Britney Spears got slapped with the “lioness” moniker yesterday, and by the man who’s been calling her that for a while. Mother’s Day was a silent affair on the 39-year-old singer’s Instagram, but it was a different story as 27-year-old boyfriend Sam Asghari marked the annual calendar date and shouted out mom-of-two Britney. Posting to his stories on Sunday, the personal trainer – who called Britney his “lioness” in a Valentine’s Day hike this year – uploaded a gorgeous bikini-clad kiss from Britney, and it was all about her motherhood. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. Britney, a mom to teenage sons Jayden James and Sean Preston, is reported to be seeing her boys on weekly visits as her 30% custody agreement with ex Kevin Federline limits her time with them. The pop princess, set to speak in court next month as she continues to battle 68-year-old dad Jamie Spears, was caught by Sam in a gorgeous, sun-kissed photo, one showing the “Circus” hit-maker planting a kiss on her boyfriend’s cheek as she rocked a tiny snakeskin bikini top.
While Britney closed her eyes for the sweet kiss, Sam looked right at the camera, all shirtless and doing the selfie honors. The Iranian took to his caption, writing: “Happy Mother’s Day to my lioness @britneyspears.”
Britney was last photographed with one of her sons during a high-profile Starbucks run in March, one of two public sightings since the February release of documentary “Framing Britney Spears.” The star has since referenced her “beautiful” kids in a video affirming she’s happy.

Britney, twice divorced and raising her sons as a single mom, made 2016 headlines for calling her boys “masterpieces.” The Grammy winner, who welcomed her children in 2005 and 2006, made Mother’s Day headlines that year as she wrote:
“From the day I saw the most precious eyes, I believed in miracles to the core. Such a gift God has given me, exploring in your beautiful worlds every day. I pray as a mother I teach you strength and passion to carry through the struggles in the world.”

Sam has explained why he calls his famous girlfriend a “lioness.” Speaking on “The Doctors,” the fitness guru revealed:
“If you guys watch the Geography channel, I watch it all the time. The female lion inspires the male lion all the time. The female lion, I give props to you guys,” adding:
“I was raised by women, and I think you guys are amazing, so that’s where that came from. Lioness is a strong, strong animal and yeah, that’s it.”
