What’s next in Spears’ life, career?

Donna Freydkin USA Today

Britney Spears’ bundle of joy made his appearance last Wednesday, she confirmed on her Web site. So what’s ahead for the first-time mommy?

Motherhood: Expect to see baby snaps of the youngest Federline progeny sooner rather than later, predicts Us Weekly’s Janice Min. The average hospital stay after a C-section delivery is two to four days.

We already know that the singer is hardly press-shy – she featured her wedding and baby shower photos in People magazine.

Says Min: “The risk here is that another photographer gets a picture of her pushing her stroller down the street in L.A. and that undercuts the value of the official photo.”

Career: Spears’ label, Jive Records, has no update on when her next offering could be in stores. But the savvy Spears has another iron in the fire: Her second Elizabeth Arden fragrance, Fantasy, hit stores Thursday.

“It’s a lot easier, and very lucrative, to lend your name to a fragrance than to record an album and go on tour,” Min says.

Still, don’t expect to see Spears take a break from the spotlight. Says Min: “Being a celebrity is addictive. Britney would like to go back to being Britney one day.”

Fashion: While pregnant, Spears wore an assortment of cropped tops, fitted slogan T-shirts, summer dresses (one paired with Uggs), bikinis and cowboy boots.

Lucky fashion director Hope Greenberg doubts Spears will “start dressing like a soccer mom. She likes showing lots of skin and trying to be sexy, and she’s going to keep doing (that).”

Greenberg would dress Spears in “a pretty, printed V-neck empire waist dress, with a flat thong sandal. There’s no excuse for not being able to look pulled-together and chic pregnant or post-pregnancy.”

Baby style: Spears will dress her newborn in simple, soft onesies “for that classic, sweet look,” predicts Wendy Bellisimo, a celebrity nursery and clothing designer.

But once her son starts walking, Bellisimo says, “she’ll really start into fashion for him and may start dressing him like a little Kevin.”
