Britney Spears has announced engagement to her long-time boyfriend Sam Asghari on Instagram.

The singer posted a video of them showing off the ring. In the video, Asghari asked Spears “Do you like it?” Spears happily says: “Yes!” Meanwhile, on his Instagram, Asghari shared a close-up shot of Spears’ engagement ring.

The couple fell in love after meeting on the sets of the singer’s Slumber Party music video in 2016. Paris Hilton, who has always been one of Spears’ closest friends, congratulated the couple in the comments section: “Congratulations, love! So happy for you! Welcome to the club!” she wrote.

Spears is fighting a legal battle to end her 13-year conservatorship, which controls both her personal life and finances. The singer has revealed that the terms of the arrangement are preventing her from marrying Asghari or having more children. The conservatorship arrangement was imposed in 2008 when concerns were raised over the singer’s mental health.

Last week, Britney Spears father, Jamie Spears, filed papers in a Los Angeles court to end the conservatorship. A court hearing is scheduled for 29 September.

Asghari’s manager, Brandon Cohen, confirmed the news of the engagement to People magazine. “The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them,” he said.

Earlier this year, in an interview with Forbes, Sam Asghari said he looks forward to having kids soon: “I want to take my career to the next step when it comes to acting. I want to take my relationship to the next step, as well. I don’t mind becoming a father. I want to be a young dad.”
