Britney Spears and Sam Asghari will soon be husband and wife.

On 9 June, it was reported that the pop star will marry her fitness instructor fiancé, whom she has been dating for five years. According to People, the two will be wed during an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles today, with 60 guests in attendance.

The outlet also reported that Spears will be wearing a wedding dress designed by Versace.

The star-studded guests reported to attend the nuptials include Madonna, Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Kate Hudson, and Gwyneth Paltrow, according to sources close to the couple. However, her teenage sons Sean Preston and Jayden James — who she shares with ex-husband Kevin Federline — will not be by their mother’s side at her wedding.

“Although the boys will not be in attendance, Kevin and the boys are happy for Britney and wish her and Sam all the best going forward,” said Federline’s attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, per TMZ. Her brother Bryan is expected to attend the wedding ceremony — but her mother, father, and sister Jamie Lynn Spears will not be there.

Wedding preparations are already underway for the couple at their Los Angeles home. In pictures published by the Daily Mail, workers were seen setting up a large white tent, presumably where the reception will take place. Trucks lined the driveway to her home, while a separate black tent was also being set up on the property.

Spears, 40, announced her engagement to Asghari, 28, in September 2021. Earlier this year, Spears referred to Asghari as her “husband” on Instagram, leading fans to speculate that the pair got married in secret. But her fiancé confirmed later on that the two are not yet married, as he wished Spears a happy Mother’s Day and teased that a wedding date has been set.

“Our lives has [sic] been a real-life fairy tale,” he wrote on Instagram. “Happy Mother’s Day to my soon-to-be queen.

“Also the big day has been set,” he added, revealing that “nobody will know until the day after.”

The couple first met in October 2016 on the set of Spears’s “Slumber Party” music video. Since then, Spears and Asghari have shared sweet moments from their relationship on social media, including vacation getaways and date nights.

The Iranian-born model has also been praised for supporting Spears throughout her conservatorship, which ended in November 2021.

In April, Spears shared with fans that she and Asghari were expecting their first child together, only find out weeks later that she had suffered a miscarriage.

“It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy,” she wrote in a touching message on Instagram.

The singer added: “This is a devastating time for any parent. Perhaps we should have waited to announce until we were further along, however, we were overly excited to share the good news.

Spears was previously married to ex-husband Kevin Federline for two years from 2004 to 2006. She eventually filed for divorce from the former dancer, citing irreconcilable differences. The pair share two children together – Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15.
