Fans are convinced Britney Spears may have already tied the knot after Sam Asghari shared loved up photos with the singer – and a sneaky caption.

The two announced their engagement in September, shortly after the pop star's father filed a petition to step down from her controversial conservatorship, which she said put restraints on her personal life as well.

The conservatorship has since been formally dissolved after nearly a decade and a half.

With Britney turning 40 on 2 December, Sam took to Instagram and kissed his fiancée in one post, while holding her tight in another.

"I call you Lioness because I admire your relentless strength, I'm inspired by your beautiful heart, I celebrate your smile that lights up my world. Everyday is your birthday my queen, [sic]" he captioned the post before adding: "Happy 1st birthday to my wife."

Of course, fans ran with that last line.

Britney shared the same photos, however, and had a slightly different caption revealing the two were off on a trip – and she didn't call the personal trainer her husband.

"Oh the precious joy today," she said. "Me and my fiancé are so excited to be going away."
