It seems the apples don't fall far from the tree!
debuted her new single, "Ooh La La," on Ryan Seacrest's radio show
Monday morning and revealed that her two sons, Sean Preston, 7, and Jayden, 6, were pros when they made a cameo in the music video for the song from the The Smurfs 2
"They were actually really, really good on set," she told Seacrest
. "They were, like, acting, and my oldest son, Preston, was right on cue every time they would tell him to do something … Later on I got to see what they actually did on camera and it was adorable."
It's clear Spears – who made her showbiz debut on Star Search
at the age of 10 – is really proud of her boys, who live with her ex-husband, Kevin Federline
The 31-year-old agreed to do the song because her sons are "obsessed" with the little blue cartoon characters. "We've seen The Smurfs
movie a million trillion times," she said.
Spears also revealed that she's currently working on her eighth studio album with Will.i.am and Madonna
's producer William Orbit, and said the music "will have more of a cool approach to it."
Her sister Jamie-Lynn is also rumored to be collaborating
with her big sis on the album, which the Grammy-winner says is due out "by the end of the year."
