The Associated Press confirmed rumors that Britney Spears was engaged are true.

Rumors were swirling around the Twitterverse and in tabloids Friday morning about Britney Spears becoming engaged to former manager Jason Trawick.

US Weekly said that Trawick popped the question Thursday on his 40th birthday.

At around 11:30 a.m. on Friday, the 30-year-old pop star tweeted: "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"

US Weekly said the couple plans to celebrate their engagement at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas Friday night.

"This is something they've both wanted for a long time," a source said in US Weekly. "They're both extremely happy and can't wait to be man and wife."

Trawick met Spears when he became her manager in 2006.

US Weekly said the couple became romantic in 2009, three years after Spears split from then-husband Kevin Federline.

This will be Spears' third marriage.
