K-Fed gives Britney his blessing
Britney Spears' new engagement has been given the blessing of her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
The 30-year-old is to marry her long-term boyfriend and former agent Jason Trawick, and K-Fed, 33, who is father to Britney's sons Preston, six, and Jayden, five, says he is "totally happy" for her.
Kevin told Australia's TV Week magazine: "She is in a good place. She's happy.
"She's doing really well ... [The engagement] is a good step in the right direction. I'm totally happy for her."
The former backing dancer, who also has a daughter Kori and a son Kaleb from a previous relationship, welcomed his fifth child this year, a daughter named Jordan with his fiancee Victoria Prince.
K-Fed said of Jason: "I think he's a great guy. The kids speak highly of him. Her family loves him."
The father-of-five said it tore his "heart to pieces" watching Britney's public breakdown in 2007.He said: "It was tough. I'm so glad it's over and I get to leave it behind."
Kevin and Britney were together for just over two years before their divorce in 2006.
She also briefly married childhood friend Jason Alexander in 2004 but the marriage was annulled after 55 hours.
