New year, new beau?

Pop star Britney Spears was spotted ringing in the New Year with rumored boyfriend Sam Asghari, making it Instagram official after enjoying laughs in between dinner at Catch LA. Spears and Asghari noshed on New Year’s Eve specials, surf & turf skewers and the oven-roasted dorade, a source tells PEOPLE. Throughout the night, the couple seemed cozy and in great spirits leading up to a midnight kiss.

“Happy New Year,” the pop icon, 35, wrote in a sweet Instagram post showing Asghari wish his arm around her shoulder.

The two first met on the set of Spears’ “Slumber Party” music video, and have been fueling romance rumors ever since. Late last month, the singer and the model stepped out for a dinner date at Japanese restaurant Gyu-Kaku in Los Angeles, where Spears was spotted breaking out in laughter as she walked alongside Asghari. At the time, a source told PEOPLE they had only been on a few dates and were just getting to know each other.

In late November, the duo kept people guessing about their relationship when Asghari — who has also starred in Fifth Harmony‘s “Work from Home” music video — posted a now-deleted photo of himself cozied up to Spears while out at a restaurant.

As for the seriousness of the relationship? Spears — who broke up with TV producer Charlie Ebersol in June 2015 — recently said on The Jonathan Ross Show she had no interest in dating.

“A lot of men are about games,” she said. “It’s just the mind game with guys, the calling back and texting. It’s just too much. It’s silly. I’m not looking for men right now. I’m really happy with myself.”
