Pop icon Britney Spears’ kids are just as cute as you’d imagine — but also pretty mischievous! The 36-year-old pop star has two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James. You might remember them as little toddlers, but how old are Britney Spears’ kids now? Well, for one, they’re both pre-teens. Sean is 12 years of age, while Jayden is 11 years of age. Where has all the time gone?!

Let’s recap: who is the father of Britney Spears’ kids? None other than her ex-husband, Kevin Federline. Brit and her backup dancer hubby welcomed Sean on Sept. 14, 2005, and Jayden James on Sept. 12, 2006, making the brothers Irish twins. However, the couple split just two months after their second son’s birth.

Even though Britney famously suffered a breakdown in 2007, her joy over being a mom has always been evident. Although she keeps her boys largely out of the spotlight, the proud mom can’t help but share photos and videos of the preteens on Instagram every once in a while.

Sean Preston Federline is Britney’s oldest son!

Britney’s oldest son’s first name is Sean, but the family calls him Preston. Like his mama, he’s extremely music-savvy. Britney told Vegas Player magazine in 2016 that Preston helped make her album, Glory. “[Motherhood] has taught me how to put others’ needs ahead of my own. My sons are my most precious gift, and I always want to do right by them. [Sean Preston] was in the process of me recording. Anything I’d bring home, he’d be like, ‘Oh, Mom, that’s cool,’ [or] ‘No, Mom, that’s really bad. I don’t like that. I don’t like that at all’,” Britney revealed.

According to his dad, Preston is a budding DJ — so it’s no surprise he helped his mom with her album! Federline told Bravo TV, “Preston kind of knows how to DJ. He wants to learn more. I got him Ableton [a music production app] on his laptop, so he kind of messes with that. He hasn’t completely dived into it, and I don’t want to force him. I want to make sure it’s something he really wants to do. He’s really big into the EDM trap music scene.”

Meet Jayden James Federline — just a year younger than his older bro!

Since the two brothers are close in age, it makes sense that 10-year-old Jayden is close to his big bro. They both skateboard — it helps that they can use the skateboarding ramps that are in their backyard! — and sometimes have joint birthday parties. After all, their birthdays are only a few days apart. One year, Britney threw them a Pokemon-themed birthday party to celebrate that Preston and Jayden both hit the double digits.

They clearly have a loving, playful relationship with their famous mom. In May 2017, the boys played a hilarious prank on their mother after stealing her phone. “This is take two of scaring her,” one of the boys said before sneaking up on Britney, who’s busy making something in the kitchen. “Rawr!” he screamed, effectively freaking out the Grammy winner while his brother filmed.

Needless to say, she didn’t appreciate the joke. “Preston! Jayden! STOP!” Brit shouts before the video ends, though she later shared the clip on Instagram. “Pay back is a ……. well, I think you know, my friends,” the blonde beauty captioned the post. We can only hope she films her retaliation when the time comes!
