"This is to let people get to see the real me," Federline, who married the pop princess last September, tells PEOPLE.
Federline, 26, is known for loping alongside his pop star wife in frayed baggy jeans and tank tops, but for the March cover of the men's magazine he's dressed in a Sean John Collection suit and holding the couple's chihuahua Bitbit. That last touch was Britney's idea – she was by his side in December during the Manhattan photo shoot.
