Britney Spears and her husband Sam Asghari are moving on up to a new mansion in the Los Angeles area.
The 40-year-old pop superstar and the aspiring actor, 28, have bought an enormous new mansion in Calabasas, California, TMZ reported on Monday.
The newlyweds don’t seem to have wasted any time, as they appeared to have started the move-in process on the same day.
New digs: Britney Spears, 40, and her new husband Sam Asghari, 28, have reportedly purchased a new home in Calabasas, Calif., for $11.8 million, TMZ reported on Monday
The new home was a pricy purchase for the couple, as they reportedly spent $11.8 million on the home — though it would be primarily from Britney’s fortune, which is around $60 million.
It has an impressive 11,650 square feet, so they’ll have plenty of space, even when Britney’s sons Sean, 16, and Jayden, 15, are spending time there.
They’ll likely be over plenty, as the new house is apparently close by to her ex-husband Kevin Federline’s house, where he lives with the boys.
Notably, Britney’s sons weren’t present at her wedding on Thursday, which was held at her previous home. In a statement to People, Federline’s attorney made it clear that they were happy for their mother but wanted to let her bask in the spotlight on her big day.
‘They’re happy for their mom and they are hopeful that Sam and Britney are starting a great future together,’ said Mark Vincent Kaplan. ‘It’s their night and they didn’t want to take away from them.’

Spacious: The mansion features six bedrooms and nine bathrooms and sits on 1.6 acres of land. There’s an expansive backyard area with a luxurious pool
Britney has a penchant for taking photos and video for her Instagram account outside of her old Hidden Hills home, and she’ll have of room on the ground to continue that thanks to the mansion’s 1.6 acres.
She and her husband are apparently getting a head start on the move after her car was seen in the homes driveway, accompanied by two moving trucks.
It’s not clear if the lovebirds are planning to quickly sell off her former mansion — where their wedding was held — or if they plan to hold onto that estate.
All of their needs will certainly be met in the new house, as it reportedly has a large kitchen area, along with a screening room for them to have movie nights on a big screen.
TMZ even notes that the house has an unusual perk — a room solely dedicated to gift wrapping, which is likely to up Britney and Sam’s gift-giving game for Christmas and birthdays.

The home includes an expansive back yard complete with a large pool and a waterslide. The area is also decorated with several fountains, and there’s a hot tub connected to the pool.
A covered area near the pool would be ideal for grilling on a hot summer day.
Britney and Sam appear to have gotten the house for a steal, as it was originally listed for just under $15.5 million.
A post from Frontgate Real Estate advertising the home highlights its grand marble floors, elegant moulding and distinguished chandeliers.
The kitchen features a cozy island for low-key snacking and conversation, and there’s also a breakfast nook surrounded by windows just next to it. Across from the kitchen is a relaxing living area.
Guests arriving at the front of the house will walk up a grand set of stair as the come to the front doors.
A video tour of the property shows that it is decorated with gorgeous dark wood fixtures. There’s a long room off one of the main halls for a formal dining room.
Another room features enormous built-in shelves and cabinets with the same dark wood to create a classy office space.
One room was previously decorated with a piano and featured a full-size bar and plenty of room for chairs and tables, which would make an ideal spot for entertaining guests and even singing a song or two.
Britney’s master bedroom includes an enormous walk-in closet and a lovely tiled bathroom.
The area is rife with ultra-wealthy celebrities, including Kourtney Kardashian and her new husband Travis Barker.
Sam and Britney appear to have prioritized getting settled into their new mansion over an immediate honeymoon trip, though they’ll have plenty of time to travel.
Jeff Biebuyck and Dana Olmes of Frontgate Real Estate posted on Instagram that the property was ‘just listed’ back in January 2021, but Douglas Elliman’s Josh and Matt Altman handled the listing with Todd Bernstein of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, according to property records.
A source told TMZ that Britney’s ex-husband Kevin was taking a wait-and-see approach to living so close to his former wife.
‘Kevin was surprised that of all the neighborhoods she can afford to move to she chose his,’ they said. ‘As long as his peace and tranquility aren’t invaded as a result, more power to her.’
