Britney’s best night,” a source told PEOPLE. “She wanted a wedding like a fairy tale, and she got one.” You’re the one who is crying, not me.
Sam Proposed With a Diamond Ring
Sam asked Britney to marry him in September. He used a ring made by New York City jeweler Roman Malay. E! News says that the ring has a round-cut diamond that is four carats. The word “Lioness,” which is Ashgari’s nickname for Britney, is also written on it.
Sam said in a statement, “Every designer I talked to about the ring was great and had great ideas, but I just hit it off with Roman. We really connected on the design, and he was just as excited as I was to make it special, so I chose him.”
All About Sam:
Sam, who is 28 years old, was born in Tehran, Iran, and he and his family lived there until he was 12 years old. Then, Page Six says, he moved to Los Angeles to live with his father. “I had to leave my very close friends and family,” he told Men’s Health. “I knew I was leaving and would never return.”
Sam’s College Time
He’s a personal trainer, sure, but…wow. It’s clear that the man doesn’t mess around when it comes to fitness. In college, he played football. He told Men’s Health, “I was a very manly guy. I played football and went to the police academy.” He played basketball in high school and then at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln until he was kicked off the team and sent to Moorpark College in Los Angeles.
He’s a model.
Sam didn’t want to be a model at first, but his sister told him to give it a shot. He told Men’s Health, “At the time, my Sunday best was basketball shorts.” “My sister told me, ‘I’ll take you to this audition if you just follow me.'”
From there, he has walked down runways, been in Super Bowl ads, and even been in the music video for Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home” and one for Britney Spears.
Britney and Sam have a 13-year age difference.
Even though they are different ages, a source told Us Weekly in February 2018 that Sam and Britney have a lot more in common than her other boyfriends. “He’s a lot of fun.”
He also told ET that his family loves Britney a lot. “We’ve been together for three years, and my sisters and family all love her,” he said. My mom lives in a different country, but she met her when she was here.”
