Spears was excited to spend time with Federline's daughter Kori on Aug. 5. "She was spirited and really happy," says director Dave Meyers. Her connection to Kori's dad, he says, is "very sweet."
Since her engagement in June to dancer Kevin Federline, Britney Spears seems to have settled into a looooong,
low-key premarital honeymoon. Shopping. A trip to Hawaii. Pool time. And, for a remarkably long stretch, no headlines. What's up? As she told PEOPLE last month: "I kissed a bunch of frogs and finally found my prince." Of course, this Prince Charming doesn't come with a white stallion – he comes with two kids: daughter Kori, 2, and 5-week old Kaleb (both by his ex-girlfriend, actress Shar Jackson). So on Aug. 5, Spears took time to try out her pending role of stepmom. After missing Kori's second birthday in July, Federline, 26, brought his daughter to an L.A. set where Spears was shooting a commercial for her new Elizabeth Arden perfume, Curious (in stores next month).
In what a source says was their second get-together – their first was just before Kaleb was born – Spears, 22, made it up to Kori. "She wanted to go to the trailer to see her whenever she could," says the commercial's director, Dave Meyers. Adds another source: "They were very playful. They had fun. They posed for pictures. You can call it a family portrait."
