Britney Spears can’t believe her “two babies,” 15-year-old Sean Preston and 14-year-old Jayden James, are now young men.
The 39-year-old singer shared a rare photo from a walk with the couple that she shares with ex-husband Kevin Federline. They are both now taller than their famous mom, and she said the teens, who have masks in the photo, gave her approval to post the image.
“It’s crazy how time flies,” Spears wrote. “My kids are so big now !!!! I know … I know … it’s very difficult for any mom, especially a mom with kids, to watch them grow up so fast !!!! Talk about enough as if to make you fall to your knees …. GEEZ !!!! “
However, “I am very lucky that my two babies are so gentle and kind that I must have done something right !!!” she wrote.
Spears wrote that she has not posted photos of them recently “because they are at the age where they want to express their own identities and I totally understand that.” She said she “did everything possible” to edit the sunset photo and that’s what got them to agree to let it be published.
“Now I don’t feel left out anymore and I’m going to go celebrate,” she joked, adding, “Oh shit, I guess cool moms don’t do that … Ok, I’ll just read a book.” . “
Spears’s boyfriend, Sam Asghari, commented on the photo: “Lioness with her cubs.”
The teens primarily reside with Federline, Spears’ backup dancing husband, who has the best hand in their 70-30 custody arrangement.
In September 2019, the children were granted a restraining order, obtained through Federline’s attorney, which prevented Spears’ father and co-conservator Jamie from seeing them. It stemmed from an alleged incident a month earlier when Jamie and Sean Preston had a verbal argument that led to Jamie allegedly getting his hands on the teenager.
In early 2020, Jayden shared what he really thought about his grandfather in an Instagram Live video that was quickly deleted.
Jamie, of course, is at the center of the #FreeBritney movement. Spears has been under guardianship since her involuntary hospitalizations in 2008. Jamie, initially in charge of the whole thing, now oversees Spears’ $ 60 million estate along with co-conservative Bessemer Trust, a finance company, but Spears has been dealing with , through his court-appointed attorney, that his father be removed. His lawyer said that he is afraid of him and that he will not return to work until he is no longer in office. Spears wants her curator, Jodi Montgomery, who currently makes decisions about her health, where she lives and who she sees, oversee the whole thing.
The New York Times documentary film Framing Britney Spears looked at the guardianship and expanded the move to #FreeBritney. Last week, Jamie’s lawyer insisted that “people are wrong” and that he only wants to help his daughter from people who “exploit” her.
Monday was a day of reflection for Spears, who also shared a post talking about “the madness of last year” and suggested that she was not just talking about the first anniversary of the coronavirus pandemic that hit the US.
She wrote: “This new year should be a year of cleansing our inner being with meditation … prayer … any kind of hobby that brings joy … and being aware of what we put into our bodies too]!! ! All this helps us to have a clear mind… body… spirit and offers much more clarity in our daily life !!!! This year I dedicate myself to drink a lot of tea and heal myself !!!! I am working to allow myself not to be so strong all the time and knowing that it’s okay to cry !!!! I pray for deep healing this year for all of us and I hope we can all inspire each other !!!! “
She finished with, “Again … BE KIND – SPEND IT IN AMERICA !!!!” – a message also learned from the documentary, showing how bad the media was with her throughout her rise to stardom.
Spears also shared a memory of herself at the 2002 Grammys. She was only 20 at the time and looked very happy and in a red curly dress.
“Tonight was a dream,” he wrote. “Sometimes you have so much fun that time flies by in literally 2 seconds !!!! That happened to me tonight !!!! I started to do my hair and put on my makeup in jeans and a sweatshirt and I left like this !!!!”
Spears admitted: “It took me 19 years to realize it was Julia Roberts in Beautiful woman” with her red dress, the white and red diamonds and “wow the curly hair !!!! The power of dreams”.
The next hearing on your guardianship case is March 17.
