The Grammy winner took to Instagram on Thursday and responded to an interview she gave her son, Jayden Federline, 15, for an upcoming British ITV documentary about the Federline family.

The article features photos of the Federline family, including with her father, Kevin, and other family members, including Spears’ other son, 16-year-old Sean Preston. Barak wrote, “Both are handsome, creative, and curious about what life has to offer.” Jayden Federline reportedly said that despite choosing not to see his mother for several months, he hopes time will heal his family. “I love you so much,” Jayden Federline said of his mother. “I hope the best for you. Maybe one day we can sit down like this and talk again.” In Spears’ post, he wrote, “I tell my son Jayden that I send you all the love in the world every day for the rest of my life. My love for my children knows no bounds.” Federline reportedly addressed the challenges that both he and his older brother, who did not do an on-camera interview for the documentary, have felt in recent years. “We’ve both been through so much pressure in the past that this is our safe place now, to process all the emotional trauma that we’ve been through to heal, heal our state of mind,” Federline said in the documentary.
