Spears and Ashari got engaged days after petition to end conservatorship
The newlyweds got engaged in September, days after Spears’ father, Jamie, filed a petition with a Los Angeles judge seeking an end to conservatorship, a legal arrangement that gave him control of the pop star’s estate since 2008.
Legally, Spears could have married, but under the conservatorship (which ended in November after 13 years), the marriage had to be approved like other major life decisions.

Announcing her engagement in September, Spears shared a video on Instagram showing off her four-carat ring. “I can’t (expletively) believe it,” the “Oops!…I Did It Again” singer captioned the clip with six engagement ring emojis and six exclamation marks to her announcement.
“Look at this, do you like this?” Asghari asked about the ring in the short video, to which Spears replies, “Yes!”
Asghari’s talent manager, Brandon Cohen, confirmed the news in an emailed statement to USA TODAY saying he was “proud to celebrate and confirm the engagement.”
“The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love shown to them,” the statement read.

The couple have kept quiet about the details of the wedding

On the same day, Asghari revealed that they had set a date for their nuptials, but “no one will know until the next day”.
“Our lives have been a real fairy tale. Happy Mother’s Day to you, my future queen,” he wrote on his Instagram Story alongside a photo of the pop star showing off her engagement ring.
In early 2022, Asghari and Spears started saying they had already gotten married. The pop star referred to her significant other as a “husband” in several Instagram posts. In a post shared on April 8, Spears capitalized Asghari as her “husband” and added, “For the first time in my life…I can actually be that girl who can act and talk to others about the how I’m going to get married.”
Asghari and Spears have been a couple for four years after meeting on the set of Spears’ “Slumber Party” music video in 2016. The pair made their red carpet debut together in 2019 at the premiere of “Once Upon A Time” by Quentin Tarantino. At Hollywood.”

Spears was previously married to Jason Alexander, Kevin Federline
Spears has been married twice before, marrying Jason Alexander in Las Vegas in 2004 for 55 hours before the couple quickly had their union called off. That same year, Spears married her assistant dancer Kevin Federline, with whom she shares two sons, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15. Spears filed for divorce in 2006, which was granted the following year.
The singer has already expressed her wish to expand her family with Asghari. During a conservatorship hearing in June 2021, she told a judge she wanted to marry Asghari and have a baby with him during an impassioned plea to end the conservatorship. But Spears said she was not allowed to remove an intrauterine device for birth control or even drive.
In a March birthday tribute to Asghari, Spears doubled down on her desire to have more children. “Happy birthday to my fiancé…I love you so much…I want a family with you…I want everything with you!!!!” she sprang into legend.
A month later, the couple announced they were pregnant, but in May Spears and Asghari took to Instagram, revealing in a joint post that she had suffered a miscarriage.
“It is with our greatest sadness that we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby in early pregnancy,” they wrote on Instagram. “This is a devastating time for any parent.”
