Britney Spears and Boyfriend David Lucado Go Public!

Holding hands makes things official, right?

Britney Spears stepped out with new beau David Lucado on Friday near her home in Thousand Oaks, Calif., and the two were smiling ear-to-ear as they engaged in a little PDA.

The "Scream and Shout" singer has been quietly seeing Lucado since Valentine's Day. The new couple has been on numerous outings together, including golf dates and trips to the tanning salon. Lucado, who does field research for a law firm, has also been seen spending time with Spears' two sons, Sean and Jaden.

Things seem to be going well for Spears personally and professionally!

This week the 31-year-old singer shot a cover for Shape magazine (she celebrated by getting KFC after) and is also reportedly close to signing her residency deal to perform in Las Vegas.
