Britney sat down with OK! magazine to talk about her two adorable sons, her father and the future of her nearly sidetracked career.
Having spent her young life in the spotlight, Britney, 26, told OK! that she hopes her boys steer clear of a career in entertainment. “I’d love them unconditionally if they wanted to,” she explained. “I’d just as soon they have a more normal childhood.
Perhaps some of Britney’s reluctance comes from seeing her little sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, have to face so much public scrutiny over her recent pregnancy. “I was shocked a little bit,” said Britney. “She’s always been the baby, and now the baby was having a baby. It was mind-boggling.”
Britney also told OK! that she wants her boys to be close to her newborn niece. “I’m sure the boys will be like big brothers to Maddie,” she said.
Britney’s downward spiral in recent years ultimately helped to heal her relationship with her parents.
“God has a way of taking something bad and turning it into something good,” explained Britney’s dad Jamie. “If this hadn’t happened, I would never have been able to get back with my daughter and have this relationship I have with these two little boys.”
Britney also has a new album which she expects to hit stores in six to nine months. “I think it is more urban,” she told OK!. “I’m writing every day, right here at the piano in this living room… This is my best work ever.”
