Is that the sound of wedding bells?
Just two months after announcing their engagement, Britney Spears and Sam Asghari are spurring speculation that they've secretly tied the knot. As the couple head off on vacation to celebrate Britney's upcoming 40th birthday, the "Toxic" singer's fans are up in a frenzy after Sam referred to his love as his "wife."
In an Instagram post shared on Wednesday, Dec. 1, Sam wrote alongside photos of himself with Britney, "I call you Lioness because I admire your relentless strength, I'm inspired by your beautiful heart, I celebrate your smile that lights up my world."
"Everyday is your birthday my queen," he added. "Happy 1st birthday to my wife."
Needless to say, Sam's caption—which also tagged Britney and included a hashtag of her Dec. 2 birthday—raised eyebrows. "wife???? Omg," one fan wrote in the comments section, while another replied, "wait did y'all get married??"
Britney and Sam, who first met in 2016 on the set of the her "Slumber Party" music video, got engaged in September after five years of dating. For the marriage proposal, Sam worked with Roman Malayev, the founder of Forever Diamonds NY founder, to create a 4-carat diamond engagement ring with word "Lioness"—his nickname for Britney—engraved inside the band.
Since becoming a bride-to-be, Britney has been open about her wedding plans. In November, she revealed to fans that Donatella Versace will be the designer of her wedding gown and shared that the fashion icon "is making my dress as we speak."
As for Sam, he also has the big day on his mind. He recently told E! News' Daily Pop that "sooner or later, we're going to get married."
"It's just surreal to live my life and live our life like this," he said, adding, "We're getting ready for a wedding, baby, so get ready."
