LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Britney Spears and Jason Trawick are about to make it official!
Jason confirmed to Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush that the pair will soon be headed down the aisle.
“Yes, we are engaged,” Jason told Billy on Friday.
The 40-year-old added that he is “over the moon, as [is] she.”
Jason revealed he popped the question in a very traditional manner (down one on knee), and added that Britney’s sons, 6-year-old Sean Preston and Jayden James, 5, were on hand to witness the happy proposal.
Britney seemed to hint at the engagement news on her Facebook page on Friday morning.
“OMG. Last night Jason surprised me with the one gift I’ve been waiting for. Can’t wait to show you!” she wrote. “SO SO SO excited!!!! Xxo”
Jason initially began working with Britney as her TV manager (while the star was still married to Kevin Federline), a job he gave up in 2009 after their relationship became romantic.
In October, Britney dropped her “Criminal” music video, in which her now-fiance plays her hero, saving the star from an abusive man at who slaps the pop star at a highbrow party.
The modern-day “Bonnie and Clyde” musical adventure is filled with various criminal acts intermixed with steamy shower scenes, and culminates in a massive slow-motion shootout with the police as Britney and Jason lock lips in a blaze of bullets, then escape through the streets of London.
The impending nuptials will be the third time the pop princess has said, “I do.”
Britney famously wed childhood friend Jason Alexander in January 2004 in a Las Vegas marriage that was annulled within 55 hours.
The “Till The World Ends” singer married Kevin Federline later that year, but the two divorced in 2007.
