Boy or girl for Sean Preston's little sib? "If it's a girl, the clothes are better, and there's the ballet, the dancing," says Spears (with the big brother-to-be on Aug. 12). "But if it's a little boy, I'll be so excited too."
During her first pregnancy, "I had no motivation" to exercise, says Spears, who gained 50-60 lbs. This time she's eating lighter, gaining 40 lbs. "Anything too heavy, I just feel, like, whoa! So I'm doing salads and stuff like that."

The milestones are coming fast. "He'll say, 'Mama, dada, nana, baba,'" says Spears. "He makes faces like a big boy. It's that guy thing. He looks just like Kevin when Kevin was little, but he looks like my baby pictures, too. His mom says that when Kevin was little, she couldn't leave his side, and he's the same way. Like the fact that he's not crying right now is crazy," says Spears, motioning to the nearby room, where Kevin's mom is looking after Sean Preston.
Like many second-time mothers, she worries about having enough love to go around. "That's the thing when I got pregnant again – I was like, 'Oh my God, how can I love something as much [as Sean Preston]?'" she says. "I've seen a bunch of women do it. I went home to Louisiana to visit my cousin, and she had a friend who had two little girls born back-to-back. I was like, 'How are you doing that?' And she said, 'You just manage.'" Sean Preston and the new baby "are going to be so close together, it's going to be weird," she says with a smile. "But I love it."
