Sam Asghari, Britney Spears’ fiancé, revealed that he nearly ruined his marriage proposal! The fitness model, 28, proposed to the “Toxic” singer, 40, in September, but just days before, a photo of a round brilliant cut diamond ring engraved with the word “Lioness,” Sam’s nickname for her, surfaced on social media.
Sam, it turns out, did take the photo in question, but posting it to Instagram was a complete mistake. “A day before the proposal…I went to send it [a video of the ring on Instagram] to my sister, but I accidentally posted it for a few seconds,” he explained to Access Hollywood‘s Mario Lopez, referencing his sister Fay Asghari.
“So the whole world got to see the ring…it was all over the news,” he explained. At the time, Sam claimed he had been “hacked” on social media.
He told Mario he “covered it up real quick” to Brit, and said he was “still looking around” for the perfect ring. “It’s a beautiful ring, made for a princess, but also from a hardworking man,” he said of the exquisite ring, designed by Forever Diamonds NY.
Britney and Sam both took to Instagram to confirm their happy news on Sept. 12. The Crossroads star was beaming with joy as she held up the ring for the camera next to Sam, writing “can’t f***ing believe it!!!!!!”

Sam revealed that the proposal was very extravagant, with no detail overlooked for the pop star. “It was very extravagant and unexpected.” I did it the best way I could, but it’s something you have to keep a secret. “There are some things you must keep between us,” he teased Mario.
The couple has yet to tie the knot, but Britney announced earlier this month that she was expecting their first child — and her third. “She’s incredible, man…we’re both so excited and thrilled,” Sam said in the interview.
He stated that he doesn’t want to know the gender of their child, but that it would ultimately be “up to” Britney to know. the pop star also has two sons, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15.
