People reported that Britney Spears and Kevin Federline sat down for their first joint interview, meeting with Ellen DeGeneres on her show that will air Tuesday.
Seeking insight into how their meeting developed into marriage, Ellen found out from Britney that she didn't know immediately that she and Kevin were meant for each other, saying, "It evolved." She also admitted that she was the one who proposed.
"Did he say yes right away?" Ellen wanted to know.
"Not right away," Britney said. "I felt rejected."
As Kevin explained his hesitation: "I told her it's not right for the woman to ask the man, the man is supposed to get on one knee." As the audience delivered a collective "Awww," he added: "It took me about five minutes" before saying yes.
Sitting on Ellen's sofa with his arm around his pregnant wife, Federline went silent when the hostess asked them both, "What's the best part about being married?
Not that Britney jumped up to answer. She looked at her husband, and repeated the question to him. Finally, she suggested, "Um, having the baby?"
Then, he said, speculatively, "The baby?" But then he added, quite confidently: "The make-ups from the arguments are the best part. ... Married or not, I love being with her. She's very sweet."
Britney chimed in, "The same."
