Britney Spears' boyfriend Jason Trawick has reportedly met with her ex-husband to ask about proposing.

Jason is alleged to have set up a meeting with Kevin Federline - who has sons Sean Preston, four, and Jayden James, three, with Britney - to seek his approval.

A source said: "Jason not only professed his love for Britney, he told Kevin he absolutely adores his two sons. Jason acknowledged that Kevin will always be the boys' real dad, but respectfully asked his blessing as a future co-parent. Jason has been spending lots of time with the boys to try and bond with them."

The meeting between the pair is said to have gone well with the pair embracing in a hug at the end of the meeting.

The source added: "Kevin couldn't be happier, he trusts Jason. The guys agreed to be in close touch - and Britney's thrilled knowing she's now one step closer to her goal of marrying Jason and living happily ever after."

Britney has reportedly already made two proposals to talent agent Jason, but he has turned them down.
