Wedding bells could be in Kevin Federline’s future.
Britney Spears’s ex-husband, who is currently dating former college volleyball star Victoria Prince, hasn’t soured on marriage, even though his divorce from Spears led to depression that fueled his overeating and made him “borderline obese.”
Asked if his divorce from Spears had made him wary of marriage, he said, “No, I’m not. I just want to be happy. Right now, I really am happy. Victoria’s a great person. She’s an incredible person.”
Federline, whose recent weight gain landed him a spot on the new season of VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club, which premieres Monday night, has said he was upset at being too out of shape to play with his kids – but that helped motivate him to lose weight.
The star revealed to Seacrest that his weight ballooned above 230 pounds.
“I was borderline obese,” said Federline who is joined in his weight-loss crusade by ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson.
