Finally, Britney Spears’ boyfriend Sam Asghari is sharing the details of his first date with the pop star. Most importantly, he lets fans know that Spears made the first move.

Asghari told Entertainment Tonight that Spears handpicked him for her 2016 video for “Slumber Party”  after he appeared in Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home” video. “A good friend of mine was working on the music video at the time,” he said of “Slumber Party.” “They told the casting director to cast this guy and then they sent my pictures to [Britney] and she picked it. ‘I want this guy’ — and so that’s how it was.”

After chatting with Asghari on set, he said he got a phone call from the pop star asking him out to dinner. “We talked at the music video [and] we talked about what do you like to eat, sushi,” he told ET. “…Then text messages and next thing you know, just like a normal couple.”

Spears and Asghari have been dating for three years, but the couple only made their relationship red carpet official back in July when they showed up to the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood premiere together. Yep, totally normal couple.
