Pop star Britney Spears announced earlier this year that she was taking a break from performing and other work commitments to spend with her family after her father had a health scare. Then in April 2019, reports surfaced that the Piece of Me artist was so distraught over her dad’s illness that she checked herself into a mental health facility.

While Spears is getting the help she needs the star has been receiving love and support from her sister, Jamie Lynn, as well her boyfriend, Sam Asghari, and her many fans around the world.

Here’s a little more information about the “Oops!… I Did It Again” singer including her age, how many children she has, and what her net worth is.

How old is Britney Spears?

Britney Jean Spears was born on Dec. 2, 1981, in McComb, Mississippi to parents Lynne and Jamie Spears. She grew up in Kentwood, Louisiana, and started singing and performing for others at an early age.

“Ever since I was 7 or 8 years old, my mom would have company over, and I was always performing for everybody in front of the TV,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “Even when I went to school, I was always the weird child; I would go outside and instead of playing I wanted to have Star Search competitions.”

That dream of being in a Star Search competition became a reality for Spears in 1992 when she appeared on the show and sang in front of a nationwide audience. She didn’t win, but her appearance on the show opened doors for her and she ended up being cast on Disney’s The All-New Mickey Mouse Club alongside Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera.

How many kids does she have?

Spears has two children with her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, who she was married to three years before divorcing in 2007.

They welcomed their first son, Sean Preston, in 2005. The following year his brother, Jayden James, was born.

The couple’s kids, who are often seen smiling with their mom on Instagram, are reportedly staying with their father while Spears seeks treatment.

Federline’s attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan told Entertainment Tonight that his client “commends Britney for recognizing that she needs to take a step back and that she is taking reasonable steps to dealing with her situation in a responsible way. He wishes everyone well.”

What is her net worth?

Spears burst on the scene in 1999 with her debut single “Baby One More Time” and has been making hits ever since. She also had a few film and TV gigs over the years as well and earned some serious cash with plenty of lucrative product endorsements. The pop princess had deals with several top brands including Pepsi, American Express, McDonald’s, Home Depot, Verizon, Amazon, Google, Visa, Colgate, Estee Lauder, Priceline, and Comcast.

In addition, she has her fragrance line in partnership with Elizabeth Arden and of course, her Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood which became one of the most successful residencies ever in Sin City.

All of that has given Spears an estimated net worth of $215 million.
