Britney Spears and her adorable sons are on the cover of the latest issue of People magazine, and the pop star has never looked happier. What’s even better for the 33-year-old is she confessed, “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.”
Spears’ has definitely had a rocky past (especially when it comes to the men in her life), but two things are for sure: her kids are her priority and her music has always been amazing spanning her two decade career.
She and Iggy Azalea even have a new single dropping May 5th, so get excited.
Now in a relationship with the handsome 32-year-old writer and producer Charlie Ebersol and in the middle of her super-successful Planet Hollywood residency in Las Vegas (in little over a year, People reports that the show has “grossed nearly $50 million in ticket sales”), the “(Baby) One More Time” songstress we grew up with, know and love is on top of her game right now.
Nonetheless, Spears expressed her true passion: being a mother to her “little men”. “My kids come first in my life, bottom line.”
Spears shares custody of Jayden, 8, and Sean Preston, 9, with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
Believe it or not, Spears is just like any other small-town, hands-on soccer mom: making sure they do their chores, organizing her kids’ playdates and keeping them focused on homework in between taking the stage in Vegas a couple nights a week. “Homework is a priority,” she says. “We have a reward system that helps motivate them: if they get so many As, they get one toy a month.”
“Preston just asked for a high allowance – like $10 a week or $20 a week – but we’ll see!” she added.
She explained about her sons, “Preston is very opinionated, very expressive, and if he doesn’t like something, he’s going to tell you,” she says. “But he has a huge heart, he’s a good kid and he has manners … Jayden is sweet, very soft-spoken, kinda funny. He’s adorable — a momma’s boy.”
Spears and Ebersol starting dating about six months ago, but the boys have really warmed up to him. “They relate to him really well and they have fun together,” Spears said of her sons with Ebersol. “He’s refreshing to be around and really light-hearted.”
All in all, Spears says she’s in a “real good place” in her life, and “I’m very blessed.”
