Friendly warning: If you don’t want to feel old, stay away from this story — because Britney Spears’ sons are practically all grown up! It may seem like just yesterday that her boys, 12-year-old Sean and 11-year-old Jayden, were wee lads, but now they’re nearly teenagers.
Spears recently posted a rare photo of both her boys, commenting on how quickly they’re growing up. “The boys are bigger than me now,” she wrote on Instagram.
And even though they’re seated in the photo, it’s easy to tell that these boys are quickly getting bigger — whether their mom likes it or not!
And while they may be growing up into young men, they still clearly love spending time with their mom — because you’re never too old for some quality bonding time!
Spears likes to post online about their times together. Here’s one the singer posted in January as a #TBT (that’s the hashtag for “Throwback Thursday,” for those of you who don’t know) enjoying the water with one of her sons:
She also has fun taking silly selfies with them:
And she can’t help but be proud of their skateboarding skills:
And the three of them even take time to paint together (how great is this in terms of family-bonding?!):
Spears obviously recognizes the importance of spending time outdoors with her kids, which is something many moms can relate to.
“Spending quality time together is such an important aspect of family life and for me, as a mother, it is the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish,” she wrote in a recent statement.
If you can relate to moms like Spears and Middleton who have families growing up perhaps a little faster than they’d like — be sure to make some lasting memories with them this summer!
