After a rare red carpet appearance, people are speculating that Britney Spears is engaged. The 37-year-old pop icon stepped out with her 25-year-old model boyfriend Sam Asghari for the Los Angeles premiere of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, stunning in a red Nookie dress, silver choker, and black chunky heels. But the most gasp-inducing part of her ensemble? The diamond ring sparkling on her left finger.
The couple looked smitten as they posed for pictures and showed plenty of PDA on the star-studded red carpet. Spears shared her date night on Instagram with a sweet photo of the couple and the caption, “Our first premiere.” Asghari commented on the post, “My beautiful date.”
Of course, it could just be part her ensemble. The pair have been dating since 2016 and haven’t yet confirmed an engagement, but have been looking madly in love since the start of their relationship. Spears often shares selfies with Asghari, as well as silly videos, the couple’s workouts, and clips of them dancing together.
Not only do Spears and Asghari look happy as ever, but their date night marks Spears’ first red carpet in over a year, further fueling engagement speculation. Perhaps the two have a particular reason to celebrate?
Regardless of whether Spears is engaged, it’s great to see her out and enjoying herself. Earlier this year, the songstress announced she was on hiatus while her father battled health issues. Then, in April, she checked into a mental health treatment facility. The star has had a very public battle with mental health over the years.
In April, a source told E! News, that Asghari could not have been more supportive of Spears. “Sam has stuck by her side throughout all of her recent struggles and knows that this is just a phase in Britney’s life that they will have to adjust to right now,” the source said.
