Britney Spears, 22, is gearing up for her role as stepmother, meeting one of the two children fathered by her fiancé, Kevin Federline, 26, with his ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson, 27. Britney Spears has met fiancé Kevin Federline's daugter, Kori, but she has yet to meet his ex or newborn son.

People reports that on Aug. 5, Federline brought 2-year-old Kori to the Los Angeles set where Spears was filming a perfume commercial. Spears "wanted to go to the trailer to see her whenever she could," director Dave Meyers told the mag. Spears "was spirited and really happy."

The trio posed for pictures, People reports, but the family portrait isn't quite complete. Brit has yet to meet Jackson or Federline's newest child, a son, 5-week-old Kaleb.

People says there is no ill will between Spears and Jackson. (And rumors that Spears bought Jackson a home in Orange County are not true, the magazine says.) Rather, the timing just hasn't been right.

Brit has been busy in the months before her wedding (no official date yet). She has been shopping with her mother. There was a trip to Hawaii with Federline and a new home to purchase and fumigate in California.

Naturally, Jackson's busy, too, what with two tots in tow. But she also has The Shar Jackson Project, a reality show she's making that will showcase the struggles of being a single parent while pursuing a music and acting career.

That full family portrait could surface sooner than we think.
