K-Fed added, "She's happy; she's doing really well. I want to say she's in a good place. I haven't spoken to her much since I've been [in Australia], both of us have been busy with her being on tour, but I do know from talking to the kids and talking to the kids' teachers that they're doing really good ... It's a good step in the right direction. I'm totally happy for her."

Kevin also spoke glowingly about Jason, saying, "He's a really good guy, I've heard a lot about him. I've spoken to him quite a few times as of now. He seems like a really good guy. The kids speak highly of him [and] her family loves him."

Though Kevin and Britney's two-year marriage ended in 2006, they have stayed on relatively good terms for the sake of their two sons, Sean Preston, 6, and Jayden James, 5.

Kevin also spoke about Britney's meltdown in 2007, telling the mag, "It was tough. [They were] just very, very, very dramatic times. I had to do what I had to do for the safety of our children. But at the same time, it tears my heart to pieces to watch your ex go through that, let alone watch anybody go through that. It's horrible. It was a completely dramatic, depressing stage of my life that I'm so glad I'm over and get to leave behind. It was tough."
