Britney Spears’ boyfriend, Sam Asghari, cracked some jokes with a paparazzo congratulating him on his rumored engagement, sarcastically saying that he and the pop star have already wed.
“People don’t know but we’ve been married for about five years,” Asghari, 27, quipped outside a Los Angeles car dealership Wednesday (via TMZ). “We secretly got married in Hawaii. That’s one of the stories that I don’t know, but I see it on newspapers.”
He then flashed a grin before adding, “Yeah, we have twins.”
Rumors that Asghari proposed to Spears during their recent trip to Hawaii started after the “Womanizer” singer was seen wearing a large rock on her left ring finger upon their return.
Spears, 39, expressed during a conservatorship hearing last month that she would like to get married and have more children, but said her longtime legal arrangement forbids it and even forces her to use birth control.
“I want to have the real deal. I want to be able to get married and have a baby. I was told right now under the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby,” she said.
Spears is mom to sons Sean, 15, and Jayden, 14, with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
“I have an [IUD] inside of myself right now so I don’t get pregnant,” she also said. “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.”
Back in March, Asghari also shared that he’s ready for a family with his superstar girlfriend of five years.
“My priorities in life are to remain humble and understand where I came from and where I’m going,” the trainer and model shared in an interview with Forbes. “I want to take my career to the next step when it comes to acting. I want to take my relationship to the next step, as well. I don’t mind becoming a father. I want to be a young dad.”
