Britney Spears recently got engaged to fitness influencer Sam Asghari - and his ex-girlfriend believes he has "hit the jackpot".

The songstress, 39, excitedly took to Instagram earlier this week to show off her new engagement ring, given to her by 27-year-old Sam.

And following their incredible news, Sam's previous partner Mayra Veronica has sent her best wishes to the couple.

Mayra told TMZ : "He finally hit the jackpot! She hit the jackpot too, though. He's extremely supportive, he's a really, really supportive guy, and after all the s**t she's been through, that's what she needs."

"I feel very happy for them. I think she's with the right guy," she added.

"Hollywood, it's so hard to tell, but he’s such a charming, sweet guy that I really hope so for her sake. She’s been through enough."

Mayra and her ex-boyfriend were together back in 2015 - a year before he met Britney on the set of her Slumber Party music video.

Britney and Sam started dating in 2016 and were first romantically linked during filming for the video.

The pop star shared a sweet video of her showing off her ring to her 33.9 million Instagram followers alongside the caption: "I can't f****** believe it," with a host of ring emojis.

She looked shocked and sweetly gave Sam a kiss when he said: "Look at that, do you like it."

She quickly exclaimed: "OMG, yes!"

Sam also shared an image on his account of the pair kissing while the singer held her engagement ring finger up to the camera. He uploaded the post shortly after teasing fans he had the "biggest news".

Sam's manager Brandon Cohen also shared a statement saying he is "proud to celebrate and confirm the engagement".

He said: "The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication and love expressed to them."

Brandon added that the beautiful new ring was designed byNew York City jeweller Roman Malayev.

"He couldn't be happier to be involved and make this one-of-a-kind ring," Brandon continued.

The news comes after Britney recently celebrated a legal victory in the conservatorship that controls her life and career, as dad Jamie agreed to step down and filed to end the conservatorship.

The singer claimed in June that she was not allowed to marry and was forced onto contraception by the conservatorship.

Sam has been a loyal supporter of the Toxic singer throughout and even donned a Free Britney shirt.
