Britney Spears has been house-hunting for a mansion to house her fiance's growing family - and is keen on a swanky $4 million (GBP2.2 million) Malibu, California villa.

The TOXIC singer, 22, spent an hour looking at the five-bedroom property near popular Zuma Beach, as part of her quest to find a home for her and boyfriend Kevin Federline where his two children - daughter KORI, two and son SHAZ, born on 20 July (04), can visit.

A source says, "It looked like they loved it. They were in there for ages, then seemed to seal the deal with a lingering kiss in the driveway."

Spears met Federline's eldest child Kori last week (begs12JUL04) for the first time.

Kori's mother SHAR JACKSON says, "Britney painted her finger nails and it really seemed like they had a blast."
