Their connection initially sparked on the set of Spears’ “Slumber Party” music video in 2016. Although they remain connected on Instagram, their engagement was publicly revealed on September 12, 2021, precisely two months after the conclusion of the singer’s 13-year conservatorship. The couple took their vows on June 9, 2022, in a small-scale ceremony in Los Angeles, attended by 60 guests.
