Britney Spears and her boyfriend, Charlie Ebersol, are admitted homebodies who like nothing more than hanging out together with some hot chocolate, but recently the couple stepped out in Las Vegas and made headlines because it was a family date.
The duo have been dating since November, and while rumors began to circulate earlier this year that they might be ready to take things to the next level — namely, to have a baby together — it looks like they’re perfectly happy with the little family unit they already have. Spears’ two sons with her ex, Kevin Federline, seem pretty stoked about it, too. The foursome spent some time together at lunch on Friday in Vegas, where Spears spends her time when she’s not at home in California. The songstress has had a super successful run of her show Piece Of Me in the flashy city, but the long hours may contribute to her and Ebersol’s desire to chill at home when they can.
“We’re homebodies. The thing that I learned from my parents was no matter how busy you are, home base is the single most important thing. As long as you’re centering back to home base and that’s the strongest magnet in your life, that everything else is okay,” Ebersol said in an interview with People Magazine.
Britney has been in the news this past week after fellow singer — and former Mickey Mouse Club member — Christina Aguilera did a spot-on impression of her for Jimmy Fallon. The impression was part of a segment on the Tonight Show that saw Fallon and Aguilera busting out their best versions of Cher, David Bowie, and Spears on random songs.
Despite rumors over the years of a bitter rivalry between the women, both have commented that they have no hard feelings toward one another. A blog post on Spears’ site in 2005 even mentioned that she would love to have a close friendship with Aguilera again.
“Britney would love to be close with Christina again. In fact, Britney recently wrote Christina a letter telling her how happy and beautiful Christina looks lately,” the post read.
However, the two have reportedly traded barbs over the years, with Aguilera saying in a 2003 interview that Spears seemed “lost” and nervous before the MTV Video Music Awards, where she performed with Madonna. Spears shot back in a later interview with Blender, saying, “A lost girl? I think it’s probably the other way around. I can’t believe she said that about me. When someone has been rude to you so many times, it’s like, ‘You know what, Christina, I’m really not about the fake anymore.'”
