Britney Spears’ new husband Sam Asghari is a big Manchester City fan
Pop superstar Britney Spears has tied the knot with personal trainer and fitness model Sam Asghari with an intimate at-home ceremony in Los Angeles. The pair showed their big day was a fairy tale come to life as they shared photos and video from their nuptials on Instagram.
Toxic and Slave 4 U singer Britney, 40, was a radiant bride in a white off-the-shoulder Versace dress and a flowing white veil. Britney wrote lovingly: “Fairytales are real.”
Britney and Sam have been together for six years after meeting on the set of Britney’s Slumber Party music video. Sam, 28, will also be a familiar to Fifth Harmony fans, having appeared in the girl band’s Work From Home video as a workman.
Not many fans may be aware that Sam is a major Manchester City fan. In January 2019 he shared a photo of himself in a City kit. And he said with a jokey emoji: “@mancity say hello to your new signing. congrats on your big win #manchestercity.”
Then in December that year he thanked the club for flying him to the UK to watch them play their rivals in the Manchester derby. “A huge thank you to @mancity for flying me out to the UK to witness the biggest game of the year Manchester city Vs Manchester United! Who will be king in Manchester after tomorrow’s game?,” he shared on his Instagram with a video of himself in town.
“Keep an eye out for my posts tomorrow as the Game goes on #football#manchestercity#derby#puma,” he added. Last month he celebrated them being crowned Premier League champions. “@mancity once again Premier league champions May 22,” he cheered.
The wedding ceremony on Thursday was attended by about 60 guests, including Madonna, Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore and Donatella Versace. Sharing her excitement about the day in another post Britney enthused: “Wow !!! Holy holy c***!!! WE DID IT !!! WE GOT MARRIED !!! Gggggeeeeezzzzz!!!
She told her 41 million followers: “”It was the most spectacular day !!! I was so nervous all morning but then at 2:00 pm it really hit me … WE’RE GETTING MARRIED!!! I had a panic attack and then got it together … the crew who created our home into literally a dream castle were fantastic!!!
“The ceremony was a dream and the party was even better!!! So many incredible people came to our wedding and I’m still in shock!!! @drewbarrymore my girl crush and @selenagomez who btw is way prettier in person if that’s possible both came!!! I was speechless … I kissed @madonna again and we danced into the night with @ParisHilton …”
She added: “Thank you @donatella_versace for designing my dress … I felt so beautiful … Thank you also to @StephanieGottlieb @CharlotteTilbury and @sofiatilbury for my jewelry and makeup !!! I think we all fell on the dance floor at least two times !!! I mean come on … we were all VOGUING !!! @SamAsghari I LOVE YOU!!!” And Sam agreed that their wedding was “out of a movie.”
