Britney Spears said she is crossing her fingers that her young children won’t want to follow their mom into the family business – at least for a few decades.
"If my sons [Sean Preston, 4, and Jayden James, 3] told me they wanted to be in the entertainment business, I'd lock them in their rooms until they turned 30," Spears tells Cosmopolitan for its August issue.
The 28-year-old pop singer and former “Mickey Mouse Club” child star said she’s glad that her sons with ex Kevin Federline have instead expressed an interest in marital arts.
