Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos sat down with the man who stole Britney’s heart – Kevin Federline.
“First of all, do we call you K-Fed?” Maria asked.
“No dude,” he groaned.
“I’m just kidding,” Maria laughed. “Everywhere I look it says ‘K-Fed’ and I’m thinking to myself, ‘I know he’s not doing that.'”
“No, I’m not doing that at all,” he sighed.
And the truth is, Kevin is a doting and ambitious dad who lights up in a way no paparazzi photo could ever capture when you bring up his baby son, Sean Preston.
“What do you call him?” Maria asked Kevin.
“I call him Sean P,” he smiled. “That’s my boy.”
Indeed, as Sean P is growing up, so is dad Kevin. When he sat down with Maria, she discovered a cleaned-up, serious dad who was personable, confident and more than willing to share the details of fatherhood.
“I love it. I get up in the morning with him and he’s, like, all ready to play and stuff,” Kevin beamed.
“What do you play with him?” asked Maria.
“I mean, he’s just getting ready to talk is he is ‘gooing’ and ‘gahhing,'” he laughed.
“Are you ‘gooing’ and ‘gahhing’ with him?” Maria wondered.
“Oh yeah,” the proud papa admitted.
It’s understandable if you’re surprised since it’s not exactly the same picture painted by the tabloids. But the man primarily portrayed as a partier loves being a father.
And the million-dollar question… how is Kevin when it comes to changing diapers?
“I’ve got it down to a science,” he said. “I can do it with one hand tied behind my back with the phone on my ear.”
“No way!” Maria exclaimed in disbelief. “I’d be covering up if it was a boy. I would hold the diaper on top so you don’t get squirted.”
“If it’s your child, it’s different. You don’t care about those things. It’s so minor,” Kevin explained. “You become a parent and nothing else really matters.”
Once Maria got a glimpse of Kevin the dad, it was time to find out about Kevin the recording artist.
First question, just one word: PopoZao.
That would be Kevin’s new Brazilian-flavored dance single “PopoZao.”
“What does it mean again? Nice ass?” Maria asked. “Wait, I mean nice butt. Hold on, do we need to that again? Can I say that on TV?”
“There you go. Nice ass. You can say it on television if it’s positive, right?” Kevin laughed.
Kevin is busy writing and recording his first CD, which is due out in April.
“The album is called ‘Truth’ right?” Maria asked.
“No, no. That’s all tabloid rumors. I was thinking of calling it ‘Rearranged,'” he revealed.
“Why?” asked Maria.
“It’s time I come out and take control of my situation so I’m rearranging my whole character and letting people know who I am. It’s not like everybody knows who I am. You see this picture of me and it says this and that and that’s not true.”
Well, speaking of pictures…
“Do you have any pictures of Sean Preston with you?” Maria inquired.
“Nope,” Kevin said.
Well, to be fair, none that he was willing to show us on camera. But Maria got a private viewing and she said that Sean P is beautiful.
So when it comes to baby, is Kevin a spoiling kind of dad?
“Yeah. I want to say spoiled as much as it’s so easy for him to win me over,” he smiled.
“Who is going to be the disciplinarian?” asked Maria.
“I will, I will,” he said.
So does that mean that mom Britney is a pushover when it comes to baby Sean?
“Oh yeah,” he laughed.
“She must be so in love with him,” Maria said.
“Oh yeah. We are happy. Love it,” the proud papa said.
“Do you guys think you’ll have more?” Maria asked.
“We’ll have to see about that one,” Kevin grinned.

Britney has decided to start smoking again, now that she has given birth to Sean Preston. She and Kevin went for a night out at Mastro’s steakhouse and she was seen dancing and smoking a cigarette, although nobody knows if this was just a one-off or not.
Pop superstar BRITNEY SPEARS is smarting after the value of her New York apartment plummeted by more than $1 million (GBP556,000) in just three months.
The TOXIC singer’s luxury penthouse abode was first put on the market at $6 million (GBP3.35 million), but is now being offered for $4.95 million (GBP2.75 million), according to New York Magazine.
Spears has owned the three-bedroom apartment for several years, but first decided to put it on the market when she became pregnant and opted to move to the US west coast with husband KEVIN FEDERLINE.
The 24-year-old recently changed real estate brokers in an effort to get things moving and her new broker, ADAM MODLIN of the Modlin Group, has advised her to drop the price steeply to a “bargain” $4.95 million.
It’s the second time in recent years Spears has suffered a property flop in Manhattan – in 2002, she was forced to close her restaurant venture, Nyla, due to flagging interest from New York diners, leaving behind an estimated $400,000 (GBP222,500) in unpaid bills.

Thanks a lot to Karinilla for sending me this pic she took at Victoria’s Secret!
Britney Spears topped Mr. Blackwell’s 46th annual “Worst Dressed” list for wearing clothes that he said made her look like an “over-the-hill Lolita.”
“When it comes to Couture Chaos, this Tacky Terror should take a bow _ looks like an over-the-hill Lolita,” Mr. Blackwell said in a statement released Tuesday.
Bohemian teen tycoon Mary-Kate Olsen was the next target of the acid-tongued fashion critic. He called her clothes “bag lady rags” and “depressingly decayed.”
Jessica Simpson followed Olsen. Though her Daisy Dukes shorts landed her on the pages of numerous magazines, Mr. Blackwell said she “resembles a cut-rate Rapunzel _ slingin’ hash in a Vegas diner.”
The other offenders on Blackwell’s list of fashion flops were Eva Longoria, Mariah Carey, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Shakira, Anna Nicole Smith and Renee Zellweger.
Blackwell said Hilton _ who topped his list two years ago _ “still looks like yesterday’s cheesecake … with a side of kitsch.”
Lohan is “drowning in grown-up groaners,” he said, while Zellweger looks like “a painted pumpkin on a pogo stick.”
“2005 turned out to be a particularly bad year for couture chaos, wardrobe wrecks and stylistic sleaze,” Blackwell said. “These woman may be fabulously talented in their respective fields, but when it comes to fashion, they resemble weary weeds in a lovely garden.”

Britney Spears may be set to return to the charts in 2006, but she’s fighting over songs with home-grown singer Sophie Ellis Bextor.
Well, I love nothing more than divas at war – particularly when both girls are on a much-needed comeback trail. Both Brit and posh Soph want to use hit-maker Cathy Dennis, who penned Toxic for Ms Spears.
Soph wants Cathy to write a song for her next album – Sweet Music, after she apparently turned Toxic down. Who will win? My money’s on Britney. Hit me baby, one more time!

I would just like to point out that the purple outfit Britney is
wearing on the pictures you have posted of her at the Aladdin washroom Jan. 8 is actually lingerie from Victoria’s Secret. (I tried to find a picture
in the catalog to include — but there isn’t one. I am sure of this
because I own the same little number in black. I, however, will stick to
wearing mine in the bedroom).
