Pop star Britney Spears wants her sons Sean, 7, and Jayden, 6, to be big brothers—to a sister. "I want a girl!" the 31-year-old told Extra. After breaking off her engagement to Jason Trawick, reportedly because she wanted more kids and he didn't, the working mom of two is now in a relationship with bartender David Ducado and things are getting pretty serious.
I'm not surprised that Britney wants more kids—especially a girl—because I've interviewed Britney multiple times over the years, and even at 15, when she had just released "...Baby One More Time", she knew she wanted to be a mom.
"My mom is the coolest mom, ever," she told me when I interviewed her for a teen magazine. "I want to have kids one day and be just like her." At the time, Britney treated her little sister, Jamie Lynn, like her daughter. She was super-protective and spoiled her with anything—and everything—she wanted, including a mini Mercedes toy to drive around so she'd be just like her big sis, who drove the real thing at the time.
Britney talked about Jamie Lynn being a tomboy, but how her influence on her little sister was turning Jamie Lynn into a "girly girl." Britney—who is as girly as they come—loved helping Jamie Lynn pick out clothes and teaching her how to wear makeup. She'd be a natural with a daughter. What girl wouldn't want to inherit that sparkly two-piece number she wore at the 2000 VMAs, or the belly dance outfit she slithered onto the stage with, while carrying a snake at the 2001 awards?
As it is, Britney is a devoted mom. She goes to her sons' Little League games and soccer matches, but I know deep down she'd love to be taking a little girl to ballet and hip-hop classes (she started taking dance classes when she was 3!). I can just imagine her walking into a store and buying every pink and purple outfit in the place for her little princess.
When I interviewed Britney again after she had her first son, she told me that she wanted a big family. "Family is the most important thing in the world," she said. "I want lots of kids running around me, laughing and playing, and having a good time." I really hope she gets her wish!
