Britney Spears has married her longtime partner Sam Asghari at a Southern California ceremony

Asghari's representative Brandon Cohen confirmed the couple's nuptials. He said: "I am very ecstatic this day has come, and they are married.

I know he wanted this for so long. He is so caring and supportive every step of the way.

The wedding happened nine months after the pair were engaged and nearly seven months after Spears' conservatorship ended.

While seeking an end to the court case that controlled many aspects of her life, Spears expressed her desire to marry Asghari and have children.

Spears became pregnant earlier this year, but she miscarried in March.

The couple met on the set of the "Slumber Party" music video in 2016
