Britney Spears is opening up about life as a single mom.

"My kids come first, always," Spears, 35, says in a new interview with People. "There is nothing more rewarding than being a mom and watching my sons grow into young men."

"I am so lucky that I get to experience all of life's adventures with them," she adds.

Spears shares her kids with ex-husband Kevin Federline, whom she split with in 2007. Though the two have remained amicable for their children, the pop star admits co-parenting isn't always easy.

"The balance between work and my personal life can be a challenge [as a single mom]," she explains. "I always do my best to plan my schedule around my family whenever possible."

And judging by her Instagram, that certainly shines through. Spears is constantly sharing sweet snaps and highlights from play dates with her boys on Instagram, gushing over them in the captions.
