The news comes just six months after the twenty-two-year-old pop star exchanged nuptials with a high school friend in Las Vegas. Spears' January marriage to Louisiana native Jason Alexander was annulled within forty-eight hours of the wedding, about which a spokesperson said the couple "took a joke too far."
This time out, Spears plans to be a little less impulsive, as no wedding details have been set.
The groom-to-be is Kevin Federline, a twenty-six-year-old dancer, whom Spears met earlier this year. Federline recently split with girlfriend Shar Jackson. They have a two-year-old daughter and are expecting their second child next month.
Spears is currently recovering from knee surgery after an injury sustained while shooting a video forced her to cancel her summer tour.
