Britney Spears' ex-husband KEVIN FEDERLINE has congratulated his former wife on her engagement and given his blessing as she makes plans to wed Jason Trawick.
The singer's agent-turned-boyfriend proposed last week (ends18Dec11) and Spears confirmed the happy news in a post on her Twitter.com page, calling Trawick her "new fiance".
Federline, who fathered two sons with the star before their divorce in 2007, has now sent his best wishes to the happy couple.
He tells Australia's TV Week magazine, "I'm really happy for her - I think he's a great guy."
The former dancer, who is currently appearing in Australian weight-loss TV show Excess Baggage, adds, "She's happy; she's doing really well. I want to say she's in a good place.
"I haven't spoken to her much since I've been over here (in Australia), both of us have been busy with her being on tour, but I do know from talking to the kids and talking to the kids' teachers that they're doing really good. It's a good step in the right direction. I'm totally happy for her."
