Britney Spears gets engaged, changes Facebook status

Forget about the holidays, Britney Spears is engaged!

December can now officially be designated not only Spears and new fiance Jason Trawick's birthday month, but also their engagement.

CNN has confirmed that the pair, who have been together since 2009, are now set to make it official. Trawick, who is Spears's former agent, according to PEOPLE popped the question on Thursday which was his 40th birthday. Spears dropped a few clues via her Twitter account and by Saturday had changed her Facebook status to "engaged."

"Tonight was one of the most magical nights of my life. Such an amazing time with my new fiancé and our closest friends and family. #Blessed," Spears tweeted on Saturday.

The pair reportedly celebrated with friends and family in Las Vegas on Friday night.

It will be the third trip down the aisle for the singer who in 2004 had a quickie Las Vegas wedding with childhood friend Jason Alexander (the "marriage" only lasted 55 hours) in 2004 and later married Kevin Federline whom she divorced in 2006. Spears and Federline have two young sons together.

    It never ceases to amaze me how many people there are out there that live their sad, little lives vicariously through celebrities. So many of you get your little panties in a bunch over who is marrying who. Get over it people. Try to live your own lives instead of theirs. Trust me, you'll be happier for it.

    Why are we still talking about this woman? If she sells records it's a pity thing, she has no talent is mentally ill and cannot care for her children properly. For my money she is very reminiscent of Judy Garland, bless her heart,.......only without talent!

    She was cute when she was young, but now, WOW, she is just nasty! She is just a 30 year old trailer-trash-16year-old-wannabe with no talent what so ever! Well, if you call wabbling around the stage while breathing heavely in a microphone and rubbing on sweating guys talent, then yeah you can give her credit for that! She can't sing or dance! And what's with that psycho smile she is always displaying?

    I am happy for her, I hope they are happy – I don't think he is old – he is younger than my husband and I adore him. I think she is a very pretty woman that has went thru some horrible things (some by her own making it seems) everyone has bad times, not all of them are played out in the press. Also everyone grows and changes, so ii will give her the best and hope things work out

      Who knew you were so perfect???!!! We should be just like you. With comments like that, I wonder why the world is the way it is. Do you even know Britney? I have known her for years and she is one of the sweetest people I know. She has a good heart and has done a lot to get her life together. And she loves her boys with all of her heart. How dare you judge someone you don't even know? Based on your comments, you should look in the mirror and take a look at yourself and hope to God that if you have children, they turn out nothing like you because this world will be doomed. How about going the high road and wishing someone the best and hoping they continue down the right path? Is that so hard to do? Instead of bashing someone you don't even know? Does that really make you feel better about yourself? Please grow up. Maybe you didn't have enough love in your life growing up and you feel the need to lash out at everyone around you. It is the season about being thankful and being good and kind. Maybe you can take that and learn to live your life that way.

    Give the girl some credit! Everyone makes mistakes. Hers are just in the mkpublic eye. Don't act like you've never done anything wrong or stupid. She's been with this guy for a long time now. It's not like they met yesterday and got engaged. She seems to have a better head on her shoulders now and she's happy and normal for the first time in a long time. Maybe this one will work for her. Good luck to her!

      Sure we all make mistakes, but my mistakes don't include 3 marriages before the age of 30 (one of which lasting 55 hrs), being legally placed under conservatorship, being taken away in a straight jacket because I locked myself in the bathroom with my kids and wouldn't come out, talking in a fake accent and courting the press to follow my every move. My mistakes are more along the lines of leaving the chicken in the oven too long so it dried out, misplacing my car keys and buying the wrong shade of blue towels that didn't really go with my bathroom decor.

      Eureka! I think I've finally figured out why people leave the inane "Who cares?" comment. I think it's their illiterate way of asking this question instead: "Why are all of you people posting uninformed, lengthy opinions about people (celebrities) whom you've never met - and so certainly do not know?" There's one thing having a passing interest, it's another thing seriously engaging in this nasty, third-rate nosiness.

    A mentally unstable & immature 30 year old who's still under conservatorship is getting married for the 3rd time? This is hardly the love story of the century.

      I've seen her in interviews lately and she comes across as a giggly 16 yr old who's not terribly clever and kind of flighty. She seems very sweet; but this pairing smacks of her finding someone to "take care of her"; not finding an equal partner. Jason's likely thinking she's sweet and cute and likes taking care of her; but that's only adorable for so long – it becomes tired the older it becomes. They don't seem to have the maturity and balance that's required for a successful marriage. I wish them luck, as I think they're both going to need it, as I'm pretty sure they'll have a baby in short order, then we'll be reading about their divorce in a few years.

      She's only engaged. She and her father, legal team don't want her to get married until all her legal problems are done. If she gets married while she's under conservatorship, the judge has to agree.

      Depends what kind of a conservatorship, and what powers the conservator has. The conservator may have the right to control her estate, her person, or both. However, those powers may or may not include the right to decide who and if she can get married.

      Sad how you all find it so normal to pick apart and judge a person whom you've never even met, much less know. This is all just supposed to be entertainment for us, yet you people comment as though they were your family members. Do you even discus your family members' lives like you do this stranger's? It's just entertainment; read it and move on to the next story about the celebrity you've never met.
