Embroiled in ongoing court battles with his former wife, Britney Spears, Kevin Federline is trying to see that all four of his offspring get along - and he's getting a helping hand from his ex-girlfriend and first baby-mama, Shar Jackson.
Shar Jackson has two children - Kori, 5, and Kaleb, 3 - with K-Fed. Shar says that she watches Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, K-Fed's kids with Spears. Shar Jackson also has two older children of her own. That's some fertile ground.
"We definitely make sure the kids all bond together," Shar Jackson told People magazine recently. "I mean, they're siblings, they need each other."
Shar Jackson also stresses that she and Kevin Federline always strive to keep their family very closely knit, despite whatever differences they might have.
"We're not together or anything but we're definitely still a family unit," says Shar Jackson, who perhaps remains best known for the 1996-2001 show, Moesha.
"Honestly, we're like the best of friends... we're still a big part of each other's lives. Our children get to see two good friends, two people who aren't together, but still have a great relationship, and I think that's really important."
Shar Jackson has repeatedly praised Kevin Federline's parenting skills before, and says she exclusively trusts the FedEx man with all her children.
"I know he's in a good place," she says, "the kids are in a good place, and I made sure from day one, I told him, 'Make sure you have our children.'"
How is K-Fed holding up in the fight with Britney over Sean Preston and Jayden James - while the train wreck continues to lower her standards of behavior?
"He's great," says Jackson. "We don't even talk about that stuff, because that would be a non-stop conversation, and we don't even go there."
