Britney Spears’s engagement ring has been engraved with the word ‘Lioness’.
Excuse us while we weep.
The Toxic singer announced on Sunday that she is engaged to Sam Asghari after almost six years together, and it’s been revealed the 27-year-old fitness trainer helped design her stunning diamond ring in collaboration with Forever Diamonds NY.
Sam spent months looking for the perfect ring and worked closely with the company’s founder and master jewellery, Roman Malayev, to create the piece of jewellery he was looking for.
He said in a statement: ‘Every designer I spoke with about the ring was amazing with great ideas, but I just clicked with 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.’
The actor, who met Britney on the set of her 2016 Slumber Party video, chose a four-carat brilliant round stone in a platinum cathedral setting, and added extra touches such as pavé detailing on the bridge and flush set diamonds on the prongs and basket.
In a very cute touch, Sam also engraved his nickname for the 39-year-old pop star on the inside of the band.
Britney is said to be delighted of his choice of ring, with a source telling E! News: ‘Sam had it planned out that today would be the day he was going to propose to Britney. He had the ring and couldn’t wait any longer. He proposed to Britney at her home with a solitaire diamond by Roman Malayev.
‘Britney was ecstatic. She’s wanted this for a long time and her dream finally came true. They are celebrating at the house and enjoying this day together just the two of them.’
Britney revealed her engagement news in an Instagram video in which she flaunted her new jewellery.
She captioned the post: ‘I can’t f**believe it [six ring and one heart emojis] !!!!!! (sic).’

Sam shared a separate photo of the ring and him and Britney kissing on his account.
His manager, Brandon Cohen, said he was ‘proud to celebrate and confirm the engagement’, adding: ‘The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them.’
As well as support, dedication and love, there was plenty of advice in the Instagram comments from fans, urging Britney – who is worth an estimated $60million (£43m) – to get a prenup.

Octavia Spencer was among those doling out sage advice, commenting: ‘Make him sign a prenup.’
Sam seemed to agree, joking on his Instagram stories: ‘Thank you everyone who is concerned about the prenup! Of course we’re getting iron clad prenup to protect my jeep and shoe collection in case she dumps me one day.’
This will be Sam’s first marriage and Britney’s third; the Baby One More Time star was married to childhood friend Jason Alexander for 55 hours in 2004 after they got married in Las Vegas, and she married Kevin Federline later that year.
The pair had two sons together, Sean, who is 16 tomorrow, and Jayden, 15, before they divorced in 2007.
