Although Britney and Jason’s relationship is no longer, he still plans on remaining in her sons’ lives.

“Jason adores [Britney’s] kids; he loves them,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He was like their ‘other dad,’ so he’s not just going to walk away from their lives. He’ll be involved as much as makes sense.”

Britney’s boys “are doing great and [their father] Kevin [Federline] is actually a huge help and is a wonderful person in their lives.”

Rumor had it Britney and Jason split because she wanted more kids and he did not. The insider says that wasn’t the case. “Jason is genuinely open to kids of his own.”

But the source adds, “There were so many issues in their relationship that Jason really wanted those worked out before they could ever move forward with a wedding or more kids together.”

After all that’s said and done, the two “love each other,” continued the source.

“There were some major challenges and hurdles and constant work that needed to be done. … It just wasn’t working and things weren’t going to change, so it was time to let go.”
