Third time lucky, Britney Spears is to marry again after her long-term boyfriend Jason Trawick proposed to her through a hand-written poem.
Ten years her senior, Trawick is a talent agent who until recently has been Spears’s manager.
He is said to have proposed by writing a After filled the ground floor of the couple’s Los Angeles mansion with roses and candles and presented Britney with a flower-shaped diamond ring. She couldn’t resist saying yes and insiders say she is “on cloud nine.”
Spears is keen to have a child with Trawick but reportedly wanted to wait until after she tied the knot again, as she wanted to keep within her traditional beliefs. This would be child number three for the pop singer. She had Sean Preston, now five, and Jayden James, now four, with second husband Kevin Federline.
A source added: “Britney is desperate to settle down again and have more children. But she is very traditional and didn’t want to start a family with Jason until they’d tie the knot.”
The media have been speculating about a possible engagement after spotting a large diamond ring on Spear’s finger last week. Now that the news is official, they have announced they are planning a “low-key” ceremony in Hawaii after her world tour later this year.
It is hoped this third marriage will be more successful than her past two. Her first marriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander was annulled just 55 hours after they said, ‘I do’ in Las Vegas in 2004. Her second marriage lasted two years to the rapper Kevin Federline, the father of her two sons, from 2004 to 2006. Her relationship with Federline ended in a bitter divorce and battle for child custody.
The outlook is good, insiders say. They claim Spear’s boys have given their blessing to the engagement and their approval has only helped to convince her to move ahead with plans for her third wedding in five years.
A friend of Spears confirms: “Britney said she does not have a doubt in her mind that she wants to spend the rest of her life with Jason.”
