“Every day he inspires me to be a better person and that makes me feel like the luckiest girl in the world.”
They’ve recently marked their one-year anniversary, with their relationship going from strength to strength over those 12 months.
And it appears as if Britney Spears is Crazy for her Iranian man, Sam Asghari.
Sharing an image of the two to celebrate the milestone on February 5, the Grammy-winning singer paid tribute to her partner of one year.
“Every day he inspires me to be a better person and that makes me feel like the luckiest girl in the world,” Spears wrote alongside the waterfall shot.
But the heartfelt message got us thinking—what do we know about Asghari? In case you’ve been as oblivious during his and Spears’ year-long relationship as us, we’ve pulled together everything you need to know about the man that’s wooed the 36-year-old star.
Who is Sam Asghari?
Born in Tehran in 1994, the now-23-year-old is a personal trainer turned fitness model represented by Wilhelmina Models.
He moved to the US in 2007, and was actually born Hesam (judging by a picture of a personalised birthday cake shared by the Toxic singer last year).
Asghari reads and writes in Farsi, as well as English, and is also an aspiring actor.
He first met Spears on the set of her Slumber Party music video in 2016, where he played the singer-actress’ love interest (talking of music videos, he also starred in Fifth Harmony’s Work From Home).
“We were shooting,” Spears told CBS Radio last year on how she met Asghari.
“We were doing the scene where I was doing the walk scene through the hall to go through the door to go to the bedroom, and we were sitting there and waiting and waiting together for like 20 minutes at a time.
“We were having to be literally stuck there together, so we were basically forced to talk to each other.”
The two swapped numbers on set, but Spears didn’t call him until five months later to arrange a meet-up.
Since then, Asghari’s garnered more than 520,000 followers on his Instagram page, and regularly shares shots of his workouts and modelling gigs.
He also throws in a few references to his celebrity love, recently celebrating the end of her Las Vegas residency.
The two regularly use the L word on their social media posts, so could wedding bells soon be in the air?
