Sam was born in Tehran, Iran, and migrated to the US with his father when he was 12. 

He told Variety his father sacrificed a ‘comfortable living where he was doing really well financially’ and became a tow truck driver in the States to better his family. 

The pair moved to Southern California and his three sisters eventually joined them.

He told the Men’s Health last year: ‘I had to leave my friends and family who I was very close with, and I knew I was moving away and never coming back.’

Asghari speaks fluent Farsi and has previously posted videos of him teaching Spears how to say ‘I love you’ in the language. 

As well as acting Sam has a keen interest in sports and played American football at high school.

Asghari joined his school’s football team and later participated in a football program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, but was cut before his freshman year. He went on to play for Los Angeles’s Moorpark College. 

Later in life he went on to start up his business Asghari Fitness, which offers members personalized training programs and customized meal plans.

Multi-talented Sam has also dabbled in a spot of modelling and walked his first runway show in Palm Springs at 21. 

After making a name for himself he appeared in a Super Bowl ad for Toyota Prius and had a small part in Fifth Harmony’s Work from Home music video. 

Later he landed a part on Spears’s music video for Slumber Party where he exchanged numbers with the star – and the rest in history. 

Sam didn’t have modeling dreams initially, but he says his sister encouraged him to try it. ‘At the time, my Sunday best was basketball shorts,’ he told Page Six.

‘My sister said, ‘I will take you to this audition, just come with me.’

Sam is also ambitious about his acting career and has landed roles in TV show Black Monday, feature film Can You Keep A Secret? and HBO Max’s American comedy-drama Hacks. 

He is currently managed by Brandon Cohen of BAC Talent. 

Speaking to Variety, he said: ‘Action is something that I want to do — action, drama, thriller — that’s a genre that I want to really get into. But if you can do comedy, you can do anything.’

While her brother Bryan is slated to be present, her parents Jamie and Lynne Spears, and sister Jamie Lynn are not expected to attend, the outlet reported.

Insiders told the site that it was not immediately clear who will give Spears away at the altar, according to the outlet.

The Grammy-winning pop star and Asghari were seen in a social media clip she posted to Instagram Stories on Wednesday in which they were riding in a Rolls-Royce.

In the clip, Spears sipped champagne and spoke in what appeared to be an English accent as she said she enjoyed riding in the elegant vehicle and felt sophisticated with jewels on her nails.

Asghari and Spears got engaged in September of 2021, and he was seen looking for rings shortly thereafter.

The Forever Diamonds NY ring features a 4-carat round brilliant stone in a platinum cathedral setting, and is enhanced with a floating solitaire design – it was designed by Founder and Master Jeweler Roman Malayev.

Sam had his pet name for Britney, ‘Lioness,’ engraved on the inside. 

Britney’s fiancé Sam said: ‘Every designer I spoke with about the ring was amazing with great ideas, but I just clicked with [designer] Roman – we really connected on the design and he was as excited as I was to make it special – that’s why I chose him’.

Designer Roman said: ‘We are thrilled to congratulate Britney and Sam on their recent engagement. We couldn’t feel more honored to create this ring for such a special couple. Their journey together has touched people around the world and we’re so excited to be a part of their forever’.

At the time the pop star revealed the happy news via Instagram on Sunday, sharing a smiling video of her flashing her custom four carat Forever Diamonds NY engagement ring while fiancé Sam peeked in from the side.

Overwhelmed with excitement, Spears wrote: ‘I can’t f***ing believe it!!!’

It came not long after news that her father Jamie Spears was moving to end her financial conservatorship – a ruling which Britney previously revealed stopped her from getting married or having children with Sam. 

Britney’s news marked a momentous moment in her legal battle, as back in June, while trying to be freed from her father’s control, revealed in a court testament that she was not allowed to wed under her ruling. 

She said: ‘I want to be able to get married and have a baby. I was told right now in the conservatorship I am not able to get married or have a baby.’

Sam’s manager Brandon Cohen confirmed the news via a statement shortly after the lovebirds both posted on their Instagram accounts.

‘The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them,’ He said, adding that Spears’ new ring was designed by N.Y.C. jeweler Roman Malayev. 

The bespoke design features a four-carat round brilliant stone in a platinum cathedral setting, and is enhanced with a floating solitaire design and has pavé detailing on the bridge.

‘He couldn’t be happier to be involved and make this one-of-a-kind ring,’ added Cohen.

The celebrity couple have also enjoyed a series of luxury getaways in the months since, as they have been seen in Hawaii, Las Vegas and opulent Mexican resorts in Cabo San Lucas and Cancun.

It was not immediately clear what Spears would wear in her walk down the aisle, though she and Asghari were seen meeting with Donatella Versace less than three months ago.
