Britney Spears and Kevin Federline are hitting back at reports their one-year marriage is in trouble by posing for their first happy family photo with baby Sean Preston.

America's People magazine landed the scoop of the smiling couple, clutching their son, and the picture will appear on the front of the Thanksgiving week edition.

It's the first family photo, taken at the couple's home in Malibu, California, of the pop star and her family.

In the accompanying interview, Spears talks about her first Thanks giving plans as a mum - the family will watch the famous Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV and then decorate their seaside home for Christmas (05).
