In August, Spears praised her now-fiancé on Instagram for helping her through the "hardest years" of her life. "Not only has this cute asshole been with me through the hardest years of my life but he happens to be an extremely good cook 👨🏽🍳!" Spears wrote, who has fought to end her 13-year conservatorship this year. "Fast & Furious franchise, don't miss out on your next star 🌟🏎️👗🤓 !!!!" The Iranian-born actor opened up in an interview with Forbes in March about the beginning of his relationship with Spears and admitted he was ready to take the next step in his career — and relationship. "My priorities in life are to remain humble and understand where I came from and where I'm going," he told Forbes at the time. "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 gave a cute shoutout to his "dad" vibes in a series of hiking pics shared on Instagram in July. "@SamAsghari looks like such a dad in these pics 😂😂😂," she captioned the post. Following Spear's explosive court hearing in June, a source told PEOPLE that Asghari was the singer's "rock." "Sam has been Britney's rock for years. He makes sure that she eats well and works out," the source said about Spears' boyfriend. "She leans on him for everything. He works and has his own life too, but is around as much as he can."
