Could Britney Spears soon be welcoming another “baby, one more time”?
The 39-year-old pop star’s boyfriend, Sam Asghari, opened up about the next steps he wants to take in life with Spears.
“My priorities in life are to remain humble and understand where I came from and where I’m going,” Asghari, 27, told Forbes in an interview published Saturday. “I want to take my career to the next step when it comes to acting. I want to take my relationship to the next step, as well. I don’t mind becoming a father. I want to be a young dad.”
Spears recently shared a rare photo of her two teenage sons, 15-year-old Sean and 14-year-old Jayden, whom she shares with ex Kevin Federline. The two were married from 2004 to 2007.
“It’s so crazy how time flies …. My boys are so big now,” Spears captioned the post last week. I’m extremely lucky because my two babies are such gentleman and so kind that I must have done something right !!!!”

Asghari also reflected on how the couple first met: on the set of Spears’ music video for her 2016 song “Slumber Party.” He had already appeared in a video for Fifth Harmony that year and didn’t want to just be known as a music video actor, but decided to throw his hat in the ring after a friend working on the project put him in touch with the creators.
“My girlfriend now at the time, personally she picked my picture and she wanted me to be cast in the music video,” he recalled. “My friend called me and said, ‘I need you to be on it. Trust me, you want to show up.’ I didn’t know who was shooting. It was a secret project. So I showed up because of my friend. I showed up and everything just kicked off from there.”
The couple made their red carpet debut together in 2019 at the premiere for Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.”
A renewed interest in the pop star’s life came last month following The New York Times documentary “Framing Britney Spears,” which examined her mental health challenges, inappropriate treatment by unrelenting media and the discord over her conservatorship, controlled largely by her father, Jamie.
Amid social media uproar and speculation surrounding her wellbeing, she shared in February that she’s focused on being “a normal person.”
Asghari, who was born in Tehran, Iran and moved to the U.S. in 2006, showed support for her on social media in the aftermath, calling out Spears’ father in an Instagram story post last month.
“Now it’s important for people to understand that I have zero respect for someone trying to control our relationship and constantly throwing obstacles our way,” he wrote. “In my opinion, Jamie is a total (expletive). I won’t be going into details because I’ve always respected our privacy but at the same time, I didn’t come to this country to not be able to express my opinion and freedom.”
He also reflected to Forbes on the balance between wanting to share personal moments and being “very protective” of them.
“It’s very important that when you’re happy with your personal life, you want to share it and you want people to see it because you’re proud of it and you want to show it off, but it’s also very important to keep and maintain your privacy because it’s called a personal relationship or life for a reason,” he said.
“I do it authentically. Whether it’s an occasion or a photo or video that I like, I post it on social media but I’m very careful when it comes to my personal life. I’m very protective of that. But at the same time, I think it’s very healthy what you appreciate from your personal life and what you’re proud of.”
