THE 39-YEAR-old pop star and model Sam, 27, have been dating since 2016, after meeting on the set of Britney’s Slumber Party music video.
A source told Entertainment Tonight: “Britney and Sam are an end game couple. But for them, it’s all about timing.
“All of their dreams for their relationship have been on pause due to the conservatorship.
“They haven’t been able to progress like a normal, adult couple. It’s like dating in high school.”
Jamie Spears, Britney’s dad, is planning to step down from his daughter’s conservatorship, which he has at least partially controlled since it was established in 2008.
And the singer now feels ready to move on with the rest of her life, as she looks to the future with Sam.
The insider shared: “Things are finally looking up and it’s starting to become very real for them that soon they’ll be able to take back the reins and have full control as a couple.
“They are ready to embrace that next chapter, and love each other without feeling like they are on a leash.”
The source explained that it’s a case of when rather than if they will get engaged.

Later that year she wed dancer Kevin Federline – the father of her two sons – until the pair separated in 2007.
