Britney Spears‘ boyfriend Sam Asghari sent her fans into a frenzy after photos of an impressive diamond ring appeared back-to-back on his Instagram Story on Friday.

Asghari also encouraged his followers to ‘calm down’ in the text post shared to his Instagram Story.
The happy couple initially met on the set of a music video in 2016 and have been going strong as a pair ever since then.
Earlier this month, Asghari was notably spotted shopping for rings at a Cartier store in Beverly Hills.
According to Page Six, the social media personality made several rounds in the jewelry shop and was seen taking a photo of a particular item.

Asghari and Spears initially met on the set of the music video for her song Slumber Party, in which he portrayed her love interest.
Before she became involved with her current partner, the singer notably married her childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander in 2004, although the marriage was annulled just over two days after it occurred.
She later tied the knot with dancer Kevin Federline that same year after they dated for a period of three months.
The former couple welcomed sons Sean and Jayden before they separated and dissolved their union in 2007.

A source recently spoke to the media outlet and noted that Asghari is looking to put a ring on the singer’s finger in the near future.
‘Britney and Sam are not engaged yet, but he has been talking about popping the question more and more lately,’ they said.
The insider claimed that Sam is planning on sparing no expense when he asks the singer to marry him, stating: ‘Sam wants to spoil Britney with a very special, over-the-top and meaningful proposal when the time is right.’
The source went on to express that the dancer was planning on starting a family with the hitmaker and stated that she might also be interested in the idea.

‘He dreams of one day becoming a dad too, and Britney, of course, has always wanted to have more kids, especially now that hers are getting older,’ they said.
The insider also spoke about Asghari’s views regarding his partner’s controversial conservatorship and noted that her father is not in his good graces.
‘Sam hates seeing Britney not be able to make decisions for herself and frankly doesn’t care for her dad because of it,’ they stated.
They added: ‘even though they have wanted to take the next step for a while now, Britney and Sam know it would be so much easier to do if she weren’t under the restraints she’s under.’
However, the source concluded by noting that the couple’s future was bright, stating: ‘things are steadily progressing toward an engagement, that’s for sure.’
