Britney Spears has posted a rare picture of herself and her two teenage sons, remarking that it is “crazy how time flies” as they grow up.

The singer, 39, shared the picture on Instagram as she suggested she usually refrains from posting pictures of them online as the boys are “at the age where they want to express their own identities.”

Spears has Jayden, 14, and Sean Preston, 15, with ex-husband Kevin Federline. She last posted about them in September in anticipation of both their birthdays.

Under the picture of her sons, she wrote: “It’s so crazy how time flies. My boys are so big now. I know, I know, it’s very hard for any mama especially a mama with boys seeing them grow up so fast !!!! Talk about enough to make you go to your knees ... GEEZ !!!!”

She continued: “I’m extremely lucky because my two babies are such gentleman and so kind that I must have done something right !!!! I haven’t posted pictures of them for some time cause they’re at the age where they want to express their own identities and I totally get it.

“But I went out of my way to make this cool edit and guess what .... They’re finally letting me post it !!! Now I don’t feel left out anymore and I’m gonna go celebrate .... Oh shit I guess cool moms don’t do that ... Ok I’ll just read a book instead.”

Spears is back in the public eye following the release of documentary Framing Britney Spears and the on-going court proceedings surrounding her conservatorship.

The pop star’s finances and personal affairs have been controlled by a contentious legal agreement since she had a public breakdown in 2008.

Her father, Jamie, was appointed her conservator, but Spears has recently attempted to have him removed from the role.

Last week, amid the ongoing legal battles, Jamie’s lawyer addressed the #FreeBritney movement, which believes the star should be allowed to take control over her life.

During an appearance on Good Morning America, Vivian Thoreen said: “I understand that every story needs a villain, but people have it so wrong here.

“This is a story about a fiercely loving, dedicated and loyal father who rescued his daughter from a life threatening situation. People were harming her and they were exploiting her. Jamie saved Britney’s life.”

She added: “Britney’s assets were clearly being mismanaged and she was being taken advantage of financially by some of those around her.”

The documentary also explores the celebrity and media culture at the time of her meteoric rise.

Following a backlash as a result of the programme, Justin Timberlake, who was in a high-profile relationship with Spears, issued a public apology.

Another hearing on Spears’ conservatorship is due to take place in Los Angeles next month.
