After popping the question to Britney Spears Sunday, Sam Asghari has assured fans — and some fellow celebrities — that he and his new fiancée will be signing an "ironclad" prenuptial agreement.

In an Instagram story posted Monday, the actor, 27, said that he and Spears, 39, would be protecting their personal assets before tying the knot.

"Thank you to everyone who is concerned about the prenup. Of course, we're getting an ironclad prenup to protect my Jeep and shoe collection in case she dumps me one day," he joked along with two crying-laughing emojis.

While Asghari didn't mention any concerned fans specifically, Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer urged Spears to get a prenup on Instagram, where she commented on the singer's post announcing her exciting engagement news.

Asghari and Spears' engagement comes not long after a source told PEOPLE in June that the pair was ready for a future together.

"He's ready for marriage and kids with Britney and is serious about the relationship. She wants to take that next step and have that full life with him," the source said. "As a couple they've hidden how they've really felt even from people close to them because they were anxious and scared, but now it's all out there."

Spears previously thanked Asghari for helping her get through the "hardest years of my life," in an August Instagram post. Now, the pop star is thrilled that she's headed down the aisle with Asghari.

"Britney is ecstatic," a source told PEOPLE Sunday.
