Pop beauty Britney Spears and new husband Kevin Federline are allegedly spending their honeymoon drinking a powerful fertility potion in a desperate attempt to start a family.

The newlyweds are celebrating their marriage in Fiji and have embraced the South Pacific island's culture by guzzling its national drink, a bitter-tasting cocktail called Kava, which locals believe increases the desire for sex and aids conception, reports Britain's The Sun newspaper.

An insider says, "Britney has been drinking Kava on a regular basis. She's doing everything she can to prepare herself for having a baby.

"The resort bar has been preparing the special Kava mix. Usual blends of the cocktail can aid sleep, but the one they have been drinking is an aphrodisiac and helps conception. The only problem is, it tastes revolting."
