Britney Spears' longtime boyfriend is ready to lock that down.
Britney is finishing up her huge Femme Fatale world tour next week, and the almost thirty year-old pop star might be celebrating in a big way. According to PEOPLE, a source says Spears and her man, Jason Trawick, plan to get engaged…and soon.
"They’ve been talking about marriage for a long time,” says the source. “It would be surprising if they are not engaged by the end of the year.”
The engagement is so close, in fact, that, according to the source, Trawick has already picked out a ring.
"Britney is really looking forward to turning 30. She is having the one of the best times of her life," the source continues.
Spears recently talked about reading, The Mastery of Love a book on love and relationships that was written a decade ago by Mexican spiritualist Don Miguel Ruiz.
"It's basically an analysis of love and what it means to love," Spears says. "It goes through all the different aspects of love – who you are as a person, knowing yourself before you even attempt to love anyone else, that sort of thing. It's really well-written and thought-provoking."
Trawick used to be Spears' agent, and the two decided to break up professionally in 2009 so they could get together, personally. Their reps confirmed their relationship in May of 2010.
Trawick stars in Britney's latest music video,Criminal. And if you didn’t know better, you'd think it was sex tape. In the seductive vid, Spears leaves her abusive boyfriend for a new guy, played by Trawick. The two go on a London crime spree that for some reason involves them having sex in the shower.
The video's director, Chris Marrs, wasn't too Keen on using Trawick, a non-actor, for the video.
"I wanted to make a really rad, epic video, and I definitely got the sense from Britney that she wanted something really cool," he explained to MTV News. "And in my mind, I was just thinking, 'We really should not be using your boyfriend; we should get an actor.'"
I mean, he might not be an actor, but I think he can manage acting like he's having sex with his girlfriend. In the end, Marrs was happy with the outcome.
"At the end of the day, Jason killed it," Marrs Piliero said. "For me, it was a fun challenge to be like, 'I'm gonna make sure that you are awesome,' and he was."
