Maintaining a healthy personal life and private life is always a difficult balancing act. In recent years, Britney Spears' life as a mother and a celebrity has proven to be something of a delicate line to walk.
"Her kids are what she's most proud of in her life," the source adds. "She wants nothing more than to be with them any time she can."
The challenge -- as Spears recently addressed earlier this month when she shared a rare snapshot of her and her two sons on Instagram -- is allowing them to have privacy and not get caught up in the media spotlight that often looms over her.
"The boys adore their mom and want to see her and be there to support her, but they also want to stay out of the limelight," the source shares. "It's a bit of a juggling act but it is worth it to spent time with her."
The source adds, "The other day she had a wonderful visit with the boys, which she never takes for granted because she knows their busy teenagers who enjoy hanging out with their friends."
On March 1, Spears took to Instagram to share a sweet photo of her and her kids, standing together in an open field.
"It’s so crazy how time flies .... My boys are so big now 👩👦👦 !!!!" Spears captioned the pic. "I’m extremely lucky because my two babies are such gentleman and so kind that I must have done something right. I haven’t posted pictures of them for some time cause they’re at the age where they want to express their own identities and I totally get it."
