"They had brought toys and video games to keep him occupied throughout the entire stay," an insider said. "On the 14th, for the actual party, they brought in a Disney-themed Cars cake. Everybody sang 'Happy Birthday' while he jumped aorund on the couch, with his grandma Lynne holding on for dear life."
Reportedly Britney rented not only one room for her stint at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, she rented three. The two others were used by her family members, including her mom Lynne and sister Jamie-Lynne. This way the whole family would be there for the birth and Sean's birthday celebration. It would also enable the family to avoid the paparazzi coming in an out of the hospital.
Kevin's family was allegedly not allowed to visit or attend the party. But that didn't prevent them from planning their own celebration with Sean.
"The Federlines have all purchased gifts for Sean Preston, and they are anxious to see the new baby, "The insider says. " Something will be planned for a few weeks out from now that will also include Kevin's two kids with Shar Jackson."
Sean turned one on September 14th. Baby Sutton was born on the 12th.

Billboard: Kevin Federline has inked a licensing deal with Reincarnate Music for the Oct. 31 release of his debut album, "Playing With Fire." The 11-track set includes a collaboration with wife Britney Spears dubbed "Crazy" but omits "Popo Zao," which was roundly derided by the media upon its January release as a single.
A new single, "Lose Control," was premiered during the recent Nickelodeon Teen Choice Awards. Its accompanying video is available on Yahoo! Music and YouTube.com. Federline will also hit the talk show circuit around release date.
The first 500 fans that pre-order "Playing With Fire" via Federline's online store will receive an autographed photo; all pre-orderers will be entered into a contest to attend a record release party in Los Angeles hosted by Spears. The runner-up will win the sneakers Federline wore on the Teen Choice Awards.
Here is the track list for "Playing With Fire":
"The World Is Mine"
"America's Most Hated"
"Dance With a Pimp" featuring Ya Boy
"Privilege" featuring Bosko
"Crazy" featuring Britney Spears
"A League of My Own"
"Playing With Fire"
"Keep on Talkin'"
He's also a fashion model.
Federline has been tapped again to be the face of Five Star Vintage clothing, company spokesman Kenneth Loo said Wednesday.
Federline made his modeling debut with the company over the summer. His latest ads, showcasing the company's holiday line, will begin appearing next month.
The company chose Federline again because of his "renegade style," Loo said.
"He is a maverick, making his own choices when it comes to his music, his fashion and his celebrity," Loo said. "He is constantly in the public eye, which makes him a good spokesman for our line."The ads show Federline wearing sunglasses, a white tank top and two different jackets from the company's holiday line.
Kevin Federline has re-upped his deal to be the face of Five Star Vintage. After the company dubbed his debut in their fall campaign an "overwhelming success," K-Fed has been tapped to front the winter 2006 ad campaign as well. The ads, featuring K-Fed in a black "New York"-emblazoned hooded sweater and a signature track jacket — will debut in magazines next month.
The fashion line's Director of Marketing, Kenneth Loo, says "We had plans to follow up our first advertising campaign with Kevin Federline with another famous face. But the overwhelming success both in terms of sales and brand awareness made using him an easy decision."
Five Star Vintage's new campaign featuring Senor Spears can be seen in the October issues of major fashion/lifestyle magazines.

Why this? Why that? People were teasing me,' That was the only part that just killed me."
Shar also talks about her relationship with Britney Spears, Federline's new wife and baby-mama, saying, "She's part of our extended family." She does add, however, that she has not met their children. "I keep my distance," she says.

The September 12 birth by C-section at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles "went really smoothly, says a source. A family insider says that when the singer checked out at midnight on September 14, she wore a beanie, rode in a wheelchair pushed by Federline and "held the baby in her arms."
Though there were other occasions to celebrate that weekend (son Sean turned 1 on September 14; their two-year wedding anniversary was on the 18th), another source says they were low-key.
"They stayed home," the source says. "A lot of bonding went on. Sean and Sutton get along great!"

Shar Jackson says she wasn’t sorry to lose Kevin Federline as a sweetie — but wouldn’t let the father of her children escape. “As far as I was concerned, I was ok that the relationship ended. . . but the family breaking up is something painful,” Jackson tells Thursday’s “Dr. Keith Ablow Show.” “And honestly I didn’t let it happen. Now in the beginning it was rough, because he was overseas, so I really didn’t have much control over there. But when he came back home, I told him ‘Kevin, I’m not going to let you be a convenient father, when it’s convenient for you. If you are going to be part of these kids’ lives, then you’re going to be a part. If not, then you’re not.’” Jackson calls Federline’s wife, Britney Spears, part of her children’s “extended family” but says she has not met Spears’ children because “I keep my distance.”
