Although it's unclear when the couple will tie the knot, Spears has yearned to start a family with Asghari for some time. During a June testimony about her conservatorship, Spears said that she wanted to marry Asghari and have a baby, but was unable to due to the current circumstances.
"I was told right now in the conservatorship, I'm not able to get married or have a baby, I have an (IUD) inside of myself right now so I don't get pregnant," said Spears in June, according to People. "I wanted to take the (IUD) out so I could start trying to have another baby. But this so-called team won't let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don't want me to have children — any more children." (Related: What You Know About IUDs May Be All Wrong)
Spears, who shares sons Sean Preston, 15, and Jayden James, 14, with ex-husband Kevin Federline, has been under conservatorship since 2008. Essentially, this legal arrangement occurs when a person or persons is given control to manage the affairs of someone who is unable to make their own decisions, as considered by the court. Jodi Montgomery is Spears' current conservator, who oversees her personal matters (such as her caretakers and whom she can visit). The pop star's father, Jamie Spears, is in charge of her financial affairs. (Related: Britney Spears Spoke Out for the First Time Since Her Conservatorship Hearing)
Recently, Spears' father filed a petition to end the 13-year conservatorship. Judge Brenda Penny, who currently presides over the case, would have to approve the move, however.
Given the recent news, Spears and her fans are certainly celebrating. Congrats to the couple!
