Britney Spears is “still glowing” after longtime boyfriend Jason Trawick popped the question to the pop star on Friday. The two spent the weekend in Las Vegas, where Spears flashed her Neil Lane engagement ring as they celebrated their upcoming nuptials and Trawick’s 40th birthday.
Friends and family have been showing their support and well-wishes for the couple’s upcoming wedding, including Spears’ ex-husband Kevin Federline , who told TV Week magazine that he was “really happy for her.” Yet it seems that no one is as happy for Spears than her die-hard fans.
MTV News spoke with Las Vegas-based webmaster Jordan Miller, who runs Spears’ biggest fan site, BreatheHeavy.com, and he told us just how thrilled he is about the news.
“I was pretty excited for Britney when I found out she was engaged,” Miller said. “I think it’s a good step for her to have some sort of relationship where she can share her feelings and thoughts about her life, so I’m happy for her.”
And it seems all of his followers agree. “The overwhelming reaction from fans about the news of Britney’s engagement is that they’re really happy for her,” Miller said. “They think it’s such good timing for her, to finish the tour and kind of have a break and be able to start a new chapter in her life. So I think the majority of fans are really happy for Britney and that it’s definitely a good step for her.”
The news doesn’t come as a big shock to Miller, since rumors of Britney’s engagement have been swirling for months.
“There were rumors for the last six months pretty much saying he was going to do it in December,” Miller said of the couple, who have been dating since 2009 . “So it’s cool to see that it actually happened and she’s going to get married.”
Details have not been released as to when Britney will tie the knot, but it seems Miller already has the perfect wedding gift in mind from all of her fans.
“If fans could get Britney a cool present, it would be a vacation to a tropical island where she didn’t have to be around anyone but Jason,” Miller said.
