Three things make us very happy in this photo Britney Spears shared via Facebook and Tumblr on Wednesday night: The popster, 30, is giddily displaying her engagement ring, unconcerned that it's a bit askew; in a nice change of pace, her smile looks genuine, not forced; and her new and improved weave has achieved heights of bouffant buoyancy worthy of a '70s pinup.
"I can't stop looking at it!!" a tight-sweatered, top-heavy Brit-Brit gushed of her bright and shiny Neil Lane sparkler, which beau Jason Trawick, 40, slipped on her finger during a bended-knee proposal in December.
Spears has been in a state of excitement since Trawick popped the question. On Dec. 16, she enthusiastically tweeted, "OMG. Last night Jason surprised me with the one gift I've been waiting for."
The ring is designed to look like a tiara crossed with a crown, a theme befitting Trawick's vision.
“Jason is a romantic," Neil Lane explained to People, "and when I asked him to tell me about Britney and what the ring would represent to them so I could find inspiration, his response was always the same: She is his princess!"
