1. Who is Sam Asghari?

Sam was born Hesam Asghari in Tehran, Iran in 1994. He's of Persian heritage. His family moved to the U.S. from Iran together. Sam is a personal trainer and fitness model who appeared on the April 2017 cover of Iron Man magazine. He has more than 623,000 followers on Instagram. He is an aspiring actor. Fans of Fifth Harmony may recognize Sam from their "Work From Home" video in which he played a workman covered in sweat. 

2. How did Sam and Britney meet?

Sam starred in Britney's music video for "Slumber Party," playing the singer's love interest. Britney explained how they met in an interview:

"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..."

In one scene from the video, Britney and Sam stare at each other across a dinner table before Britney crawls across the table to lick spilled milk from Sam. So you could say they got off to a steamy start. 

3. Despite the steamy video, the couple didn't begin to date right away.

Sam and Britney didn't fall right into a relationship after the "Slumber Party" video shoot. During a radio interview in January 2017, the singer admitted she didn't call Asghari until five months later when she found his number in her bag and thought:

" ... I kept his number, and it was so weird  it was like five months later, and I found his number in my bag. I was like, 'He is really cute. This guy is really cute.' So then I called him, and ever since then ... He is just a really fun, funny person."

So, she called him and the rest is history. In November 2016, Asghari posted a picture of the two of them on a sushi date on his Instagram page. This led his followers to wonder if he was dating the "...Baby One More Time" singer. He quickly deleted the photo. In early March 2017, Britney shared a photo of the two on a hike. She captioned it "My baby's birthday." The cat was officially out of the bag. 

Then, in June 2017, Britney told Sam she loved him from the stage during her concert in Taiwan.

4. Are Britney and Sam engaged?

Britney sparked rumors that she and Sam were engaged back in January when some photos of her on the beach in Hawaii with a suspiciously sparkly ring on her left hand surfaced. If the rumors are true, Sam would be Britney's third husband.

She was married for 55 hours in January 2004 to her childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander. She was married to dancer Kevin Federline for three years from 2004-2007. Federline is the father of her sons 12-year-old Sean Preston and 11-year-old Jayden.

5. Sam's sweet #WCW/Woman Crush Wednesday

Sam is so smitten with Britney that he couldn't even wait until Wednesday to post his #WCW/Woman Crush Wednesday on Instagram. On a recent Tuesday, he took to Instagram to post a picture of Britney with the caption, “Not going to wait until tomorrow to express my love for the one that humbles me women crush (not only on Wednesdays) but every day."

Sam also has a soft spot for babies. He posted the photo below on Instagram and captioned it: "Now I know what sleep like a baby means."
