It seems the apples don't fall far from the tree!
Britney Spears 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 soundtrack.
"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.

Despite the history of former child stars having trouble transitioning into adulthood – as evidenced by Britney Spears's public meltdown in 2008, Lindsay Lohan's ongoing troubles, and, most recently, the upheavals taking place in the life of Amanda Bynes – former child star Mara Wilson said she "had a generally good experience" standing before the cameras in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), Miracle on 34th Street (1994) and Matilda (1996).
She also clearly developed a pro's perspective on what can happen as a child star matures – because she's now shared her thoughts in a breezy yet thoughtful essay on the Cracked.com humor site, titled "7 Reasons Child Stars Go Crazy."
In it, the 25-year-old gets a handle on why "not many child stars make it out of Hollywood alive or sane." She also sheds light on why "at any given time there are at least three former ones having very public breakdowns."

Britney Spears is headed to Las Vegas as a headliner this fall and already looks ready to squeeze into the skimpiest of costumes.
"Britney at her best! 31, firm & fabulous," reads the cover of Shape magazine featuring a slimmed-down Brit in a tiny white Deja Soleil Swimwear bikini.
"She's so inspiring to be in that great of shape after having two kids," says Deja Berkham, designer and owner of the line. "All Deja Soleil suits are designed to play up a woman's delicate curves and still be durable enough for the most active of women – much like Britney."

It's going to be Simon vs. Demi round two when The X Factor returns this fall.
Lovato is returning as a judge for season 3 of the Fox reality competition, the network announced on Thursday.
"I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on The X Factor," the 20-year-old singer said in a statement. "Last season was an unbelievable experience and I really enjoyed developing personal relationships with the contestants and the panel. I look forward to taking my previous experience and applying it to make this season even better!"
Lovato, who was joined on last year's judging panel by Cowell, L.A. Reid and Britney Spears, famously clashed with the tough Brit during the show, swapping biting commentary as Cowell sometimes questioned Lovato's mentoring abilities.
