    Third time's a charm, y'all!

    Sure, it was just this week that Britney Spears' camp was denying the latest round of tabloid reports that she and her newly turned 40-year-old love Jason Trawick were engaged—but that was then. This is now.

    And what a difference a day makes—right now there's no denial necessary, because E! News has confirmed that Britney and Jason are getting hitched!

    Sources confirm the engagement took place Thursday night, when Britney and Jason shared an intimate dinner together in honor of Trawick's 40th birthday. E! News confirms that the couple is now set to formally celebrate their forthcoming nuptials tonight in Las Vegas—the same sinful city, it just so happens, that her first quickly annulled marriage came into being.

    Though there's been no formal announcement, Britney herself hinted at the engagement news earlier today.

    "OMG," she tweeted. "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."

    Though just how much of a surprise his question-popping was is unclear. According to reports, the freshly turned 30-year-old was well aware that her beau of nearly two years was planning on popping the question, as prior to the night, he asked permission both from her father Jamie Spears (aww) and her conservators (oh).

    Congratulations, Britney and Jason!
