Sam Asghari is a firm beliver that fiancée’s Britney Spears’ third pregnancy should have happened a lot sooner.
“Yeah, I mean, this should have happened three years ago, to be honest with you,” the actor told BBC Persian in an interview conducted before the singer revealed her pregnancy earlier this week.
“When you’re in a relationship with someone that you’re truly in love with, you want to recreate,” Asghari continued. “And this is something that I want to do.”
This past Monday, Britney, 40, surprised the world by announcing on Instagram, “So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby.”
Asghari, 28, later confirmed the good news in his own post to Instagram.
“Marriage and kids are a natural part of a strong relationship filled with love and respect,” he captioned an image of a lion, lioness and their cub.
“Fatherhood is something i have always looked forward to and i don’t take lightly. It is the most important job i will ever do.”
The soon-to-be parents met in 2016 when Asghari played Spears’ love interest in her “Slumber Party” music video. Britney went on to accept a proposal from the personal trainer-turned-model in September 2021 after nearly five years together.
Asghari did not leave Spears’ side as she pursued an end to her nearly 14-year conservatorship, which was finally terminated in November 2021.
“I can only speak on my reaction and it was phenomenal to see how everybody was so supportive and the whole world was engaged in it in a sense,” he told BBC Persian of the worldwide support Spears received throughout her legal battle.
“I think people relate and it kind of unites people in a way, you know, as far as all these divisions that we have going on and not only in this country but globally,” he continued.
“But I think people also like to unite in a way.”
Britany — who shares sons Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, with ex-husband Kevin Federline — previously shared how her estranged father and former conservator, Jamie Spears, forbid her from having another child by forcing her to have an IUD contraceptive inserted against her will.
After she was freed from her oppressive conservatorship, Britney told her fans on Instagram, “I’m thinking about having another baby !!! I wonder if this one is a girl … she’s on her toes reaching for something … that’s for sure !!!!”
