Singer Britney Spears recently took to Instagram to thank Sam Asghari, her boyfriend, for his love and support over the years.

Spears made an Instagram post on Wednesday celebrating Asghari for assisting her through dark times in her life.

“Not only has this cute a**hole been with me through the hardest years of my life but he happens to be an extremely good cook 👨🏽‍🍳! Fast & Furious franchise, don’t miss out on your next star 🌟🏎️👗🤓 !!!!,” Spears captioned the post. The message was accompanied by a selfie of the couple.

Spears met Asghari during the production of the music video for Spears’ song “Slumber Party.” They began dating in 2016 soon after their first meeting.

Asghari has voiced support for the #FreeBritney movement, which aims to free her from her conservatorship. This movement began after Spears accused her father, who is the conservator, of abusing the terms of the agreement.

“I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves,” said Asghari to People. “I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together.”

Asghari has also spoken openly about his future with Spears. He left the possibility of marriage wide open when he spoke to Entertainment Tonight. “This is something that every couple should do. That’s the whole point of a relationship – we are a family,” he explained. “Trust me, if we do ever get married, everybody’s going to know,”

The couple’s prospects for children, however, are currently limited by her conservatorship. She cannot remove an IUD as part of the agreement.

Asghari is a model and personal trainer. He was born in Tehran, Iran and is 27 years old.
