Britney Spears and Sam Asghari arrive at the premiere of Sony Pictures' "One Upon A Time...In Hollywood" at the Chinese Theatre on July 22, 2019 in Hollywood, Calif.

Britney Spears is one proud fiancée after she gushed over Sam Asghari's new photo from his Men's Health interview but poked fun at his proposal being "way overdue."

The superstar couple, who have been dating since 2016 when they met on the set of her "Slumber Party" music video, announced their engagement Sunday, when Spears showed off a sparkling engagement ring on Instagram. She took to the social media platform once more on Monday (Sept. 13) to share a photo from Asghari's latest photo in Men's Healthwhich features the 27-year-old Iranian-American personal trainer-turned-actor floating mid-air above a pool.

"Words can’t even say how shocked I am … geez although the a--hole was way overdue !!!!" she teased in the caption. "It was definitely worth the wait …. yes world … that beautiful f---ing man in that picture is MINE !!! I’m so blessed it’s insane !!!!"

Asghari admitted underneath the picture of himself in the comments: "Wayyyyyyy overdueee." He told Men's Health on Monday about life at home with Spears, although he made a point not to discuss the conservatorship that has controlled the pop superstar's life and career for the last 13 years.

"I just want her to be happy. If something makes her happy, I’ll do it. I’m not going to argue. What’s that saying? 'Happy wife, happy life,'" he said of Spears, whom he refers to in the interview as "my girl."
