Britney Engaged to Dancer

No wedding date set for couple

June 28, 2004 12:00 AM ET
Britney Spears and boyfriend Kevin Federline are engaged to be married.

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.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
