American pop superstar Britney Spears wants to bring her children up in her home state of Louisiana.

The singer and husband KEVIN FEDERLINE are eager to start a family and, despite owning several homes in California, Spears admits her hometown of Kentwood is looking more appealing.

On her official website, Spears says, "For some reason, I can relax so much better when I'm in Kentwood. It's like food for the soul.

"I think when Kevin and I start a family we might build our dream home right behind my mom's. It's true; home is where the heart is.

"I've been having so much fun with my mom lately. We've been indulging ourselves with the simple pleasures of life. I think I may do this for a while."
