Britney Scared Of Motherhood

ContactMusic.com: Pregnant pop beauty BRITNEY SPEARS admits she's "scared" about her rapidly approaching duties as a mother.

The 23-year-old singer and her husband KEVIN FEDERLINE are preparing for the autumn (05) birth of their first child together, and Spears confesses the thought of having a child of her own is often overwhelming.

She says, "I've always known that I was going to have a baby one day. But there's times when I get a little scared. It's mind blowing to have a child."

"I think it's kind of healing, too. Like, to your body. And therapeutic. All the secrets from your family come out of the closet for some reason. But it's good. They have to come out sometime. You know what I mean? Just your needs and wants."
