Call me a hopeless romantic, but I kind of thought that part of getting engaged was the whole surprise element. You know … you’re just having a good time and suddenly, they drop to one knee and pull out a box and HOLY SHIT A RING EVERYBODY FREAK OUT! And then you say yes and live happily ever after the end. Well, Britney Spears and her boyfriend Jason Trawick are reportedly getting engaged tonight, and it turns out both of them already know about it, soooooo … surprise? TMZ reports:
Multiple sources who are definitely in the know say Jason’s plans to pop the question tonight … in Las Vegas. We’re told Britney knows they’re getting engaged, so it’s not going to be a big surprise. Sources say Britney’s conservators have given their stamp of approval. The matter will go before the judge in the conservatorship case but it’s virtually certain Brit will get the judge’s sign off. And were told … Jason did it the old fashioned way … by asking Britney’s dad, Jamie Spears, for permission to marry his daughter.
So chances are, the spoiled surprise isn’t really either of their faults. I mean really, Britney can barely even blow her nose without in-depth pictures of the tissue on TMZ and an exclusive interview with the box it came out of on RadarOnline. When you have zero privacy, I guess you just have to roll with it. And hey, at least Jason is insanely hot and actually seems perfectly sane.
UPDATE: Jason popped the question early … Britney tweeted this message earlier this morning … OMG. Last night Jason surprised me with the one gift I’ve been waiting for. Can’t wait to show you! SO SO SO excited!!!! Xxo Plus there’s this confirmation story from Us Weekly …
The pop superstar, 30, is now engaged to her former manager, a source confirms to Us Weekly. Jason Trawick popped the question on Thursday night, his 40th birthday, when he and the I Wanna Go singer shared a romantic private dinner. “Yes, we are engaged,” Trawick later told Access Hollywood, adding that both he and his wife-to-be are “over the moon.”
“This is something they’ve both wanted for a long time,” the source explains to Us. “It’s a way to cement their family. They’re both extremely happy and can’t wait to become man and wife.” The spouses-to-be plan to celebrate their engagement Friday night at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
