BRITNEY SPEARS has wished friends, family and her loyal fans a Merry Christmas with a holiday card - which pictures the star grinning with her two sons.
The cheerful photo shows three-year-old Sean Preston and his little brother, two-year-old Jayden James, wearing sweater vests and glasses as they sit on their mum's lap in front of a Christmas tree.
The card, posted on the singer's website, reads, "Happy Holidays! Love, Britney, Jayden James and Sean Preston (and Papa's glasses)."
Spears shares the two boys with ex-husband, Kevin Federline.
Meanwhile, Britney has reportedly dismissed the two choreographers who helped launch her recent comeback appearances in favour of the man who directed MADONNA's recent world tour.
The Circus Starring Britney Spears will now be directed by Jamie King, who directed and choreographed her Oops! I Did It Again series of live dates in 2000 and the Material Girl's Sticky Sweet Tour.
King replaces Wade Robson, who directed the star in her first major U.S. tour in 1999, and Andre Fuentes, who choreographed for Spears beginning with her 1998 L'Oreal Hair Zone Mall Tour.
A source tells U.S. tabloid Life Style: "Wade and Andre were only hired to choreograph the promotional tour for Circus, which ended in Japan last week."
King's representatives at The McDonald Selznick Associates Agency have posted the following on their Web site: "Britney_s back and going on tour to promote her new album Circus! Congratulations to Jamie King who will be the tour’s director. Simon Ellis will be the Musical Director for the tour."
