Britney Spears and boyfriend Charlie Ebersol are making their relationship work despite their busy schedules because they make each other better.
So says the TV producer himself in a new interview.
"We're homebodies," Ebersol, 32, tells People.
"[It's the thing] that I learned from my parents [longtime NBC executive Dick Ebersol and actress Susan Saint James], no matter how busy you are."
"As long as you're centering back to home base and that's the strongest magnet in your life," he explained of his philosophy, "everything else is okay."
"Home base is the single most important thing."
Britney Spears and her latest love interest, who recently teamed up with First Lady Michelle Obama to advocate for veterans, began dating in the fall.
"The best part of this relationship is when we spend time together," says Ebersol, who says one of their best date nights was a New Year's Eve in.
"We were getting pulled in a thousand different directions, and my favorite thing in the whole world - besides her - is hot chocolate," he recalls.
"She just said, 'Let's just get hot chocolate and hang out.'"
"That was just the perfect night for me. If that's the rest of my life, then A) I will have emulated my parents, and B) I will be a very happy man."
The pair have been spending more and more time together, from spending Christmas with her sons to celebrating each others' birthdays together.
For Ebersol's 32nd birthday in December, Spears got her beau an adorable (not to mention extravagant!) cake and took him horseback riding.
No wonder she supposedly wants to make babies with Charlie Ebersol ASAP. But in the more immediate term, Valentine's Day is right around the corner!
"She out-gunned me so dramatically on my birthday cake!" Ebersol says of his new squeeze, joking: "Now I've got to gear up. I am very busy at work.
"Now I have a second job, figuring out how to keep up with her!"
While the pair remain private aside from the occasional social media post, Britney Spears' new boyfriend says she's had a profound impact on him.
"Honestly, the way that she treats people does make you look in the mirror and question how much you're really giving to other people," Ebersol says.
"Because she is a person who leads with her heart and treats people around her - who she knows and who she doesn't know - better than you or I."
"So it drives me every morning to want to get up and be better."
"It motivates me."
Wow. We know Wendy Williams says he's a fame whore, but if he is, he sure is going overboard to say and do all the right things, and then some.
