Britney Spears has been with her current boyfriend, actor and personal trainer Sam Asghari, for almost two years. And in a new interview with Men’s Health, Asghari talks about their relationship for the first time-and how it was a very last-minute call from his agent that led him to meet Spears in the first place.
Asghari appeared with Britney in her November 2016 “Slumber Party” video - and look, their chemistry was obvious from the get-go. Asghari says it was all natural too, because he had very little time to prepare! “I got a call at midnight [the day before the shoot],” he said. “I don’t know if it’s some sort of a blessing or just meant to be.”
Asghari admitted he was nervous to be in Britney’s presence, and honestly, who wouldn’t be? He even tried to joke around with her at first, but couldn’t pull it off. “She said, ‘Hi, I’m Britney,' and I said, ‘I’m sorry. What’s your name again?’” he said. “I tried to be funny. I don’t think anybody got it.”
But something clicked, because the two exchanged phone numbers and went out for sushi later on. “After the video came out, nobody knew we were dating,” he said. “[But] I don’t think [she or I] had the intention to just be friends.” (Spears confirmed their relationship with a coupled-up Instagram photo in January 2017.)
And they didn't plan to just be gym buddies either, although they now frequently post couples' workout videos on Instagram. “Working out together is always nice... The exercises, I come up with them, but she’s the video director,” Asghari said. “It’s a very fun thing, and I look back at them and smile.” Also, his favorite workout track? Spears' "Stronger," naturally.
Asghari had nothing but sweet things to say about Britney. “She motivates me more than anyone. It’s crazy how I can be humbled by a person like her. If I could be that humble when I’m that high in life, that would be the best thing,” he said. “I grew up with three sisters, and my personality is just to be a supportive person for my family and she’s family. I’m always going to support her. She is another blessing that happened to me.”
