How Britney Spears and Kevin Federline Became Friendly Exes

Despite going through a nasty split back in 2006, it appears Britney Spears and Kevin Federline have finally moved forward in peacefully co-parenting their two sons Sean Preston and Jayden James.

The two have been spotted over and over again attending their boys’ sporting events together… But how exactly did they get to that point? What’s the secret?

“Time,” Federline told Canada’s etalk. “Time heals everything.”

He continues, “The family is great. It’s been a long, long journey but I think where both of us are now, we both have somebody else we’re happy [with]. Everything just works.”

The Princess of Pop has been dating producer Charlie Ebersol since November, while Federline married his wife Victoria Prince in 2013.

Federline also notes that getting older and having children helped him mature over the years — a major part in moving forward amicably with Spears and settling down with someone new.

“Now you get older, you start looking at life a different way,” he says. “Kids will make you do that. Age makes you do that on its own. I enjoy my life now. I live in the moment with everything I do.”
