Britney Spears has hired a former lacrosse coach to look after her eight-month-old son Sean Preston. The TOXIC star fired her former nanny after Sean fell from his high chair and hit his head earlier this year (06). Spears has recruited 28-year-old PERRY TAYLOR to help her with her son and some members of the US media have started referring to him as her "manny" (male nanny). Her new employee hasn't left her side for the past few weeks and has frequently been photographed helping the 24-year-old with her young son. Taylor is a former lacrosse player for the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. His mother CAROLINE tells website Taylor wanted to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan but "the women in his life talked him out of it". Instead, Taylor moved to California and began working for a security company and coaching lacrosse at Beverly Hills High School. A source close to Taylor clarified his position to American publication Us Weekly saying, "He's more Sean's bodyguard than a nanny." Taylor's mother confirms that her son is more suited to security duty rather than nappy changing: "He's just beginning to learn about babies."
