Jackson not surprised by Britney's pregnancy

Former Federline girlfriend said pregnancy was ‘a goal’ for the couple

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The ex-girlfriend of Britney Spears’ husband says she isn’t surprised to hear that the pop singer is pregnant.

“Hey, it was bound to happen,” actress Shar Jackson told MTV News last week in her first interview since Spears and Kevin Federline announced the pregnancy April 12. “It was a goal, and it was conquered, moving on.”

Jackson, who appeared in the sitcom “Moesha” and 2000 film “Love & Basketball,” has two young children with Federline and said “he loves his kids to death.”

Jackson said she is willing to let her kids have a relationship with Spears’ child. “I mean, they’re family, so if the other side of the family permits, then yeah,” she said.

Jackson, who is starting a cosmetics line with a lip gloss called “He Cheated,” has accused Federline of being unfaithful, but said she doesn’t bear him any ill will.

“It’s cool,” she said. “Obviously, God didn’t think that’s who should be in my life at this particular moment in time and that’s all right.”
