A timeline of Britney's and Sam Asghari's relationship
Britney Spears has announced she and her fiancé Sam Asghari are expecting a baby. Let's take a look back at their relationship.
Britney took to Instagram yesterday to announce the exciting news that she is expecting her third child.
She joked in the caption that she and Sam first thought she was "food pregnant" before taking a test, confirming that she will be having her third child.
Also taking to Instagram Sam said; "Fatherhood is something I have always looked forward to and I don’t take it lightly. It is the most important job I will ever do."
We are over the moon for the happy couple, so let's see where the romance all started.
Britney and Sam meet on the set of her music video (2016)
The pair first met in 2016 on the set of Britney's Slumber Party music video, where Sam played the role of her love interest.
In an interview with Men's Health, Sam explained how nervous he was to meet such a big star and that he "had butterflies" from the get-go.
However, the two quickly hit it off over a mutual love of sushi and arranged a date. Britney said after finding his number in her bag, she decided to call him.
"I found his number in my bag. I was like, 'He is really cute. This guy is really cute," she said on a radio show in 2017.

Sam supports Britney through her legal battles (2021)
Sam, who is a successful actor in his own right, has also supported Britney through some seriously tough times in recent years.
He stuck by her during her recent legal battle to have her conservatorship, imposed by her father, successfully removed.

"I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her in following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves," he said.
