Britney Spears is home again: The pop star left California on Friday and returned to her hometown of Kentwood, La. – her first trip back since before her hospitalization and custody battles of the past year, a source tells PEOPLE. Also in town is Spears's father, Jamie, who remains in legal control of her affairs until a July 31 hearing. The singer's arrival in her home state comes as sources say there is a planned baby shower over the weekend for her 17-year-old sister Jamie Lynn, who announced her pregnancy in December. Spears, 26, last visited Kentwood in early 2007 for her aunt's funeral.
I cannot tell you how AMAZING it is to see Britney back in the bosom of her family life. Irregardless of who was wrong/what went down to cause the rift between Britney and her family, I am just thrilled that the wounds seem to be healed (or at least are healing nicely) and she is able to, once again, enjoy the fruits of her family's love. I realize that this weekend is prolly all about JL Spears and the bun in her oven but I'm just really geeked about our dear Britney being home again. Woot! [Source]
