TBH, the term #relationshipgoals is a bit passé — but there is no other way to describe Britney Spears and her hot AF boyfriend, Sam Asghari. Case in point: the 35-year-old pop princess and her much younger beau looked more in love than ever at a Lakers game at LA’s Staples Center on Wednesday, Nov. 29. And while Brit’s two pre-teen sons, Sean Preston, 12, and Jayden James, 11 — whom she shares with ex-husband Kevin Federline — were present, that didn’t stop her from packing on the PDA with 24-year-old Sam.

Aside from Wednesday night's sporting event, the genetically blessed duo often flaunt their affection for one another via social media. Most recently, Britney took to Instagram on Friday, Dec. 1, to share a precious video of herself and Sam smooching outside, and then dancing to Christmas music inside the Grammy winner’s Thousand Oaks, CA, mansion.
For his part, Sam posted a pic of himself and the blonde beauty on Oct. 31. “Love this lioness @britneyspears 🐶 🦁 #happyholloween,” the fitness model captioned the sweet selfie, in which the pair rock matching puppy ears courtesy of a Snapchat filter.
Britney’s romance with Sam has been going strong ever since fall 2016, when she met him on the set of her music video for “Slumber Party,” the second single from her ninth studio album, Glory. That following January, the superstar opened up about falling for Sam (who played her love interest in the sexy clip) during an interview on CBS Radio’s Fast in the Morning With Nathan Fast.
“I think we were at, um…we were shooting. We were doing the scene where I was doing the walk scene through the hall to go through the door to go to the bedroom, and we were sitting there and waiting and waiting together for like 20 minutes at a time,” she explained. “We were having to be literally stuck there together, so we were basically forced to talk to each other.”

Though things were a tad uncomfortable at first, Britney said that she and Sam were eventually able to break the ice when the topic of sushi came up. "He has no idea…I mean, he knows my name but he doesn’t really know me as a person. He's like, 'What is this girl like?' and I have no idea who the hell he is, you know?" she continued. "We started talking about sushi and started talking about things we like and [then said], ‘We should go to sushi one day.’”
It was then that Britney started catching feelings — and decided to take down Sam’s digits. “[We were like], 'Let's do this, let's do this,' and he said, 'OK, I’ll give you my number after the thing,’” she recounted, adding that it took her a while to build up the courage to actually call. “I kept his number, and it was so weird — it was like five months later, and I found his number in my bag. I was like, 'He is really cute. This guy is really cute.' So then I called him, and ever since then, he is just a really fun, funny person.”
