Britney Spears has sparked rumours she has married flame David Lucado by stepping out wearing what appeared to be a wedding band.
The star, below, was seen with a simple gold band on her left ring finger at her sons' soccer game in Los Angeles at the weekend and seemed eager to show off the new jewellery as she held up her hand for fans and photographers.
Spears, who ended her long- term relationship with her agent-turned-fiance Jason Trawick in January last year, began dating Lucado, a legal researcher, after being introduced by friends at a party early last year.
She was previously married to Kevin Federline, with whom she has sons Sean, eight, and Jayden, seven, for three years until March 2007.
Spears was also briefly married to childhood friend, Jason Alexander, for 55 hours after they exchanged vows in Las Vegas in January 2004 but it was quickly annulled.
The singer admitted late last year she hoped to get married again in the future and have more children.
"I'd like to have more kids, settle down . . . have kids, maybe twins, and get married. That would be nice," she said.
Spears opened up about her relationship with Lucado, who she described as a simple, passionate guy. "I love that he's passionate, funny and sexy and I love him," she said.
