The 30-year-old singer accepted a marriage proposal from her former agent-turned-boyfriend Jason Trawick on Thursday, which also happened to be his 40th birthday. Having changed her status to "engaged" on Facebook, the couple celebrated their impending nuptials and Trawick's birthday in Vegas.
Access Hollywood reports that Spears and Trawick, who have been dating since 2009, stowed their things at Planet Hollywood before heading off for dinner and then partying at Chateau Nightclub, where paparazzi snapped pics of Spears' 3-carat rock.

Pop star extraordinaire Britney Spears hit the big 3-0 today. (And we'll admit that makes us feel a smidge old.)
The singer is still as big of a pop star as she was more than a decade ago, following the release of her debut album "...Baby One More Time" at the age of 17.
Since then, fame and celebrity has taken Britney Jean for something of a bumpy ride.

After a few teases and a handful of controversy, Britney Spears has tweeted a link to the video for her single "Criminal."
Some in the U.K. were not pleased with her wielding a firearm, but there are more fiery things happening in the clip. After a brief acting interlude (why, yes, Britney, we DO remember "Crossroads"!) and a perfume promo, her real-life man Jason Trawick saves Spears from her awful significant other, and Spears runs off with the criminally-minded Clyde to her Bonnie.
As she croons "Mama I'm in love with a criminal," we see Spears brandish her weapon in a robbery and then find herself in a shower with Trawick. Till the cops come knocking, indeed.
Have you seen the video? What'd you think?

Britney Spears accidentally called beau Jason Trawick her husband on a radio show last week, E! reports. Does this mean a wedding is in the works?
During a promo stop on U.K. radio station KISS FM last week, Britney, 29, discussed spending time with her boyfriend of two years (and her talent agent) and her sons, Preston, 6, and Jayden, 5.
Nervously wringing her hands throughout the interview, Brit talked about son Jayden’s recent Spiderman and Batman-themed birthday party.

Britney Spears has drawn ire from British officials after brandishing a fake gun in a music video shoot near London. Local politicians want an apology from the pop star for “promoting gun violence,” reports MTV.
In the video for her upcoming single “Criminal,” Spears runs out of a convenience store waving a fake pistol, accompanied by fiance Jason Trawick, who totes a duffel bag.
The controversial Bonnie and Clyde-esque scene was shot in the London neighborhood of Hackney, and officials there say Spears is encouraging violence in the wake of Britain’s August riots.
