No drama between Britney Spears & K-Fed — & there might just be a budding DJ in the family

Color us impressed by Britney Spears and Kevin Federline these days. No more contentious high-profile squabbles: Britney Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline are chill co-parents to their two sons, Jayden, 10, and Preston, 11.

Federline talked to Bravo about their relationship as co-parents. "You fall into your routine, and it's really easy now... It wasn't always easy, but it's a lot easier now."

Currently, Spears is on tour, and her sons are with her. Federline is A-OK with the arrangement, but is clearly missing Jayden and Preston. He's eager to get back to spending time with his boys — especially Preston, whose budding DJ skills have Papa Federline pretty excited.

"Preston kind of knows how to DJ. He wants to learn more," Federline said. "I got him Ableton on his laptop, so he kind of messes with that. He hasn't completely dived into it, and I don't want to force him. I want to make sure it's something he really wants to do."

In addition to learning to DJ, Preston has a flair for hot music trends. "He's really big into the EDM trap music scene," Federline said. "He'll come to me, 'Have you heard this?' Looking for music for me to play."

Will the Spears-Federline crew be the talk of the club scene in 10 years? Hey, we wouldn't be surprised. Federline himself is a part-time DJ, and mama Britney is, well — Britney-effin'-Spears, y'all, in case you forgot.

So what's K-Fed doing with himself while Spears is on tour with their two sons? Well, Federline's got four other kids keeping him busy: Kaleb, 12, and Kori, 14, with ex-fiancée Shar Jackson and two other daughters with current wife Victoria Prince, whom he married in 2013.

"I'm used to not having all my kids [at once], and this is gonna be one of those years," Federline said of the boys being on tour with Spears. "When you are co-parenting, you have to be willing to give up some of the things you would really like to do."

We have to admit, it sounds like Federline seems to have really grown into his role as a father. "Having six, it feels like you're trying to control a basketball team. But it's worth it. All my kids are great; they get along. By the time you have six, you are so well seasoned," he said. "I can probably change a diaper with one hand and feed a kid at the same time."
