Britney Spears' normal sons
Britney Spears is desperate for her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James to have a "normal childhood".
The 26-year-old singer - who is slowly getting her life back on track following a public breakdown earlier this year - says she would rather her children didn't go into the entertainment industry, after seeing how becoming a star at a young age can affect later life.
Britney, who shot to fame in Disney's 'The New Mickey Mouse Club' aged 11, said: "I would love them unconditionally if they wanted to, but I would just as soon they have a more normal childhood."
In her first official interview in over a year, Britney also revealed she found it "mind boggling" when she found out her younger sister Jamie Lynn, 17, was pregnant with her first child, Maddie Briann.
She told America's OK! magazine: "I was shocked a little bit. She's always been the baby, and now the baby was having a baby. It was mind-boggling. But I'm sure my boys will be like big brothers to Maddie."
Britney's father Jamie, who is co-conservator of the singer's estate and has legal authority of the 'Toxic' star's finances and affairs, also spoke for the first time about Britney's troubles.
He said: "God has a way of taking something bad and turning it into something. 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."
'Gimme More' singer Britney also said she is determined to get her music career back on track, and hopes to release her new album in the next six to nine months.
Speaking about her new material, Britney said: "I think it is more urban. I'm writing every day, right here at the piano in this living room. This is my best work ever."
