Los Angeles - Britney Spears is engaged.

The Criminal hitmaker's boyfriend Jason Trawick was expected to propose last Friday, but surprised her by doing it on Thursday, and celebrated her saying yes by throwing a huge party at the Chocolate Lounge and Sugar Factory in the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas.

Britney wrote on Twitter: "OMG. Last night Jason surprised me with the one gift I've been waiting for. Can't wait to show you! SO SO SO excited!!!! Xxo(sic)"

She also tweeted the following on Saturday: "Tonight was one of the most magical nights of my life. Such an amazing time with my new fiancé and our closest friends and family. #Blessed"

Sign off the marriage

Jason - who has been dating Britney for two years - asked permission from her father Jamie before getting down and one knee.

The singer, who has been married twice before, will need to get a judge to formally sign off the marriage as she continues to be under the conservatorship of her father after a public breakdown more than three years ago.

A source said previously: "When Britney does get engaged, her father's attorneys will notify the judge in her conservatorship case. It's extremely within the realm of possibility that the conservatorship will end, and then Britney will get married. It will be a very smooth transition."
