The latest court hearing in her lengthy custody case with ex-husband Kevin Federline allowed the singer to spend more time with her sons, Sean Preston, two, and 20-month-old Jayden James.

A court spokesperson would not comment on whether the reports of overnight visits were true, only saying: “There was a change in visitation status that was ordered by Commissioner Gordon this morning. I’m not at liberty to answer any questions about the nature of that change.”

When asked whether she was happy about the outcome of the hearing, Britney – accompanied by father and co-conservator of her estate Jamie – smiled and
said: “Yes.”

The case will be reviewed in another hearing on 15 July. Britney lost custody of the children in October, and had all rights to see them withdrawn following her alleged breakdown in January.

Subsequent court appearances have seen her visitation time slowly increased.

Meanwhile, it has been claimed Britney left her sister Jamie Lynn’s bedside following the birth of her daughter early because she missed her sons so much.

The troubled star was with the 17-year-old actress when she delivered Maddie on Friday (20.06.08) but left the following day.

The Toxic singer was reportedly seen wandering round corridors in the hospital in McComb, Mississippi, looking distressed. Britney was seen in tears at Los Angeles airport the following day.
