Britney Spears has already introduced Charlie Ebersol to her sons.

The 'Perfume' hitmaker, who recently started dating the TV producer and director, decided to let him meet her children, Sean, nine, and Jayden, eight, after her parents gave her new beau their stamp of approval and he won over her entire family.

An insider said: ''They are very excited that she is dating Charlie. He does well financially and is very private. They don't have to worry about whether he is using Britney.

''He is driven, smart and ambitious.''

The 32-year-old star split from legal researcher David Lucado in August amid rumours he cheated on her and despite being smitten with Charlie, 31, she is determined to take their relationship slowly.

The source added to PEOPLE magazine: ''It's new. They've been spending time together and taking it slowly.

''Britney was very emotional after splitting with David. She trusted him and was very hurt when he cheated on her.''

But it appears their romance is already heating up, as since news of their relationship went public, Britney has shared several pictures of herself with Charlie on Instagram and recently admitted she has ''someone special'' in her life.

Last week, she said: ''Yes there is a special someone. It's very new.''

The insider added: ''She has been in the best mood. She finds him cute and funny. She loves having someone to share her life with.''
