Britney Spears’ life has changed since her conservatory was suspended last November – with marriage and motherhood on the horizon for the star.
But while the 40-year-old pop singer is busy planning her wedding to actor Sam Asghari, 28 – and announced this week they are expecting a baby together – it’s not the first time Brit has tied or welcomed the knot has a child.
The singer was previously married to dancer and musician Kevin Federline, 44, – with the couple drawing attention during their high-profile marriage, which included starring in an MTV reality series.
Here’s everything you need to know about Kevin Federline, his marriage to Britney Spears, their messy divorce and what he’s up to now.
Who is Kevin Federline?
Kevin Federline is an American entertainer, singer, actor, reality star and former dancer – who has been a backup dancer for a number of stars on the Naughties including Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Destiny’s Child and P!nk.
He was born on March 21, 1978 in Fresno, California, USA – making him an Aries traditionally ambitious, brave and well organized.
His parents are Mike and Julie Federline, who are auto mechanics and ex-bank accountants respectively – Kevin’s mom and dad are from Oregon.
His parents divorced when he was eight, and Kevin eventually moved to California with his father when he was eleven.
Kev dropped out of high school as a teenager and then began his dance career – which launched him into the entertainment world.
When were Britney Spears and Kevin Federline married?
Pop sensation Britney Spears married Kevin in September 2004 – and tied the knot after they met five months ago.
Their ceremony took place at a home in the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles, California – a few weeks later, on Oct. 6, the couple filed legal documents.
However, the relationship did not last as the couple separated in November 2006 and their divorce was finalized the following year in March 2007.
Kevin – who was previously in a relationship with actress Star Jackson from 2001 to 2004 and shares two children with her – later married former volleyball player Victoria Prince in 2013 and they also share two children together.
Who are Britney Spears and Kevin Federline’s children and who has custody of them?
During the course of their marriage, Britney and Kevin had two children together – sons Sean Preston and Jayden James, born in September 2005 and September 2006, respectively.
When Britney and Kevin split in November 2006, a bitter custody battle broke out between the two.
In October 2007, Kevin was awarded sole custody of the couple’s two sons – and Britney was known to have been hospitalized in January 2008 after refusing to hand over the boys and after locking herself in a bathroom with the younger of the two boys .
Thirteen years of trouble followed for Britney, when American courts put her in a conservatory and banned her from having any more children.
Kevin is said to have 70 percent custody of his and Britney’s sons, while she has been awarded 30 percent custody of the boys.
What does Kevin Federline do for a living now?
The reason Kevin and Britney got together was because of their work, as the backup dancer and the pop babe crossed paths in April 2004 and started dating.
Since then, Kevin has left his dance days behind and entered the world of music making, releasing his debut single via download in 2006.
His debut solo album, titled Playing with Fire, was a critical and commercial flop, peaking at number 151 on the US Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.
His last single was titled Hollywood and was released in 2016 – but he hasn’t turned his back on music entirely and has been working as a DJ since 2019.
He has also flirted with the world of acting and wrestling, even appearing in the ring on wrestler and actor John Cena’s WWE series Monday Night Raw.
He was also a reality star – he partied on the Australian weight loss series Excess Baggage in 2012 and appeared on Celebrity Fit Club in 2010 and in the self-recorded reality series Britney and Kevin: Chaotic in 2005, which chronicled the early formation of his romance and marriage with Britney.
What does Kevin Federline think of Britney Spears’ pregnancy news?
Britney Spears fans were delighted to learn the singer is expecting her third child – the first with fiancé Sam Asghari, 28.
And it seems Kevin is also thrilled to learn his ex-wife is going to be a mom for the third time, after announcing her news via an Instagram post.
In the hours after Britney announced her happy news, Kevin’s attorney, Mark Vincent, told NBC News, “Kevin is aware of Britney’s Instagram post.
“He wishes her the best for a happy, healthy pregnancy and congratulates her and Sam Asghari on their shared plan for the excitement of parenthood.”
