Sam Asghari said he's ready to take his relationship with pop star Britney Spears to "the next step."

In an interview with Forbes, Asghari, a 27-year-old fitness coach and actor, said he is ready to grow in multiple facets of life - including his relationship with Spears.

"I want to take my career to the next step when it comes to acting. I want to take my relationship to the next step, as well," he told Forbes. "I don't mind becoming a father. I want to be a young dad."

Spears has two children, Preston, 15, and Jayden, 14, from her prior marriage to Kevin Federline.

The couple met on the set of Spears' music video, 'Slumber Party'

The couple met on set for the music video, "Slumber Party," in 2016.

According to Asghari, he was hand-selected by Spears to be in the video, and Asghari said he was unaware the music video was with the pop star until he showed up for filming.

"My girlfriend now at the time, personally she picked my picture and she wanted me to be cast in the music video," he told Forbes. "My friend called me and said, 'I need you to be on it. Trust me, you want to show up.'"

The couple has been dating for more than four years.

In addition to a future family, a source close to Asghari told Us Weekly that Asghari plans to get married.

"Sam also sees marriage in his and Britney's future when the time is right and they are able to wed without the restraints of her conservatorship and with the blessing of her family," the source told Us Weekly. "He's very old-fashioned in that way."

Spears is currently in a legal battle with her father, Jamie Spears, who has been her conservator since 2008. The father currently has legal control over his daughter's medical and financial decisions.

The couple has been in the spotlight after Spears' documentary premiered last month

Following the premiere of the New York Times documentary "Framing Britney Spears," in February, Asghari released a statement where he stated support for his girlfriend and condemned Spears' fathers' actions.

The documentary sparked a conversation about how Spears was treated when she was in the spotlight.

"I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together," Asghari said in his statement.
