New Pics of Kori and Kaleb
How quickly things can change. Two weeks ago (one week before Britney filed for divorce), in an interview with USA Today Kevin said the following:
"I'm normal," Federline says. "I've had ups and downs. I know what it's like to be dirt-poor, and I know what it's like to be filthy rich. I've seen both sides, and it's been a crazy road getting here."
Along the way, Federline became a father of four by two women. He says he always had planned on becoming a father in his 20s. "I'm not going to say that I planned on falling in love with my wife when my ex-girlfriend was pregnant, but I knew for sure that I'd have one or two children by now. I didn't think I'd have four children, but I love being a young dad with a big family."
The two Spears/Federline tots get along great, he says. "Preston is starting to take on the big brother role, and he's getting very protective." Preston "wants to be around the baby all the time." Federline's two children with actress Shar Jackson (Kori, 4, and Kaleb, 2) are regular visitors to their home, says Federline. "Preston gets real excited when Kori and Kaleb come over." But it's clear that the "little one" is the apple of Federline's eye. That baby "picks up things a lot quicker than the others, because he has the benefit of learning from the older kids."
His two-year marriage is solid, the singer says, with both husband and wife focused on family and career. "She's recording three or four times a week, and she still manages to be with the kids a lot."
Spears will decide when the couple's 7-week-old will make a public appearance. Federline says he wants to release a photo soon so his family can join him on the road without dodging the paparazzi. "But if my wife wants to have that baby all to herself for now, then she keeps it, because there's not much she has to herself," he says, "not even her own children."
