(showbizspy.com) - Britney Spears' mom, Lynne, is hoping to reunite the singer with ex-husband Kevin Federline, according to reports.
Kevin and Britney have two children together -- Jayden James and Sean Preston. They married in September 2004; they divorced in 2006.
And the Spears matriarch, who describes her former son-in-law as "kind hearted" and "down to earth" in her new book, is now working hard to convince the former couple to give their relationship another chance for the sake of their two children.
A source tells the National Enquirer magazine, "Kevin has apologized to Britney for his failings as a husband and said he wanted a fresh start. He confessed she is the love of his life, his soul mate and was sorry things went so wrong between them."
Britney, 26, is thrilled by 30-year-old Kevin's apology and feels she is finally getting her personal and private life back on track.
The source added, "Not only is her career going well but it looks like her love life might be too. Britney never got over Kevin and she hopes this is the first step towards them reconciling. She knows a lot has happened but at least she knows he loves her."
