Britney Spears is happy with her relationship.

The 39-year-old popstar announced her engagement to actor Sam Asghari just days ago, calling it "overdue" on Instagram. The two met in 2016 on the set of her "Slumber Party" music video and struck up a relationship.

Sources with knowledge of the relationship recently told TMZ that Spears and her beau are in no rush to tie the knot, however.

According to the insiders, the happy couple plans on enjoying their engagement and will take their time to plan their wedding. In fact, the word "wedding" reportedly doesn’t even come up among friends.

In that vein, the engagement reportedly happened privately at Spears’ home last weekend, without any friends around.

Reps for the happy couple did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

The engagement made headlines as it seems Spears is making headway in her battle to end her conservatorship and her father’s grip over her life. 

A rep for Forever Diamonds NY, where Asghari worked to have Spears’ ring designed, told the outlet that on the day of the engagement announcement, they received 500 inquiries about rings with 95% of them being from people looking to get their hands on a ring like Spears.'

No one will be able to purchase an exact replica of the ring, the rep said, considering the actor put time and effort into making it for his future bride, but a version of the ring will be produced and named after the singer. 

"I can’t f---ing believe it!!!!!!" Spears wrote on Instagram on Sunday alongside a video of her showing off her stunning rock. 

The following day, she revealed that she was "shocked" by her beau’s proposal and said it was "worth the wait."

"Yes world … that beautiful f---ing man in that picture is MINE!!!" she added after joking calling Asghari an "a--hole." "I’m so blessed it’s insane!!!!"

Spears' first ex-husband of only 55 hours, Jason Allen Alexander, reacted to the news of his ex's engagement during an interview with Inside Edition.

"I’ve always loved her," says Alexander. "I’m always going to love her. If she’s happy with Sam and that’s going to happen, I’m happy for her.

He also insisted that Spears is " good, she’s mentally stable, she’s fine" amid public concern for her mental health in recent weeks.

Michelle Wu, Annissa Essaibi George advance to November election

Boston voters have, for the first time, narrowed the field of mayoral candidates to two women of color who will face off in November.

City Councilors Michelle Wu and Annissa Essaibi George topped the five-person race in Tuesday’s preliminary runoff.

They bested Mayor Kim Janey, City Councilor Andrea Campbell and John Barros, the city’s former economic development chief.

Wu’s parents immigrated to the U.S. from Taiwan. Essaibi George describes herself as a first-generation Arab Polish-American.

Whoever wins on Nov. 2 will make history in a city where the mayor's office has been held by a white man for the past 200 years.

Janey conceded defeat late Tuesday night.

"While we are still waiting on some results, it appears that we have come up short in the election," Janey wrote in a statement. "I want to congratulate Michelle Wu and Annissa Essaibi-George on their victories this evening. This was a spirited and historic race, and I wish them both luck in the final election."

Shortly after 11:15 p.m., Campbell conceded defeat in the mayoral preliminary and addressed her supporters. She said she congratulated Wu and Essaibi George on their success in the election.

"It's not the result we wanted. It's not the result we expected. But we have something to be extremely proud of," Campbell said.

Essaibi George then addressed her supporters about 30 minutes later saying she looked forward to facing off against Wu in the final mayoral election.

Wu and Essaibi George now have until the election on Nov. 2 to make their case to the city. The new mayor will take office after the results of that election are certified -- about 15 days after the Nov. 2 election.

The election marks a shift in the city's political landscape. Throughout its history, Boston has only elected white men as mayor.

Earlier this year, Janey became the first Black Bostonian and the first woman to occupy the city’s top office after former Mayor Marty Walsh stepped down to become President Joe Biden’s labor secretary.

"While tonight hasn’t ended how we hoped, we have so much to be proud of," Janey said in her statement. "At City Hall — as the first woman and first Black Mayor of Boston — we not only made history, but we made a difference."

Also Tuesday, Boston voters are casting ballots in several races for the City Council.

Several other cities also held preliminary elections Tuesday. Here's where to find their results:
